The Sanborn family, according to their website, opened their candy business back in 1957 and had been voted the Best Candy Shop on the Seacoast, as well as having been awarded for having the best dark chocolate in the entire state of New Hampshire.

But a new day has dawned in the candy world. According to several different Facebook posts, the new owner says they will still carry all the favorite chocolate and candies of their many customers.

Feel free to drop by and wish them well and pick yourself up some candy to brighten your day!
