A very familiar stop - not the same

We found this quirky little shop selling lots of touristy items and they have two Fun house mirrors to boot. But the fudge brings us back again and again. The Black Forest is our favorite but they have many more flavors. Bonus they will mail to you direct when you go back home!

Perry's was always a necessity when we traveled along the coast. We haven't done this in quite a few years. We decided to stop at Perry's "because we always did". We had read that they had closed and didn't realize it had reopened. It just isn't the same as when my kids were little. We wanted to show the grandkids... More

My husband and I have been visiting Maine for many years now. One of our favorite places to stop used to be Perry's Nut House. So naturally when we brought a friend with us on our last trip we talked up Perry's as a fun quirky place that sold nuts and really good fudge. We didn't know the parents had... More

We stop here every time we are in Maine to get the fudge. The Maple Walnut fudge is amazing. They also have lots of trinkets and gifts.

We visited Perry's in search of some good fudge. Perry's offers a wide variety of fudge, candies, and nuts. The fudge is very, very good. However, they only allow you to have a taste of one type. That was a little aggravating, as I was purchasing one and a half pounds and wanted a variety of flavors. Knowing that I... More

Not a lot of actual nuts and severely lacking in any kind of chocolate/nut candy bars or bark. What they did have was very overpriced. They also sell several trinkets and toys that the kids wanted. Several interesting items and a fun place to simply window-shop. Statue and sign outside are a must-have photo-op. Kids loved this place. Public restroom... More

In Belfast, I had to stop at Perry’s Nut House to see what was new. There was a huge pink metal dinosaur sculpture out front near the road. A large wood carving of a squirrel was still near the front door. The white elephant is still there. The gorilla is back inside the store. The main offerings are nuts, fudge,... More

Shop with some interesting and unusual gifts. Sells (and gives free samples of) really nice fudge of many flavours. Quite a few types of nuts, we went for butter maple cashews, which were fabulous. Somewhere to stop at on the way past perhaps rather than a destination

Two short rows of nuts, 10 rows of cheap glitch. And some fudge. Hannaford has more nut choices than Perry's Nuthouse. On the other hand, if you need some sappy stuffed lobster, this is your place.
