Top Ten Candy Stores In The Hamptons & North Fork


When drug stores and supermarkets start selling sweets right at the checkout counter, an honored American tradition starts to die - the local candy shop. Luckily, the geographical pockets of the Hamptons that cling to nostalgia still boast small, independently owned stores. Jars of colorful penny candy and homemade fudge are available. Nothing says summer like a little bag of sweets after dinner. Here are our picks for the best candy shops in the Hamptons and North Fork to satisfy every sweet tooth.

Fudge N Stuff is open late to satisfy late night cravings.
