Joseph Dobson & Sons are rightly proud of their heritage. Traditional sweets endure the test of time and many of our lines date back to our origins, retaining popularity amongst young and old alike.

See for yourself how our sweets are made by joining one of the factory tours!


Despite modern production techniques, all our products are made in the same way they always have been. Joseph Dobson & Sons host regular tours of the factory where our guests can see demonstrations of the traditional skills of the confectioner and see how the same techniques have been modernised in the interests of safety and hygiene.
