Harbor Candy Shop – A Magical Place in Ogunquit, Maine

January 27, 2013 — Leave a comment

Ogunquit is a small coastal town in Southern Maine that is a popular summer destination. The name Ogunquit means “Beautiful Place by the Sea”. There are many great places to visit including the beach and the Marginal Way. A couple of years ago on a trip to Ogunquit, our friends introduced us to a magnificent place called the Harbor Candy Shop. It’s worth visiting Ogunquit just to experience the Harbor Candy Shop.

The Harbor Candy Shop on Main Street is a special place. When you walk in the door you feel like you have entered a small European Candy shop. The smell of chocolate and displays of candy are amazing. Harbor Candy produces fresh chocolates daily. If you love chocolate, Harbor Candy is a must stop destination. They are also many types of non-chocolate candies such as licorice, jelly beans and gum drops. Harbor Candy is a family owned business that has been in Ogunquit for 52 years.

Personally, I love small independent shops that provide an excellent product and an amazing customer experience. I enjoy businesses with great stories. Every time we visit, we walk out with a bag of tasty treats. We also look forward to our next trip to Harbor Candy. This is my favorite candy shop.

Harbor Candy was founded in 1956 by George Sotiropoulos. In 1960, they moved into their current location on Main Street which had been an old A&P Market. The family takes great pride in the products that they produce. Their ingredients are carefully selected. They utilize superior quality chocolate, pure vanillas, butters, dairy cream and fresh eggs.

Who is your favorite independent specialty retailer?
