Small shop in Salem offers a variety of tastes chocholates which makes for a worthwhile trip for candy aficionados. It's a little pricey and I was disappointed to be charged $2 extra for pre-wrapped boxes of chocolates. Definitely worth a look though.

We discovered Harbor Sweets while living in Boston. Now every trip to the area from Chicago we go there with whoever we are visiting. Their dark chocolate is superb & the varieties unique. Staff always has a tray of samples. Take advantage especially if you are not familiar. Orders available online & mail order. There is no place like it!

Went with friends who were getting holiday gifts. Nice that they have samples, the chocolates are delicious but pricy. Packaging is good, makes a wonderful gift. It is a chocolate shop, not a restaurant.

Hi guys! This place is enlisted as one of the "must visit places" in Salem. Their bestseller includes the sailboat shaped chocolate treat (you can nibble on a sample piece, just before purchasing) alongside the new variety of dark chocolates they offer. They generally taste like almond rochas (is that woth an h or without one, cant remember) but that... More

We went to the Harbor Sweet factory store to pick us some of our favorites. We told ourselves we would eat them slowly enough to justify dealing with traffic in Salem in October. It was nice to step into the cool, chocolatey atmosphere. There are samples. When we went they had samples of a new line sweetened with honey called... More

Harbor Sweets offers unique shaped candies, sloops and seashells just to name a few. Harbor Sweets also has a large variety of quality candy to choose from and can be mailed to out of state lacations.

You walk into the chicolate factory itself and see the candies being made. And, upon entering, a staff person offers you a tray of samples, you pick from!

Call ahead to see whether they are running tours of the chocolate factory while you are there (usually Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 11). If not, you may still be able to see some of the action from the open gallery shop. The shop provides free samples of their various delicious chocolate confections, and there are always seasonal packages for taking... More

Great chocolate and unusual stock. The sea salted carmels are to die for! I can't visit without getting at least something from there.

These chocolates are not only delicious but beautiful, too. The molds include sail boats, sand dollars, horse heads, and starfish. I had taken the tour before, and it was great fun, with lots of samples. You can mail-order their products, but it's more fun to visit the shop. It's off the beaten path a bit.
