The Chocolate Shell
A new owner has refreshed this classic Old Lyme candy shop with a selection of artisanal chocolates and retro candies. Cases full of bon bons from Moonstruck and Divine Treasures (made in CT of organic, dairy-free Belgian chocolate) with enticing names like 10 Million Smooches and the wild blueberry filled Mainer will tempt you, while your tykes will be salivating over the selection of giant gum drops, Sugar Babies, Turkish Taffy and Pop Rocks. Carol Monnerat’s golf-ball sized truffles are here, too. Stop on your way to dinner to pick up a hand-packed box or treat yourself to a single, perfect piece.
