May's has some of the best sweet treats on the Island, with very smooth fudge in many flavors, and some really good Peanut Brittle! Worth the stop for anything from a sample to a pound or two!

This place a little different than the others. Some original stuff here for an original store. Goodies like the other places for fudge with some things different. We bought a few pieces and goodies. Nice quaint store.

We tasted a few types of fudge & divinity & of course they were good. We stopped here because we could get 3 chunks of fudge for a good price, I think it was $19.95. We were with another couple so we bought them together....More

We were tempted at many fudge shops but chose May's because of the great story of how May's saved the fudge when sugar was scarse.

Sampled my way thru some other fudge shops & chose May's hands down. Not as sweet...creamier....natural flavors come bursting through...and the super understated amazing fact that it's still family owned & staffed since 1930's.. Delightful to talk to granddaughter working in one of the shops....More

One of many Fudge shops locate within the main shopping area. All the shops claim the fudge is made daily, but I suspect this was not sold daily. My fudge was tasty, but stale.It did not have that soft creamy taste or feel. However this...More
