Bought almost a pound of various types of their dark chocolate truffles that I hand picked and they were phenomenal. We visited Bar Harbor on a cruise and I would have several every day on the rest of our cruise. If you’re a chocolate lover,...More

Craved a sweet afternoon treat after touring. Had the salted caramel double scoop, excellent. So creamy and good. Extremely busy place, very clean.

Had peanut butter ice cream in a sugar cone. It was fine. Shop not set up well, can't see flavors ahead of choosing. Not sure how you buy chocolates here

This is a great little candy, chocolate and sweet store. You can get almost anything here including popcirn, ice cream, fudge, syrups, candy and more. A little something for the sweet tooth in anyone.

Best Ice Cream I've eaten in Maine. They sell other candies and chocolates but the draw is the ice cream. All I can say is the line was out the door and we had ours in less than 10 minutes. It was fresh and well...More
