Calef's Valentine's Day display of stacked Moon Pies

Calef’s is known to bring you nostalgic, locally made items, and this Valentine’s Day is no different.

With a bountiful Candyland, it’s clear we have a sweet tooth. Here are some top sweet treats for Valentine’s Day!

To start Moon Pies. Moon Pies began back in 1917 and are as popular as ever. Today, they are known for the perfect combination of marshmallow, graham and chocolate. Through the years minis and a variety of flavors have been added as the Moon Pies tradition is passed down from generation to generation.

This year, at the store, we have stocked the exclusive limited edition Valentine’s Day Moon Pies. The box is packed with 12 strawberry minis and 12 ready to cut valentine cards. The retro box of sweets is good old fashioned fun.

More fun with food can be shared with Coastal Popcorn. Hand made, one batch at a time in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, Coastal popcorn is air popped with non GMO corn. Though they take their commitment to the best ingredients seriously, the flavors are seriously fun! We have stocked the silly flavors that will appeal to our younger visitors in the Candyland section. On the shelves you will find flavors like Dinosaur Dung, Fair Dust, and Cotton Candy.

And if you are going all in on quirky this year, let Calef’s introduce you to The Perfect Man. He is in high demand and available only in store. We sell a box of 12 chocolate minis or a hunk of milk chocolate.

Online shoppers, don’t fret. Old fashioned candy is always available online. Its great for those with a sweet tooth and is always a unique gift. Shop some of our favorites below!

We hope you have a fun Valentine’s Day filled with some sweets and a chuckle or two.
