Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream ConnecticutThere’s nothing quite like walking across the old Mystic Drawbridge downtown with a delicious cone of ice cream. First-time visitors might see it as little more than the quickest route between the Stonington and Groton (Portersville to the savvy locals) sides of the historic downtown. But for residents and longtime visitors, the bridge is a proud piece of our history and heritage, and has been for nearly a century.

The Mystic River Bascule Bridge has been in operation since the early 1920s. A Strauss Heel Trunnion drawbridge, the bridge’s components are on the outside and make for a spectacle of watching machinery at work. Onlookers are known to gather in the center of town to watch the bridge go up and come back down to take pictures when a boat needs to pass.

Mystic attracts many boaters for events and activities throughout the warmer months of the year. Seeing all the different vessels—be they restored old ships, luxurious yachts, or just for fishing or other fun—parade up and down the Mystic River is a sight to behold (and takes about a much time as eating an ice cream).

Best of all, if you miss seeing the bridge in action, you won’t need to not wait long to see it at work, as it rises once an hour during the summer months. And we may be biased, but we think there is no better way of passing the time while waiting than stopping into the store for a treat.

The Mystic River Bascule Bridge is a piece of living history, one of many to discover during your trip to our small New England paradise. So, take in the sights and history with some of our wonderful ice creams, candies, chocolates or fudge.

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.

Connecticut Mothers Day Chocolate Candy

Mother’s Day, the day to honor the woman who gave you life and so much more, is only weeks away. What a better way to show her that you care than some delicious chocolate? How about only the best Belgian chocolate works of art from Mystic Sweets?

Our chocolates are popular throughout New England for their presentation as well as their taste. We mold our confections into detailed sculptures for every occasion and hand paint them carefully and colorfully. They’re also available in all three types of chocolate: dark, milk & white.

Chocolate is not all Mystic Sweets has to offer. We also feature many varieties of candy, fudge and ice cream - so pick some up for dinner or a gift.

Any good son or daughter knows that they can never do enough to repay Mom for all she’s done for them. So this Mother’s Day, treat mom by bringing her out to the Shoppe for her favorite treat and a cup of coffee. Taking her out for a nice dinner on her special day? Stop by the Shoppe afterwards for desert. Make this a Mother’s Day to remember, or the start of a new yearly tradition. Or if you won’t be passing through Mystic before Mother’s Day, look for our chocolates in stores throughout New England. You won’t regret it, and Mom won’t be disappointed!
