2016 is the year of the caramel at Shane’s. We are pleased to offer Hibiscus-Ginger, Mango-Passion Fruit (un-dipped or coated in Dark Chocolate), and Berry-Basil (un-dipped or coated in White Chocolate).
A new seasonal delight, Banana Buttercreams are available in Dark and White Chocolate. In the late 19th century America took notice of the banana, and found it to be a delicacy to be savored. Being photographed eating bananas even became a fad!

This late 19th century, die-cut trade card for Smack’s, a New York purveyor of ice cream and confections, stands out in our collection as an interesting aspect of advertising history. We especially love the incongruity between the business name and the card’s delicate form. Visit Shane Confectionery to try our own unique botanical and tea-based confections.
Happy All Fool’s Day!
There was a fair maid of Lagoda.
Who went in to buy her soda.
She found it so fine,
That at last she’d had nine,
Which she said she feared might overload her.
