I did my part for Independents' Day by purchasing some Panda liquorice candy from an independent health food shop in Newcastle called Almonds & Raisin. It's a great little shop in Princess Square, near City Library, but sadly they do not have a web page (or at least one I can find).
They sell all sorts of items that one would classify as healthy and ethical. Amongst these are delicious candies, cookies, interesting teas, and of course soy products of all kinds.
So if you are in need of something that you can't seem to find in the average grocery store, you may just be thrilled to find it on a shelf in Almonds & Raisins.
