A Tale of Yum
2010Illness forces Lou Kelly to retire, and his son Peter takes over the shop.
"I have fond memories of the Yum Yum Shop when it was across the street. Tiny place. We would wait in line for fresh- from- the- oven White Mountain bread every time we came in to town from the island. One loaf to eat right away, another loaf to take home. My great aunt would treat us to a frosted gingerbread man once in a while. Loved the hermit bars too." "my dad and I used to take the boat over every sunday, at dawn, from Melvin village for donuts and pastries in the seventies. so sad!"
A campaign to resurrect Yum Yum Shop is covered by WMUR.
Yum Yum Shop ribbon cutting on July 2 attracts throngs of customers and the Yum Yum Shop is officially back in business, serving the greater Lakes Region with its favorite bakery items and ice cream.
