Home of the World’s Longest Candy Counter, a visit to Chutters is a trip to Candyland where the air is delicious with the mouth-watering scents of candy and fresh-made fudge. Chutters has something for candy lovers young and old in a lively, fun-filled atmosphere.
A presence on Littleton’s Main Street since the late 1800s, Chutters is a not-to-be-missed destination for visitors and local residents alike. First-time visitors will be enchanted by all the assortments and excited to fill their bags with many favorites. Locals drop by regularly to pick up a pound of Chutters’ famous fudge, or to purchase goodie bags and favors for parties, weddings, holidays, and other special occasions.
Chutters is named for its original owner, Frederick George Chutter, a Congregational minister who came to Littleton to preach, but instead resigned his ministry for the dry goods business, eventually becoming a well-loved and prominent member of the community. A brochure from the era claims, “Mr. Chutter is a warm-hearted, cordial, and enthusiastic man, of optimistic temperament, and much interested in the welfare of Littleton.” More than 100 years later, the shop retains his name and the hospitality for which Chutter’s General Store was renowned, and is still resonating throughout this delightful shop today.
The longest counter of its kind anywhere, the Chutters candy counter runs the entire length of the store. An impressive 112 feet of gleaming glass jars filled with brightly colored candy ranging from yesterday’s favorites and hard-to-find flavors, to the best of today’s most sought-after treats.
