The street will be on the northern side of Crewe Place and will run north and east through to Rosebery Avenue. It is part of a residential/commercial development at 5–13 Rosebery Avenue.

The name is inspired by the James Stedman Henderson sweets factory on this site from 1918. The factory produced popular sweets such as Minties, Fantales and Jaffas.
