Welcome to the Granite State Candy Shoppe located in Concord, New Hampshire.

Established and managed by the Bart family in 1927 where we have been delighting customers for three generations.

Today, the same homemade chocolates, candies and nuts are prepared daily and available to everyone on the Internet.

Enjoy your visit, e-mail us if you have any questions, and we look forward to serving you up something delicious

Peter, our granddad and founder of the Granite State Candy Shoppe, came to Lawrence, Massachusetts in 1909 from the Greek Island of Lesvos.

In Lawrence, Peter found a job as a candy maker where he learned the trade and honed his skills.  Several years later he moved to Concord,

found an old building on Warren St and started making candies the old fashioned way. In the time honored tradition of our grandfather Peter

we still use many of his original recipes and candy making techniques and equipment.  He and his wife raised a wonderful family of five children.

Two sons, Costa and George, took over when Peter retired, followed by grandsons Mike and Jeff.
