All bags of candy, fudge and especially the chocolates and extended overpriced. Would not recommend, instead go to Downeast Taffy for great fudge and taffy in the harbor!

Boothbay Harbor is a complete tourist trap, but Ornes Candy Shop had the most delectable buttery carmel that you must try. Wish I could remember the exact name of it, but they had samples.

Four words : sea salt chocolate caramels! Ornes has been in business for 130 years and it's clear they know how to make candy.

I've visited there the last 3 years and always look forward to peanut butter molasses kisses and chocolate walnut fudge. Some of the best fudge I've ever eaten. I dare you to walk by and not go in :)

Since 1885, this shop has been making and selling the highest quality chocolates and other candy treats. I discovered it about 5 years ago and it has been partially responsible for more than a few pounds on my short body! No trip to Boothbay Harbor...More
