My first stop was in Niantic , Connecticut at a place called Gumdrops and Lollipops . We stopped in Niantic for a stroll on their newly created riverfront walk, which is about a mile long. There were plenty of walkers out on this warm winter day – finding an ice cream shop there was a pleasant surprise.
The ice cream shop specialized in both candy and ice cream, but it did serve other food as well (like I care!). The ice cream-disher found my new quest entertaining, as did some of the customers eating lunch. We had plenty of volunteers to take our picture. I had two scoops of ice cream: one grasshopper and one Reese peanut butter cup. I totally enjoyed the ice cream, the shop and Niantic.
