Great coverage for new Bah Humbugs website

Intune built and launched a brand new online sweetshop for Bah Humbugs an old fashioned sweet shop in the North Yorkshire market town of Masham selling nostalgic sweets from yesteryear, and the business and its fantastic new website have already received great coverage in the press, including the Yorkshire Post.

Opened in May 2004 by sweet-toothed local entrepreneur Lucy Scott-Paul, Bah Humbugs has already gained fame for appearing on Emmerdale and for its amazing portrait of Elvis made entirely from Jelly Belly Jelly Beans that stood in its shop window, causing quite a stir.

Bah Humbugs is now set to gain a worldwide profile with the launch of its brand new website and online store – meaning people cross the world can now buy bags or hampers of Cherry Lips, Midget Gems, Pontefract Cakes, Sherbet Pips, Kola Cubes, Coconut Mushrooms, Aniseed Balls, Torpedoes, Sweet Peanuts, Lemon Sherbets, Rhubarb & Custards, Black Bullets, Wine Gums, Whirly Pop Lollipops, Hum Bugs and myriad other types of retro and traditional sweets that they won’t be able to get from their local store (unless they happen to live in the Yorkshire Dales and can visit the Bah Humbugs store themselves!).

Visitors to the website will be able to register and buy sweets securely online in any quantity, find out about featured products, special offers and best sellers, and read the always lively and entertaining Bah Humbugs blog. Lucy and the Bah Humbugs team are also very active on Facebook and Twitter, so fans can keep up with them that way, too – and they’re worth keeping up with because they’re always coming up with fantastic, whacky ideas for Bah Humbugs. Bah Humbugs owner Lucy Scott-Paul says:

“The new site website is the bee’s knees when it comes to buying sweets online, with loads of areas for customer interaction. Not only will people be able to order their favourite sweets and hampers online but they can join in with all the Bah Humbugs banter as well! There aren’t any other sweet websites out there like this one and we’re delighted to be the ones at the forefront of online sweetshops.”

The new website has been built and designed by burgeoning digital agency Intune Media, based in Knaresborough. Jessica Kemp, a director at Intune Media, said of the Bah Humbugs project: “How could we not have been excited by a project like this? We loved the concept of Bah Humbugs straight away: the idea of selling sweets that bring back nostalgic memories of childhood for adults as well as introducing today’s kids to traditional and retro sweets that they might not have come across before.”

“It’s always lovely to make a trip to Masham to buy sweets from the store, but it’s fantastic that people from around the world can now buy bags and hampers of these wonderful sweets online at any time.”
