  • A Delicious Day in Mystic

    Mystic Connecticut Candy Ice Cream Chocolate

    A day in Mystic is full of fun and possibilities. In addition to the regular attractions like our historic downtown or the Seaport, the summer months are filled with activities every week. And the Shoppe has an assortment of treats that go with every one of them.

    Any time of the day in Mystic has a Mystic Sweet confection to go with it.

    When the early morning sun comes up and you start the day, stop in for your morning cup of coffee. And while you're waking up with that warm cup of caffeine, look around at all the tasty treats we offer: candy, fudge, all manner of snacks covered in our delicious Belgian chocolate. All make a great snack to stock up on and munch on as you spend the day walking around Mystic.

    Come lunch time and the afternoon, that summer sun starts beating down and heating up everything it touches. Few would argue that there’s a better way to cool down than a summertime favorite like ice cream. The Shoppe has all your favorite flavors, and can be made even better with our syrups and other toppings. A cone or dish of ice cream is the perfect break from the afternoon sun, or the tasty cap to a summer barbecue or picnic. Heck, if you’re on vacation, your ice cream can be lunch.

    Our confections can also be dessert after dinner, or the perfect end to a wonderful Mystic day. A stop at the Shoppe can also be the highlight of a night on the town, whether you’re stopping in for ice cream, or filling up on your favorite candy or chocolates to take to your nighttime activity. And when it comes time to leave Mystic, you can take a sweet bit with you with our gift bags, or just a block of our fudge or packet of chocolate or candy.

    A day in Mystic is a day of fun with something for everyone. And every something in town has a treat in the Shoppe to go with it. If you’re in Mystic, come see what your taste buds are missing.

  • On Vacation? Bring a Gift Back for Your Helpers

    New England Connecticut Mystic Vacation Gift

    Mystic is an active and fun place nearly every day of the summer. The town draws weekend visitors and long-term vacationers from around Connecticut and New England and beyond. And we’re open for every day of the summer selling our treats to satisfied customers. Our ice cream topped with chocolatey and nutty toppings or simply on a cone is the perfect way too cool off on a summer day, and our chocolates, candies, and fudge are big draws.

    However, not everyone can make it out to Mystic for some summer fun and tasty sweets. But now, we’ve given you the opportunity to take a little bit of Mystic back home with you to share with family and friends.

    Our "Thank You" gift bags make a great gift for the people back home. Each is packed with chocolate-covered pretzels, offering a winning combination of saltiness and the sweetness of our quality Belgian chocolate. We also produce them in larger versions that come in light, dark, and milk chocolate to please all tastes.

    Our bags are a great present for the folks back home for any reason. Maybe it’s a special occasion, a holiday or some other special event in their life. Or maybe it’s just a delicious way to say thank you for keeping an eye on the house and getting mail while you were away.

    Before you head out of Mystic, pick up a take-home bag to bring a little taste of vacation to your friends or family back home. And while you’re at the Shoppe, try one of all our other tasty treats.
