    This is a shop selling traditional sweets that I remember from my childhood- aniseed balls, mint bulls'eyes, lollipops, lemon drops, fudge, liquorice, rock, clove balls etc
    Beside the shop tourists can watch a man actually making sweets , and then go through to see the sweets on display before buying them.
    The factory is open daily from Easter to October.

    What to buy: I like the mint bulls' eyes and aniseed balls.

    What to pay: 3 bags of sweets for £5, or pick and mix and pay by weight.

    Cheddar cheese is a hard red cheese good for eating and cooking.
    Story has it that a dairymaid left her milkpail in one of the caves, and when she went back found it had changed. Thus, Cheddar cheese was discovered and became big business. Nowadays the mature cheeses are made and taken underground into the caves to mature for a further two years.

    Moslems should be aware that the cheeses are coated in lard and covered in cloth before maturing.

    What to buy: Cheddar cheese either the cave matured variety or normal cheddar cheese.

    This shop is one of several in Cheddar which sells the local Cheddar Cheese. There are also several other varieties available along with such goodies as Lemon Curd, jams, wines, liquers and the infamous Somerset Cider.

    What to buy: Cheddar of course! Aragina bought me a small round of white cheddar which I took great pains to take back to Canada with me. No, I didn't tell customs I had it as I wasn't about to give it up ;-) It was absolutely delicious :-)
