We got back up to Maine over Easter made a trip down memory lane, returning to Scarborough and driving past the old homestead. This left us very near the Len Libby retail outlet, one of the best hand made chocolate stores around. Part of our motivation was to see whether or not our daughter recalled visits here to gawk at the store’s major attraction, Lenny.

Lenny is a 1,700-pound chocolate moose sculpture! He was unveiled when we lived here and instantly became a local icon. A secondary reason for our return was simply to learn if Lenny was still around. Incredibly, Lenny had just celebrated his eleventh birthday (sealed off and preserved by ‘confectioner’s glaze’ per one of the attendants at the store). To celebrate his birthday, Lenny was even presented with a couple of chocolate bears to keep him company.

It was very cool to see our old friend had endured (Spencer didn’t remember him at all), as well as an opportunity to buy some of their wares! I can only vouch for their sugar-free offerings, but it is always high praise from anyone sampling their chocolates and you will be amazed at the variety of unique shapes they craft. So if you happen to be on Route 1 just south of Portland, making a stop at Len Libby’s to stock up on sugar and getting introduced to Lenny is a must!

Do they really have "hand made chocolate stores" back on the east coast? Seems that store would get licked to the point of collapse in no time flat! And I'd help do it! :)

A stop for some chocolate
We made our way further north and into Hew Hampshire next. We even got a semi decent picture of their welcome sign.  We made our way over a few very nice bridges and saw some very nice homes.&nb…Len Libby's Handmade Chocolates in Scarborough, Maine.  I had been told not to miss this stop by both…
Lenny the Chocolate Moose
Some people may know that Maine is full of moose, it seems one cannot drive 100 yards down the highways here and not see an "I brake for moose" bumpah stickah!  We take our moose very seriously …chocolate.  Lenny the moose is made of over 1700 pounds of chocolatey goodness!  His home is at Len Libby's Candy Shop in Scarborough
