  • Great selection of chocolate and candy, decently friendly staff (for Massachusetts), and really cool to see the candy makers hard at work over boiling vats of sugary goodness.  more »

  • Quaint spot with a lot of history built-in. Grab a truffle or just take in the sweet aromas
  • This quaint little shop is right across the street from the House of Seven Gables exhibit in Salem and takes you back to a time when confectioneries were less mass produced. It's a little on the small side so it is not easy to maneuver around the shop when there's a dozen or more people in there, but it does give you time to look closely over everything. I picked up some assorted chocolates and a licorice pipe, while my kids purchased root beer barrels, string licorice, and some chocolates shaped like seashells. You are going to pay a premium for these delights but it's worth it when you take that first bite.
  • I bought a pack of Black Jacks here after visiting the House of Seven Gables (it's right across the street). I love molasses, and these had a great, sweet, molasses flavor to them.
  • The chocolates are amazing! Very historic spot. If you are a tourist in Salem you should definently check it out!
  • Like others have said, it's a small, quaint shop that can only fit perhaps ten people. But, they offer quite a nice variety of sweets. They no longer make their candy on premises. They make their candy at a larger location on another town.
