This place hasn't changed in the past 35 years. It's still quirky and weird, filled with Maine souvenirs and junk you don't need. But the fudge. Oh my. Their fresh fudge as delicious as I remember.

Perry's has been around a long time, and is the kind of place you can get all the touristy/gifty things, plus fudge and nuts and popcorn. Not my favorite, the place feels old and sort of sad.

Perry's was always a necessity when we traveled along the coast. We haven't done this in quite a few years. We decided to stop at Perry's "because we always did". We had read that they had closed and didn't realize it had reopened. It just...More
