Born in Coastal Maine, small business owner Nicole Heisey’s told TheBayNet.com the love she has for her family’s heritage, mixed with her legacy craftsmanship makes her handmade chocolates and candies stand out among the rest. Heisey said, “I sell powered covered caramels that were created in Maine. If you have never had them before, you have to try one.” She said, there are several specialty candies in the shop that come from Maine.
Heisey told TheBayNet.com that her price range starts from as low as 85 cents for a delicious chocolate pecan turtle. There are many small items that are quick and easy to grab but will have a lot of meaning to the one you love. For example, she offers specialty brittle made with Guinness Stout, cherry cordials, and the “I love Maryland,” a chocolate crab with a red-foiled chocolate heart that is pre-packaged with a little brown sugar in the bottom as sand.
