Their homemade caramels are amazing and their other candies just as good. I spent a fortune on caramels but they were so worth it. It comes in different flavors, salted caramel, rum, anise and more. My only critique would be that the caramels are wrapped in different colors for the different flavors but not noted on the packaging so it... More

This shop catered my daughter's wedding, an ice cream social, and the whole thing went beautifully. Drop in here to window shop, browse, breathe in the aroma of chocolate. It's a great place to buy gifts and ice cream cakes for birthdays and other events.

Dear Overwhelming, I fear I am to blame for that. I ask my crew not to keep anyone waiting if possible. To greet our customers that come in the door. So please accept our apologies. Susan Ava Marie Handmade Chocolate More

I was taking a class in the Petersborough area and needed to be there for about nine weekends over about a year. I'm so happy I found Ava Marie handmade chocolates my very first weekend. I must've gone three times that first weekend. The milk and the dark are both really amazing. The artisan chocolates that are made with the... More

The dish of no sugar added ice cream and (for later consumption) chocolate peanut butter cups were satisfying- and all without any guilt attached! Nice stop along with a visit at their neighbor Monadnock Oil and Vinegar.

This is the BEST place to go for the BEST ice cream and no long lines! You will not be disappointed. The handmade chocolates are fabulous too. Best ice cream cake! Coffee drinks, shakes. Amazing jelly bean selection. Always a nice group of servers too.

This has become my first stop when I visit Peterborough from California each year. I love their chocolates, fudge, & caramels. Some of the candy even makes it back to California! I get a hot fudge sundae with coffee ice cream & sit on the patio overlooking downtown Peterborough. This wonderful store is housed in the old Transcript building where... More

My favorite flavor is almond joy on a sugar cone. Always fresh and large portions. You can ask for an itty bitty and it is plenty for me.

We stopped in this cute place for ice cream. They have handmade chocolates too. Nothing was inexpensive. Then again, I don't know where ice cream and chocolates are cheap. They have a few places to sit inside or out. All in all an eclectic cute place with a very friendly staff.
