Harbor Candy Shop, Ogunquit
As if a full rainbow wasn't enough to brighten our day, while it downpoured we stopped in at one of our favorite candy shops in the world: Harbor Candy Shop in Ogunquit, Maine.
The key to success in the candy shop business is, of course, variety and they have it. Just about any candy you can remember from your childhood and all kinds of new ideas are to be found here, including home made fudge, hand packed boxes of fine chocolates and even vegan treats. Housed in a former, classic A&P Grocery Store, the shop has been a popular fixture in Ogunquit for over fifty years. As usual, you can click on any mouth-watering picture to enlarge it.
