Two short rows of nuts, 10 rows of cheap glitch. And some fudge. Hannaford has more nut choices than Perry's Nuthouse. On the other hand, if you need some sappy stuffed lobster, this is your place.

Best fudge I have ever bought from a store!!! Creamy, scrumptious, many flavors (salted caramel peanut SOOOO good!). Fun place to browse, too. A must stop when in Belfast!

When I was a child, we always stopped at Perry's Nut House on the way to northern Maine. Back then, there was a great selection of nuts. Today nuts are an afterthought. Not much of a selection. The homemade fudge is excellent. Pretty much a...More

Stopped because friends remembered it from school field trips. Okay for me, but my friends were a little disappointed. Maybe as adults we lose the magic? Some interesting gift ideas, lots of sweets. The fudge seemed a bit pricey to me...

It is a tradition to stop, get some fudge & a few fun items. It used to be more kitchy & fun when there were more museum items like the largest nut in the world on display or a stuffed gorilla. They still had an...More

Went out of our way to visit Perry's after a trip to Acadia. Having been there twice before, I really talked it up before arriving. The selections and the atmosphere have gone way downhill in the past few years. Nothing special at all anymore. Shame.

Nothing special. My girlfriend and I stopped in when we were checking out the towns gift shops. Not very well kept and the staff didn't seem that into it. Things were very pricy! Almost got a magnet but it cost almost $6 for something I'm...More

Limited selection of nuts despite the signage, but still worth the visit. Good selection of toys, candies and typical tourist items.
