The Sweet Shop in Tobermory, Ontario

My gosh!  Here it is more than half way through October and I'm slacking a blogging.  This morning I just realized I hadn't finished sharing the rest of our road trip/camping adventure in August.  If you recall, we left Ontario, traveled through Michigan then crossed back into Ontario making our way to the Tobermory area where we camped for four days before making our way home.  The trip was amazing, bringing back a lot of memories of camping there when our kids were young.

We camped at Cypress Lakes annually when our kids were young.  The campground itself is very rustic with no hydro, pump water at various intervals for porting to your campsite and outhouses.  Once a trip we would take the kids into Tobermory.  Aside of the main purpose of the trip being replenishing groceries and laundry, it was always a day of discovery.  Tobermory is a wonderful little port village!  One of the biggest thrills for our kids was The Sweet Shop located at 18 Bay St S in Tobermory.

The Sweet Shop is a must stop for every kid and every adult who is a kid at heart!  This little gem still produces fine confections like gourmet fudges and brittles the old fashioned way.  Let me tell you the Canadian maple fudge is divine!  They have a nice ice parlour cream selection with enticing flavours like moose tracks, moon mist and crouching tiger.  Other types of candies not made on the premises are also available.  I was very tempted by the bacon flavoured candy but resisted.

This was a special trip for us.  We had the opportunity to see all the wonder and amazement in our grandkids eyes as soon as they walked through the doors.  Their eyes got bigger and bigger as they waited in anticipation for their ice cream cones, just like their parents' eyes did when they were young.  What wonderful memories.  Do be sure to stop at The Sweet Shop if you are in Tobermory!
