    Last year, if you’d asked me to describe the type of shops we have in Cape May, I would’ve said they’re largely geared toward our summer visitors: t-shirt shops, souvenir shops with “Cape May” emblazoned on knick-knacks, the quintessential surf shops.

    Philadelphia’s celebrity meteorologist (seriously, he has over 100k Facebook followers) Adam Joseph and Melissa Magee from Channel 6 visited Cape May yesterday for their At the Shore segment.

    If you haven’t been there yet, be sure to check out Cape May Peanut Butter Co. the next time you’re in town. In addition to freshly ground nut butters (I love the Honey Roasted Peanut and Sunflower), they also make a classic PBJ, smoothies, and some of the best peanut butter cookies I’ve ever had. […]
