Thanks, Gino, for your kind words! Just a reminder - the Lemon Lulu cakes are priced lower in the store - $16.95 & $21.95. That makes for delicious & easy entertaining on a budget! Looking forward to seeing you in the store soon.

So much assortment that I wanted it all. Best butter crunch I have ever had. The almond horns were to die for.

Thanks for your great review! The almond horns are very popular (& naturally gluten free!) & our buttercrunch is the best & our most popular candy! It's available on line for yourself or gifts! Many thanks!

I love Mother Myrick's. It's the place to go for chocolate. I spend too much and eat too much sugar, but can't resist it!

Description
Open since 1977, Mother Myrick’s Confectionery, with their famous buttercrunch toffee, caramels and chocolate assortments, is a local landmark to all who know Manchester, Vermont. Owners Ron and Jacki have cultivated a robust and popular catalog of artisanal chocolates, gorgeous pastries and decadent cakes, using only the finest of ingredients. Their famous Buttercrunch is made with Vermont’s own Cabot Creamery butter.

The retail shop is bright, fun, and makes people of all ages “a kid in a candy store.” Imagine the aroma of just-baked pies, sample the beloved Lemon LuLu Cake, and try a bite of Ron’s signature buttercrunch with its crisp toffee center, dipped in chocolate and rolled in fine almonds and cashews. Open every day!

Through their 40 years, Ron and Jacki have hosted memorable events to bring residents & visitors together. Their annual Summer Reading Program for kids K-6, their monthly Buttercrunch giveaway, and their Easter Egg Decorating Contest are all favorites.
