Ada's Variety Shop is a family-owned local candy shop that has been calling Riverside, Conn. its home since 1950. The store began when Ada Cantavero's parents bought the former post office on Riverside Avenue. Ada inherited the store from her parents and was an after-school staple for all of the local school children. When Ada passed in 2008 at 88 years old, she left the store in the care of Kelly Romaniello, her nephew. Kelly continued to keep the store alive and running to satisfy the local sweet tooth.
