We are a locally owned and family run business in Bangor, Maine.  With a history going back to the 1980's, shoppers have been visiting the store for over twenty years.  Initially starting out on 849 Stillwater Ave. in Bangor, as Sanborn's Fine Candies, the business has changed ownership and evolved over the years to become what it is today.

Specialty Sweets moved from 849 Stillwater Avenue to the the Christmas Tree Shops Plaza (36 Springer Dr.) in March of 2014.  This move doubled our retail space allowing us to offer an even larger selection while giving our customers an even more enjoyable shopping experience.  Our new space has plenty of parking and his handicap accessible!

We opened Specialty Sweets Downtown on 31 Main Street in August of 2016.  This additional location serves the downtown community with many of our most popular items.

If you haven't been in to our stores yet, we invite you to stop by for a free taste of our homemade fudge and our edible cookie dough.  These are just a couple of our offerings that are sure to sweeten your day.  Remember, "Your Sweet Tooth is Our Specialty!"

Our mission is to offer our customers the highest quality products, at reasonable prices, while providing unsurpassed customer service.  We invite you to come by our stores and have a wonderfully sweet experience!
