Just in time for festival season, Caramel Ann makes its debut this weekend at 465 Center St., Lewiston.
Owner Sandra Geracci says her store will offer homemade treats, including cotton candy, walk-away sundaes, popcorn, caramel apple chips and, of course, caramel corn.
"I figured it would be a good fit for all the festivals and the stuff they have down here (in the village)," Geracci says. "I'm very excited; I think it's going to do quite well."
Geracci (pictured) says her recipes are family secrets honed both at Lake George and during her stint as a vendor along Old Falls Street.
One particular item she's proud to offer is cannoli cones. The dessert is like a traditional cannoli, but instead of a small shell, the ricotta is poured into a sugar cone and topped with sprinkles.
"It's a little something different," Geracci says.
In the future, she hopes to add chocolate products and maybe even fudge.
Caramel Ann's store hours are tentatively set for noon to 8 p.m., with expanded hours during special events.
