"We just received some of your candy from our son. I wanted to personally let you know this was the best candy I have ever had. It was like having a piece of heaven in my mouth. My personal favorite was the truffles, but the others were totally delicious too. Feel free to post my testimonial. Thanks for making such a delicious product."

"My husband and I were in this afternoon and bought a small bag of peanut brittle, along with some fudge, etc. We should have bought 10 pounds of the peanut brittle - it is AMAZING!!!! We will definitely be back! 
Thank you! " Janet H. November 30th, 2019

Two lovely ladies visited our shop on November 25th, 2019. They were so excited and happy to come visit our shop. One woman had been in before and decided to bring a friend who hadn't been in yet. They told me how they had their visit to our shop on their calendar for over five weeks and couldn't wait to come on the first day of our opening for the season. That just warmed my heart. They left with their goodies and said they were definitely coming back!

"Your candy is beyond delicious! What a wonderful surprise for Christmas, that first bite, Wow! Could have easily have eaten a pound of nonpareils! Feedback from Nancy in Florida

"I have been coming to this fair since I was a little girl with my Mom. She loved your Peanut Brittle. Every year we would visit your booth and take home a box. My Mom passed away a few years ago but I still come to buy a box and save it to put out at Christmas in her memory."~ This touched me so much when one of our sweet customers shared this story that it brought me to tears.At the Deerfield Fair ~ October 2nd, 2015

"Bought some of your penuche walnut fudge yesterday at the Flower Show. Writing to tell you how fabulous it was! Haven't eaten such great penuche since my Aunt Eva's when I was a kid in the 60's. The gentleman who sold it to mentioned penuche SHOULD be a little granular when I said that is how my aunt's used to be. Based on that comment, I anticipated something good but it exceeded my expectations. Thanks for giving me such a treat! I will be on the lookout for your booths at future events."

"Today I know I began a new Christmas tradition with my first ever visit to Nelson's Candies. It will not be my last! What a fun place -- SWEET!" Freda... December 2014

"Hi, just got the fudge today and it's literally the best fudge we've ever had! Thanks so much!!! 
VIA email April 2011

Hi Janet,
I just wanted to tell you that the package came in yesterday in perfect condition!  It is amazing how quickly those boxes can be wrapped, too!!!  Mine went into the freezer so that I can enjoy some in the middle of the upcoming long winter, when I really need a boost!  My family will certainly be surprised and will enjoy them.  I am not sure if I told you or not, but the first time I had Nelson's Fudge was at the Fryeburg Fair when I was just a kid, and I am 59 now, so that is a lot of great fudge.  Thank you again for this, and I hope you and your family have a great Holiday Season and a very Merry Christmas!

On a recent day this December a customer came in to have her packages put together for us to ship to her family members. They live as far away as Nevada and Texas. She told us they say our peanut brittle was the best they have ever had. Guess what she put in all her packages?
