Who needs Baskin & Robbins when there's Granite City Candy Shoppe & Ice Cream in Concord, N.H.? If I'm anywhere near downtown, I make a beeline to the double storefront on Warren Street (just off Main) for a homemade cool treat. With 30 flavors that change seasonally, the hardest decision is making a choice. Should it be the California Pistachio, Indian Pudding, Coconut Snowflake, Black Raspberry Chip, Georgia Peach or a chocolate concoction? Or should it be a sundae or frappe? On a recent visit, it's two kinder scoops of Peanut Butter Cup, a vanilla ice cream loaded with mini cups of chocolate-covered peanut butter ($3.75). Granite City, run by the same family since 1927, is also the place for all kinds of handmade chocolates and other candy and nuts treats.
Granite City Candy Shoppe & Ice Cream, 13 Warren St., Concord, N.H. 603-225-2591.
