So I decided to write about two of the yummiest places on the island instead.
My favorite is Chilmark Chocolates, which has some of the best candy I've ever tasted, bar none. The chocolates are homemade and come in so many varieties that it's hard to decide what to get to fill your box when you visit the store. In addition to being amazing candy makers, the owners of Chilmark Chocolates run a special program to employ mentally disabled Islanders and they use specially modified machinery to meet their employees' needs. They also sponsor a different Island non-profit organization each month, with portions of their proceeds going to that organization.
It's nice to be able to support good people who also make an extraordinary product.
Another yummy business is Mad Martha's Ice Cream. Mad Martha's has three cute ice cream parlors on the island and their ice cream is homemade. I've been going there since I was a kid and I've never had any ice cream there that wasn't wonderful.
It's safe to say that it's difficult to stick to a diet while on the Vineyard.
My A-Z of Martha's Vineyard theme is inspired by my book, The Ghosts of Aquinnah, which is set on the island. Click here for all the info on the book.
