If you like an ice cream sundae this is the place for you! You can enjoy homemade butterscotch topping like no other I have tasted followed by fresh whipped cream or choose from a variety of toppings offered. Not only do they serve ice cream you can choose chocolates made on the premises.

Cathie went above and beyond to provide my family visiting from PA with a scrumptious ice cream sundae feast,complete with Putnam Pantry's own Penuche topping. My sister is still e-mailing me about how delicious it was. Can't thank you enough for the quality and excellence of the goodies and your kindness. Thank you.

They have any sweet you'd ever want, fresh from the kitchen out back. To add to all kinds and sizes of assortments in boxes, they have lovely items that would make the candy an extravagant gift. I picked up a delicate woven porcelain candy dish, when I was there--with the box of candy a great gift--and then they wrapped it!... More

We visited Putnam Pantry for ice cream, but of course had to look around at all the amazing candies, arranged in an organized and eye-pleasing way. Choosing our flavors was a delightful agony of decision-making that other customers were also going through. The staff was good about letting us try samples to help us choose... how else would I have... More

The Putnam Pantry visit has become my family tradition since the middle 1980's. Whenever we visited My grandparents in the US, they would take us to this ice cream place, which used to be in Lexington, MA back then as well. The most distinct character of Putnam is definitely the choices of toppings for you sundae. There are like 15... More

I've been coming to Putnam Pantry since 2nd Grade. Before Diary Queen and Friendly, there was Putnam Pantry with their homemade candies, chocolates and ice cream bar. Home made "Hot fudge" is a must! A recent renovation includes an outside patio surrounded by beautiful flowers. Putnam makes me feel like a kid again!

We were thinking this little place would have lunch items, but no. However, it is stock full of candy and goodies. And the ice cream - oh, the ice cream. We had the smallest sundaes (thank goodness) - pick from some amazing flavors. And then they've got a buffet line of sauces and goodies to go on the sundae. We're... More
