& thank you for dropping by to our little corner of the internet.  


The Sweetie Jar is a traditional sweet shop based in Lochgilphead, Argyll, which we run alongside our other shop, The Chocolate Box of Inveraray.

On a visit to one of our shops you can expect a visual delight with wall-to-wall of tempting treats....the only problem you'll have is deciding what to choose from our fantastic selection of sweets and confectionery gifts.

Our professional and courteous staff will give you a warm welcome and be happy to help with all your confectionery needs!  We will weigh out your chosen sweets by hand leaving you free to browse the shelves.

We have a wonderful selection of old-school retro sweets, delicious handmade chocolates in our very tempting chocolate cabinet, fudges, Scottish tablet, kiddy favourites, American candy and lots more. 

If you can't get to the shop then I hope you have just as lovely a time browsing our website and finding a little treat for yourself or a delicious gift for someone else!

If you don't see what you are looking for or have a specific custom order in mind please do get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.

Happy Browsing! 

Meet the Sweetie Jar Family:



I opened The Sweetie Jar in April 2016, followed by The Chocolate Box in April 2019.  Owning my own confectionery business was something I had always dreamed of since working in a sweet shop as a teenager.  I've been on a very steep learning curve ever since but wouldn't change it for the world!  I am also mum to seven year old Kate, aka The Littlest Assistant!

I love all things girly, sunny Autumn days, cups of tea and I can never resist a piece of cake!

This is Morwen!  Mo has been with me since The Sweetie Jar opened and having completed her time at college is back to undertake a Retail Management Apprenticeship.  She truly is my right hand lady and I'd be lost without her!

Mo loves cooking and baking, nice cosy movie nights and a good cocktail after a long day at work!



Dorothy is our newest member of the team, joining us in May 2021.  You'll find Dorothy in the shop on a Tuesday and Friday and when she's not here she'll more than likely be golfing, playing bowls or meeting up with her "faffer" friends!!

Anne is our full time member of staff at The Chocolate Box and does a fab job of holding the fort there.  I know the shop is going to be in safe hands and looking its best when Anne is on shift!



Hannah is our Saturday girl at The Sweetie Jar, after originally starting with us when we opened The Chocolate Box. 

In her spare time Hannah loves swimming, water sports and playing music.



This is Kate the bossiest, cheekiest and quite possibly cutest member of staff, aka The Littlest Assistant.  It's not uncommon to see Kate in The Sweetie Jar 'helping' on a Saturday.
