If you’re anything like me and your “sweet tooth” has taken over your entire mouth, there are ample opportunities to squelch even the strongest of cravings in Kennebunkport Maine. While there are occasionally days when the smell of
freshly baking cookies in our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast can calm my sugar cravings, it takes multiple servings to reach satiation. Fortunately for me, there are oodles of amazing spots in Kennebunkport Maine to satisfy any confectionary craving!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! On a steamy afternoon, like the ones we’ve had recently, the options abound for frosty treats. Just steps from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast lies the famous Ben & Jerry’s, a New England creation offering rich flavors and high milk fat content. A stone’s throw from there sits Aunt Marie’s, which features a Maine made ice cream (Gifford’s). Though
the flavor options are more limited, the charm of this hole-in-the-wall (literally) absolutely makes up for it. If you find yourself exploring the sands of Goose Rocks Beach, Goose Rocks Dairy is not to be missed. With enormous servings and creative flavors all made in house, this shop is truly one of the gems of Kennebunkport Maine.
If something fruity is more up your alley, check out the delicious frozen beverages at Smooth-a-Licious Smoothies, just steps from our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast. Need something lighter? Try the fresh squeezed lemonade at Aunt Marie’s or the stand adjacent to the Clam Shack. Roly’s English Fudge also offers an array of gelato options, especially fruit-flavored ones!
Hankering for chocolate? Try the famous confections also available at Roly’s English Fudge (their Cadbury variety is my personal fave), but be forewarned, English fudge is crumbly and less dense than traditional American types, with distinctly caramel undertones. If you are partial to more standard fudges, the Candy Man features ample options. This store also offers chocolates that are hand made in their York Maine base, as well as typical candy store treat – jelly beans, gummy worms, etc. But my favorite part of the Candy Man is its extensive salt water taffy assortment and the looping video of the taffy-making process. The Sugar Shack is of a similar ilk sits on just on the other side of the Kennebunkport Maine bridge, making its location perfect for stopping just before or after your trip to the beach!
So no matter when your craving hits during your Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast vacation, you’re sure to find satisfaction quickly and easily!
