Gumdrops and Lollipops
is old school - it's not just a candy shop, it's a candy shoppe
. But not in a pretentious way. It's really a classic, old-fashioned little seaside purveyor of fudge and chocolate and every kind of colorful sugary thing you could want.
it's in Niantic, which is probably tied with Stonington for the top spot in the "Connecticut places I blather on about way too much" category.
There's also ice cream. And yogurt (which I've heard is very good and I intend to try) and smoothies and other wonderfully cold things.
(If you saw me in person you'd probably think "You do not
need any candy." But here's the secret about candy: if you take pictures of it instead of eating it, it has no calories.)
