When the sugar craving strikes during a day of exploring Manteo, NC, shops, don’t take a break – take a trip instead to the boutique snack shops and candy stores in downtown Manteo. Find gourmet candies infused with locally distilled rum alongside the classic, old-fashioned candies. Can’t decide between salty or sweet? Enjoy both with chocolate-covered peanuts from gourmet peanut vendors. And be sure to treat yourself with a fresh, homemade treat from local bakers at Roanoke Island’s farmers markets.
