Just down the road from our house is this tempting confectionery. Hard to resist chocolate, pastries and candy of all kind. We especially appreciate the wide selection of sugar free candies and the seasonal gift items.

Ok, I'll admit I am a bit of a chocolate connoisseur:

We stopped by and i got only a few pieces to sample as I did not really have high expectations. We also got a piece of fudge.. It was all very average. There were also small samples out of one of their cakes and it was not even worth finishing the small sample.

Any trip to Manchester, VT. must include Mother Myrick's. Shopping at the outlets might be fun and reward you with some excellent buys, but a visit to Mother Myrick's will reward your taste buds.

There are sooooo many good things to enjoy here, and frequently there are samples to help you decide. Here is my short list of MUST BUYS.

Buttercrunch (milk or dark chocolate)
Lemon Lulu cake
Lemon Almond Brittle
Rugelach

None of their products are cheap, but we're talking quality here. Just make sure to buy more than you can eat on your drive home so you 'll have some left to enjoy once you get home. It's THAT good!

Note: This is a bakery and confectionery shop for take-out only. It does not have tables or beverages.
