About Us

Goodies by the Sea was a family owned business established in 2001 by Alex and Kristen Lanio.  We decided to open a candy business in Newport, RI based on an idea of making the Best Gourmet Chocolates and Caramels.   We also wanted to make unique chocolate confections using the freshest of ingredients.  Try our "sweetest" Newport Lobster, Our Newport Sailboat, or a Newport Welcome Pineapple.  Over the years we have become a Specialty Toy and Game store. We made the difficult decision to close Newport location in 2013 to put all our energy in the Texas Area.

Goodies Texas,  is our current location opened in Historic Downtown McKinney, TX.  Here you will find all our traditional Chocolates that we make.  We also make our Fudge here along with different Brittles and Our Famed Caramels and Toffees. 

Lanio's Candies is our brand of confections made right here at our store. We only use the finest ingredients. Our handmade chocolates are made fresh in our kitchen on a daily basis. When you visit our store, you can smell the aroma of chocolate all around you as you watch us make the chocolates, truffles, brittles, pralines, fudge, and much more. Our Chocolate Mold collection is the largest in the area and continually is growing.

Focus Photo Texas is up and running now.  We sell 35mm and medium format cameras and film.  Professional Darkroom services are available now, and film camera and darkroom classes will be coming soon..  Shoot Film and Megapixels.

Thank You
