116 generation candy maker Dan Tuck says they do nine demonstrations per day for visitors, who are fascinated to watch the confection- ers at work hand-pulling, hand-cutting, and hand-shaping hard candies like candy canes and ribbon candy to create glossy, airy treats from pure sugar—without any corn syrup added to the mix. "ere's no mass manufac- turing," he says. "[Visitors are] just amazed that we're still doing it this way." Equally deli- cious are their other candies, like saltwater taffy, assorted chocolates with cream centers, and sea salt caramels. Dipt Few flavor profiles are as satisfying as the combination of salty and sweet, and that's just what you'll taste from the online shop Dipt, based in Marblehead. "It all started with the drizzled popcorn," says owner Kim Kramer, who grew up snacking on that sweet treat as a kid outside Cleveland. When she couldn't find something similar in her new North Shore home, she created it herself. e result is Dipt, which believes (and we'd have to agree) that "everything's better in choco- late." Dipt sells hand-dipped, drizzled, and decorated popcorn, pretzels, potato chips, cookies, marshmallows, and other treats. e Dipt trays, which come in four different sizes and feature an assortment of chocolate- covered goodies, are the most popular items. ere doesn't seem to be an occasion that one of these trays won't make better, especially since Dipt offers local pickup and delivery, plus shipping all over the United States. Dipt's creations also make popular party favors and corporate gifts, since Dipt can print ed- ible logos, names, dates, images, and other Dipt believes everything is better with chocolate.
