Now for the important news associated with this Maine Tourism Association Guide Tour Book Chocolate Trail.

The Island Candy Company has been included in the list of delicious stops while traveling Maine. Orr’s Island was and of course Orr's Island Candy Company Harpswell MaineHarpswell will benefit by the travel listing of Melinda’s shop as one of the must stops to appease that sweet tooth and bout of crankiness that sometimes sets in while traveling for long distances.

The listing of the post reads:

The Island Candy Company, Orr’s Island

Melinda Richter’s dark chocolate-enrobed peanut brittle is reason enough to wind down Route 24 from Cooks Corner in Brunswick to The Island Candy Company. The Atlantic shimmers behind the shop, colorful perennials fill a garden in front of it. Inside, chocolates fill multiple cases, and many are made with her caramel. The turtles rival the peanut brittle, and her toffees and barks, especially the pistachio, are heavenly.

Congratulations to Melinda and her family and thank you for the attention you have brought to this wonderful part of our world. Keep making Maine a sweet place to be in, and thank you for the dark chocolate that brings me back to a good place when thing get tough.
