What is a Maine Needham anyway?

We're so glad you asked!

Also known as Potato Candy, Needhams have a coconut and potato filling covered in dark chocolate (don't knock it 'til you've tried it - they're delicious!). They've been around for about 150 years and are a beloved treat of  many Mainers.

You can learn more about the history and tradition of the Maine Needham here.
