Ashmores Kandybox Limted is a traditional Sweet Shop which was located in Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.
The shop was known locally as “Kandybox” for many years, with many residents growing up with this shop as part of their childhood.
Andrew and Rebecca took over ownership of this business in May 2017 and it reopened the business on 2nd June 2017. There was a redesign to the layout which Andrew and Rebecca felt needed to be completed before reopening – in this redesign the layout was changed from how it was left by the previous owners and put back to the layout which many people loved and remember; this included moving the counter back to the front of the shop which is where the very original owners “Phil & Maureen” had the counter. The layout opted is very similar to how Phil and Maureen had it during their tenture. The shop premises closed in December 2019 and became an online only business.
We are committed to stocking items which people want to see and have the policy “if we don’t stock it ask” as we welcome suggestions for new lines to stock and want to ensure that we stock items which are going to be popular.
When we took over in 2017, we opened with over 90 different lines of traditional sweets which are displayed in jars behind the counter. As of August 2018 we have increased that to 130 jars of sweets.
When we opened in 2017 we grew our range of Dobsons Mega Lollies which are a popular line among children from an initial stock of 9 to the current stock level of 20 of the 95 flavours available.

Here at Ashmores Kandybox we take food hygiene seriously. One of our owners has worked within the food sector for many years, currently working as a Carver within a local restaurant she is very aware of the risks associated with mishandling of foodstuffs. In March 2018, we were inspected by Wolverhampton City Council Food Standards & Hygiene team. Following their inspection they have rated us as a level 5 for food standards and hygiene. You can also find us listed on the Food Standards Agency website’s register of food establishments which will show the date of inspection and the rating awarded.
