Granny Annies was established in 1998, Great North Road, Winton, Southland. Founded by Esther and Chris Price, we commenced the family business selling old fashioned sweets out of the lovely old glass jars.
In 2007 we complimented our sweet and chocolate range with our very yummy fudge product. Cream and butter fudge has always appealed to Esther, “I think it goes back to my childhood being on a farm and my Mum, Ruth, milking a Jersey cow and always having delicious fresh cream. I can remember making the butter in the little wooden butter churn and making butter balls with the butter pats! Those were the days!!”
Then we started getting out and about with our cool little starliner caravan to many events and markets from Christchurch south, mainly in Southland and Otago. We have always been really appreciative of the support given to us by the people of Southland and Otago that has contributed to the success of our business.
In 2010 we opened our little lolly shop on the upper level in the Meridian Mall in Dunedin.
Following in 2012 with our small sweet shop on George Street, Dunedin, next to Westpac, just down from the Octagon, where we welcome many cruise ship passengers and tourists to indulge in a sweet treat.
It is lovely to receive compliments when customers come into our store that it reminds them of their childhood and takes them on a trip down memory lane! We also try and create a lasting memory for all the littlies that come into our store for the very first time!
We aim to have all the good old favourite sweet treats to tempt your tastebuds! You can buy lollies online from our online store, with delivery throughout New Zealand and the world. The range so far includes everything from American sweets and English groceries to hard boiled lollies, nougat and NZ-made fudge.
A sweet treat – always a great gift or treat yourself!
