Bring the kids or be a kid!
The Aussie Style Strawberry Licorice is absolutely amazing, but if you haven’t had Squirrel Nut Zippers (think caramel and vanilla in a peanut-butter type taffy) or Chocolate Ice Cubes (yes, they do melt in your mouth) in a while, you might want to try them first. For a real quirky treat, try a Hammond’s Pigs ‘N Taters Milk Chocolate Candy Bar. It’s filled with bacon and potato chips! Seriously.
Have a hankering for something fresh from the oven? Go south along Main Street and antler-up at the The Chocolate Moose Bakery & Cafe (located inside M. Judson Booksellers). With desserts baked from scratch daily, three rotating (and five standard) cupcake flavors, cake pops, and specialty items like chocolate mousse and peanut butter pie, you really mooost buy something.
If you prefer your sweets with a little more salt, then Poppington’s Gourmet Popcorn (also downtown on Main Street) will really hit the spot—or should we say taste buds? Stop in and tell owners Bob and Rose that you need to try their Tuxedo popcorn pronto. (It’s caramel popcorn smothered with both milk and white chocolate. Yum!) For something a little more “out there,” try the cheeseburger and Bloody Mary flavors. They won’t disappoint!
