Cottage of Sweets No trip down Ocean Ave in Carmel is complete without a stop at the Cottage of Sweets. I recommend the fudge if you like chocolate. They also pride themselves on their licorace.Their collection include licorices from Australia, Finland, Germany, Holland, England, Italy and the USA. It includes soft, hard, chewy, sweet, bitter, salty and numerous different mixes. AND it smells sooo good in there.
