The World’s Longest Candy Counter

October 2, 2010

I have a sweet tooth.  It’s not terrible, but sometimes it does rear it’s ugly head.  For the most part, I’m happy with a little bit of sweet, but there really is something to be said about feeling like a kid in a candy store!

The other week, Solomon and I went away for a night to Littleton, NH.  It was a ridiculously low key trip.  We wanted to just RELAX, enjoy some nature and spend some quality time together.  We didn’t really do a whole lot (except climb Mt. Washington…on a tram), and just kind of checked out some local places. 

It was highly recommended to us that we stop at Chutters, which boasts the world’s longest candy counter…112’ of candy to be exact!

Surprisingly, neither Solomon nor I went overboard with our candy.  We each just picked a few things we loved.

I can’t say no to Jelly Belly jelly beans, especially pink grapefruit and sizzling cinnamon.  I also just had to try French vanilla!

Picture 013 I also have a soft spot in my heart for red rope licorice.

Picture 016 And malt balls…including pumpkin flavored ones!

We settled on a little bit of Moose Tracks to enjoy at home!

Truthfully, I haven’t met very many fudges I haven’t liked, but hot damn, this was amazing!  There’s something so special and perfect about homemade fudge, and this one topped the charts!

After all of this, we both passed out into a blissful candy coma on our little balcony.  It was wonderful.  And so worth the drive!

What’s your favorite kind of candy?  Sour?  Chocolate?  Gummy? 

What’s a candy you can never say no to?

    Yum…I’m a huge candy lover too- thankfully more controlled now then when I was little 🙂 I’d love to visit that place.
    I’m glad you guys are relaxing and having fun these last few weeks!

    Yum! My favorite candy is anything dark chocolate. You just can’t go wrong there. Although I used to be a HUGE swedish fish fan

    Oh holy goodness that place would be my death! So much of that looks good. I love candy I’m usually a chewy candy fan, unless its a high quality chocolate or good fudge. Then I’m all over the chocolate.

    I have a big sweet tooth too. My favorite candy is probably Jelly Bellies. Love those – although not the buttered popcorn flavor. Bleh.

    I’m not a huge chocolate fan.

    I would probably go into some kind of sugar shock in a place like that!! YUMMMMMMMM!! 🙂 I’d have a very hard time not buying a little of everything. There’s a fudge shop in the little town I went to college in and they have the BEST fudge! Oh my goodness… I love the fudge they have with toffee in it… amazing!! 🙂

    Oh my gosh, what a fun place to visit! I love old school candy shots like that and it makes me happy to see that some are still striving!

    I am equal opportunity with pretty much all candy, the only thing I dont like is black licorice. Swedish Fish are the one thing I will never turn down!
