We love fall - and we'll love the day we open our new retail shop at 24 Common Street in downtown Waterville, Maine to the public this September! We are putting the finishing touches on the retail space, which we've built out from scratch (our first time, be gentle) and once we have our i's dotted and t's crossed, will open our doors for business six days a week, Monday through Friday from noon to 6:00pm. The good news is we are now open for online and wholesale orders as our kitchens are up and running - so you can get our goodies shipped to you anywhere in the Continental USA, or you can arrange to pick them up at our shop on 24 Common Street in Waterville if you're local or have a local connection. 

Questions? Give us a call at 207-209-0551 or shoot us an email at Once we open our doors for retail sales we'll shout it to the world, never you fear!

Well shucks - here it is the last day of our Mother's Day pop-up and we're just getting the chance to blog now. Goodness it has been busy! As we prepare for our last sales day in our kitchen -- we'll be working on our new space in the aptly numbered suite #207 in a few weeks -- we're planning on shutting down for a few weeks as we work on the new space. Exciting times for Christopher Hastings Confections, we'll update you on the progress as we go!

Announcing Big Plans for the Future of Christopher Hastings Confections

Posted on March 04, 2018 by Mark Simpson | 0 comments

Have you read the news - or seen the news? We're expanding - because you demanded it. In May 2018 we plan on opening up our new retail experience - at 18 Common Street Suite 207 in downtown Waterville. (Basically right across the hall.) Not only is this new space twice the size, we'll be open six days a week to help you satisfy your chocolate cravings. We know, we know - that's so long to wait. But trust us, it's not too long at all, we'll be there before you know it! 

In the meantime, perhaps you can busy yourself by looking at our Easter menu?

Welcome Autumn - and our new fall menu!

Posted on September 18, 2017 by Mark Simpson | 0 comments

Gosh, what a lovely summer. Thank goodness it's over!

You see, we chocolatiers love a nice warm day, but our chocolate? Not so much! That's why we're a little quiet in the summer months...consider it a hibernation of sorts. But now that the cooler weather is upon us, our commercial kitchen in downtown Waterville is back in business, producing treats from our new autumn menu as well as those fan favorite items we never stop making.

Another reason we love autumn - our local farmers are crazy with the tasty produce! Apples from The Apple Farm in Fairfield keep us rolling in the fresh applesauce - we make our own for our Apple Jack Caramels, don't you know? And it's also pumpkin season -- so of course we're making our favorite pumpkin-riffic confections using good ol' organic pumpkin goodness, sourced right here in Maine!

Autumn also means you'll be seeing more of us! We've started posting our special autumn Pop-Up Events and seasonal hours on our Facebook Page. Check it out to see where we'll be during Maine Craft Weekend, Colby College Homecoming Weekend and when we'll be open this fall.

Like pumpkin? You will LOVE our Pumpkin Crack - a brittle/toffee hybrid that delights the tongue and inspires autumn adventures!

Looking for a perfect holiday hostess gift, housewarming present or gift? Check out our Autumn Harvest Bonbon assortment, it sure is a sweet gift made with plenty of the Maine ingredients you know, love and remember from your childhood!

Not seeing something you want? Just give us a call or shoot us an email, with enough time we'd be happy to whip up your heart's fancy!

Ah spring - or is it summer? You decide!

Posted on June 24, 2017 by Nate Towne | 0 comments

June in Maine is a tricky month - you go from 40 degrees to 90 in the span of a few hours! We're offering some fabulous spring and summer flavors in 2017, including our new S'more Bonbons made with Maine honey, our Buttermint Bonbons (just like those old-timer mints you used to get at your favorite diner), and Wild Maine Blueberry Cobbler just to name a few. Be sure to check out our "What's in the Box" page to see all of our seasonal and year-round flavors. If you have a suggestion for a new spring/summer flavor, don't be shy - tell us what you're looking for and you never know, we might add it to the menu. Remember that chocolate and the heat do not get along very well - in the summer there is an extra 'heat shipping' fee to cover the cost of the cooling packs and extra packaging we use to make sure each and every confection arrives in pristine condition at your doorstep. If you have any questions about our flavors or shipping, don't be shy - ask away!

Sweets for your Sweetie? It must be Valentine's Day!

Posted on January 16, 2017 by Mark Simpson | 0 comments

We just LOVE love. We truly do! This is why Valentine's Day has always been special to us, long before we started selling our confections. When we were little, we were all about the candy. Now that we're wearing our Big Boy Pants, we must say there is something divine about February chocolate...warms the heart! 

Take a peek at our Valentine's Day 2017 Collection - we hope you like what you see. If not, feel free to drop us an email or give us a call, custom confections are a speciality! 

Our retail store will be open from January 31st through February 14th at 18 Common Street - Second Floor - in downtown Waterville across from City Hall/The Opera House. So drop on by if you're in town!
