An irate dad stormed out of a sweet shop with his daughter after complaining about x-rated confectionery that was on display by the till.
The dad was with his 10-year-old child when he popped into the Kingdom of Sweets shop while out on a shopping trip in Cardiff city centre recently.
His daughter had been saving up money to buy sweets in the store as 'it's expensive and it's a real treat to go there'.
But when they went inside, the dad said that there was a huge display of adult-themed sweets, with penis-shaped lollipops, 'Ball Bands', 'Choc-clits', 'Jelly Super-sperms' and a 'Candy Blow Job Practice Willie' on sale.
Speaking about the incident, the dad said: "It was inappropriate. I'd expect it in an Ann Summers, which is fine.
"I'm not prudish at all but I didn't expect that in somewhere where you'd take children.
"On the high street in the capital city it's not on. Maybe in a distinctly adults-only section, tucked away somewhere, but no - it was right next to the till.
"My daughter went: 'I know what that is' because she's 10.
"We've spoken to her about certain things, she's not completely naive, but I just don't think that should be put in front of children on the high street in the middle of Cardiff."
The angry dad said it just wasn't what he expected to see in a sweet shop.
"I don't think that's appropriate to be in front of children - penis-shaped sweets - really," he went on.
"It goes from a sort of innocent place where they sell Oreos and chocolate bars and stuff to something that I don't think should be in that kind of environment or maybe tucked away where only adults can go."
The pair often visit the sweet shop during half term and the school holidays but hadn't seen the sex display before.
And after seeing the display, the dad said that he left the store with his daughter without buying anything.
He added: "It's a real treat and it spoilt it for us really badly. We went to the castle and for some food and to go to Kingdom of Sweets was to top it off as a real treat."
A spokesman for Kingdom of Sweets confirmed that the items had been removed.
The statement read: "We thank you for bringing this to our attention. The items have been withdrawn from stock."
