Best Ice Ball: Sweet Tooth Candies

One of Newport’s most beloved spots is Sweet Tooth Candies, and its striped red and white awning out front has been a welcome sight for young and old alike for decades. This regional gem is open year-round to keep locals and out-of-town visitors stocked up with handmade candies and ready-to-enjoy seasonal treats. In the summer, customers from near and far line up for ice balls (kind of like a Sno-Cone with the option to add ice cream); in the winter, caramel apples are in season and not to be missed. The shop is also known for its homemade buckeyes, opera creams, molasses chips and chocolate butter. Chocolate butter! Sweet Tooth Candies, 125 W. 11th St., Newport,
