It will be the first and only Haribo store in Essex, with only seven across England.

HARIBO Store Manager Sam Rogers said: "We really can't contain our excitement.

"We have so many treats in store for shoppers when we open our doors, including a HARIBO Pick 'n' Mix, which features more than 30 varieties of sweets. From Tangfastics to Starmix, MAOAM Bloxx to Goldbears, Jelly Babies to Fruity Frogs, we have it all.

"It really is the 'Happy World of HARIBO'. Everyone stepping foot in the store will experience that childlike moment of happiness you remember from being an excited kid in a sweet shop."
