Born in 1917, Frederick Hebert purchased a copper kettle, knife, thermometer, table, marble slab and stove for eleven dollars. For thirty years, he developed and manufactured candies, selling them to small neighborhood stores throughout Central Massachusetts.
Chocolate is the main theme here. Candy is everywhere and you might want to leave the kids at home for this one, because they are going to go ga-ga over the number of candy and toys to choose from. The chocolate is good, I wouldn't say it's the best ever. But the experience is fun. The hardest part is choosing while staying in budget.
The Hebert Candy Mansion is an institution. There's shopping for candy, an ice cream parlor (make your own sundaes), and seasonal activities. Santa and the Easter Bunny make annual appearances. You can have birthday parties there, too. So much more than just a candy store.
