New Hampshire is best known for its stunning scenery, but
for those with a sweet tooth, the most appetizing views in the "Granite
State" might just come from Chutters Candy Shop in Littleton, N.H.
Chutters holds the unique record for the longest candy counter in the world at 111 ft. and 11 inches, according to the Guiness Book of World Records. Almost like touring a museum that showcases the history of candy -- about 800 jars in all -- Chutters features so many kinds of penny candies and familiar and hard-to-find sweets that it's hard to know where to begin. Some people just stand there stunned -- with that deer-in-the-headlights look and mouths ajar -- not knowing where to start. Others just pace back and forth, finally making decisions after several minutes of this light-to-moderate exercise.
Looking somewhat like an old-fashioned department store with its open floor plan and laid-back hometown feel, Chutters also sells some delicious homemade fudge and chocolates, regional gift and souvenirs, candles, furnishings and a limited amount of gourmet foods on two levels. All of this is nice, of course, but it's really the candy counter that capture's one attention. Malo Cups, Sky Bars, Necco wafers, and Sour Balls, anyone?
Chutters is located at 43 Main St., Littleton, NH. Tel. 603-444-5787
