Mother Myrick's Confectionery
Ranked #1 of 2 Dessert in Manchester
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.

Best chocolate cake ever, sweet yet still that little punch that good chocolate has. Not to be missed.

I've tried many sugar-free chocolates in our Western corner of MA, southern VT, and Hudson Valley, NY, but Mother Myrick's trumps them all. They offer at least half a dozen sugar-free options, including a gorgeous almond bark in light and dark chocolate, as well as peanut clusters, peanut butter cups, peppermint patties, peppermint crunch, coconut chews, etc. I'm a dark chocolate lover, who does not like anything sickening sweet. Myrick's always sweetens their sugar-free chocolates with a light hand; you can always taste the richness of the dark chocolate. My partner loves their baked goods, as well as their fudge and regular chocolates. The staff has always been most charming.

This place was much better before they moved several years back. It's not bad, but there's plenty of far better pastry/chocolate shops. My God if you live in NYC, this place would be pretty lame. Nothing in comparison to say..Burdick's Cafe(in Walpole,NH)

This place is the best for bringing home a special treat. The fudge is amazing but don't forget to bring home their special hot fudge sauce. So Good!
