The Chocolate Drop Candy Shop was founded in 1996 in downtown Belfast. Over the years the product line has been expanded to include local chocolates, Jelly Belly’s, and many types of nostalgic candy.
In 2011 the Chocolate Drop was bought by David Brassbridge and David Crabiel. In the spring of 2012 they completely transformed the Chocolate Drop into a 1950’s EXPERIENCE!
The entire store was remodeled, a black and white checkered floor was installed, and a real old time soda fountain was added. Daves’ Old Fashioned Soda Fountain was born! The addition of ice cream was a big hit with tourists and locals alike.
Now you can order an authentic Egg Creme made with Fox’s U-Bet syrup imported from Brooklyn, or have an old fashioned Vanilla Coke all while listening to 1950’s Rock and Roll.
The store is managed by Dawn Desmarais of Searsport and staffed by Dawn, Suzanne Ramsey and a host of friendly and helpful Soda Jerks.
