These Maine Needhams are made by Haven’s Candies in Scarborough, Maine. If you want to experience a well-kept local secret, look no further. Each box contains over half a pound of this traditional Maine favorite, made with shredded coconut and coated in our creamy milk chocolate or rich dark chocolate. They are the perfect taste of Maine to give to someone from away. Or keep them all for yourself as a treat. One will do the trick…. if you can help going back for more ;)Herbert Haven founded Haven’s Candies in 1915, after following his sweetheart from Boston to Portland. They courted and married, and soon Herbert and his new wife were handcrafting candies in their kitchen and selling them from the front parlor of their house on Forest Avenue.
As the son of skilled candy makers, Herbert brought both premium quality and creative originality to his products. Over the years many confectioners have come and gone in Maine, but few have stood the test of time like Haven’s.
Today, Haven’s continues to thrive by sticking to its roots. They still handcraft the candies using traditional methods, the finest ingredients and a commitment to superior quality. And we here at Lisa-Marie’s can personally vouch for that.
