Mainers Packed the Largest Candy Store in New England Now Open in Wiscasset
We love candy in Maine!
How fortunate are we to have New England's largest candy store, Sweetz & More in Wiscasset? They moved into the old Big Al's that closed recently.
Last fall Steve Jackson thought about turning the old Big Al's into the biggest candy store in New England. According to the Wiscasset Newspaper, Steve was a fan of Big Al's as he and his wife would stop by on their way to Boothbay Harbor every year. Steve's wife was a school teacher and would always stop at Big’s Al’s Super Values store on Route 1, Wiscasset to stock up. Steve knows that candy has value too. Everyone loves candy and everyone can afford candy when times are tough. They opened Saturday, April 1 (no joke) and the place was packed!
If you are looking for any kind of candy from nostalgia to international, this is the place to check out!
They are open every day from 10 in the morning until 8 at night. At 8,100 square feet, this Sweetz & More is New England's largest sweet shop. WGME reported that you will be able to try 835 varieties of retro glass bottle soda, 550 pouches of bulk candy, 300 baskets of pick-a-mix candy, 48 flavors of Jelly Belly gourmet jellybeans, 80 flavors of saltwater taffy, 48 flavors of cotton candy, 100+ PEZ characters, 30 flavors of ice cream, and 28 sweet and savory variations of popcorn.
They are right. Candy is just that little bit of sugar (and sugar-free) sweetness that can make a day just a little better. Welcome to Maine Sweetz & More!
