Gourlay's Sweet Shop reviews
I'm talking about the one at Penny Royal. First impression before we came in was that it would be like other sweet factories. However, the owner invited us to taste their sweets and watch the production of the mint drops while he explained it. We had casual chat and what impressed us was the way he cared about his employees and customers. The hand made chocolates were divine and include some unique flavours. Their acid drops, one of the best seller, use a different kind of acid so it's not to overly powerful like citric acid. This place is a gem in Launie!
Staff are really nice and helpful, great location for tourists. Great range of sweets and a large amount are made in Launceston!!! You can even go visit the factory.
