Following the Prime Minister's Covid-19 update as of 23/03/20 we are only able to local do doorstep deliveries once per week - on a Friday. Orders will only be made up once per week and posted on a Friday too. Standard postage is charged at £2 per parcel (1.8kgs), and we are extending the 10% discount code to all areas - simply use DD8local. The website will continue as long as we can maintain supply as producers and wholesalers now begin to close.

Temporary measures in place

 Whilst we are limited in our activity and movements during these months of Covid-19 spread, the decision has been taken in best practice not to cook Star Rock due to the hand rolled nature of this confectionery.  Although, with years of chef experience, we always follow full food production standard processes it is simply not possible to wear gloves when making the rock - too hot (and the reason I have no fingerprints).

Therefore we are adding extra products that we do make but are normally only available in the shop such as fudges (made with a spoon!) and small Pick n Mix bags.

How best to use our shop

Thank you for visiting our website.  Some people know exactly what they are looking for - Star Rock - and hence you will find these products on the front page.

However,  if you are looking for the old fashioned sweets of youth and want to shop the many jars that line our walls in Kirriemuir, Scotland then you can do this by visiting the different shelves (sections) in our "Collections".

Most sweets are on offer in 100gm, 250gm, 500gm and 1kg amounts.  

And don't forget our jars, gift boxes, hampers and "pizza boxes"  

And if you don't see it - just message...

Postage and Delivery

The Star Rock Shop is a wee independent shop in the East of Scotland.  All products are hand packed and shipped from the shop.  It may be that the products ordered are made in the the shop and to fulfil your order a fresh batch or two is needed.  For each flavour of rock it takes 1.5 hours to boil, roll, shape then set the rock.  Due to the standing process of the tablet it takes a minimum 24 hours to make a slab.  Why am I telling you this - we ask that you allow 5 working days for us to process your order and pop it in the post safely packaged.

We send all orders through Royal Mail 2nd class delivery at the set rate charged by Royal mail for parcels totalling 2kgs.  However after a recent positive postage discount period we have tried to reduce postage as much as possible so now price delivery at £2 per 1.8kgs ordered (leaving us 200gms for secure packaging weight). It would be great to be able to offer free postage - we understand that, however, we have very low prices so this is not something we are able to do.
