A Sweet Tradition

The Chocolate Shell has a long history of bringing smiles to others with our delicious treats. Since 1980 we have been a staple of sweetness for local residents and visitors of Old Lyme alike. We have helped others celebrate so many occasions, weddings, & so many major milestones. We love what we do - and we are proud to be "The Sweetest Shop in Town!"

About The Owner

Lizzy McCarthy

The Chocolate Shell has been a staple in Old Lyme for quite a while now. It has also been a staple in my life. Growing up, I made so many memories here. As the biggest candy fan ever, I can say that it is truly a dream come true to be here and continue the legacy of the sweetest shop in town!
