Cabot's Candy in Provincetown Has Opened in Cambridge's Harvard Square
A Cape Cod candy shop that got its start nearly 90 years ago has quietly opened in one of the busiest parts of Cambridge.
A message sent from the place indicates that Cabot's Candy in Provincetown is now open on Mass. Ave. in Harvard Square, with the shop initially opening its doors sometime last week. Based on its original store on Commercial Street in the heart of Ptown, expect to see a variety of salt water taffy at the new shop, along with fudge, peanut brittle, popcorn, and more.
According to its Facebook page, the original Cabot's candy shop in Provincetown has been around since 1927, making it one of the oldest stores in town. It is located across from Town Hall and about a block south of the Pilgrim Monument.
The address for the new location of Cabot's Candy in Harvard Square is 1300 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA, 02138. The Facebook page for the new shop is at https://www.facebook.com/cabotscandycambridge while the website for the original store is at http://www.cabotscandy.com/
[August 14 update: A message from Cabot's indicates that their candy is actually being sold out of a jewelry shop and a clothing store in Cambridge; the post says that the owners of Zinnia Jewelry and Tula Boutique (both of which are in the same building and share an entrance) have decided to sell Cabot's candy instead so the clothes and jewelry have apparently been put aside and the candy is now in place. Cabot's also says that their grand opening party will take place tomorrow (Saturday, August 15).]
