It is very tight in this store if you go during the crowded Halloween time. GO EARLY IN THE DAY! The candy is worth it !
Eyed this on our walk to The House of Seven Gables and put that on the list to stop in on our way back. Not a lot of room, but very well laid out to make the best of the space they have! Lots and lots of homemade chocolates and fudges. A wonderful place to find the "hard to find"... More
Cute little shop right down the street from Morning Glory Bed & Breakfast and House of the Seven Gables (two other excellent places to check out during a visit). The candy is fantastic! I especially enjoyed the fudge and the chocolate-covered crackers, but everything we had was great. Try the Blackjacks, one of the candies they're known for and one... More
Nice little stop, some interesting candies here. Oldest candy company in America! Lots of canies I've never heard of that were probably popular during Salem's prosperous maritime days.
Right across the street from the House of the Seven Gables you will find this national treasure! This is the first and oldest candy company in the country. Had it not been for a tourbus driver, Bob, who happened to have a tour there, we probably would not have tried the Blackjack candy! It is incredible! We bought two packages... More
A delectable selection of candies, hand-dipped chocolates, fudge and rare olde-tyme favorites. However, other than a few pieces of candy making equipment and some chocolate moulds, we seem to miss any display(s), tours or story boards of historical significance or interest...which for a foodie at what is supposed to be America's oldest candy store was disappointing.
I visit the store often as it sells incredible fudge, chocolates & assorted other sweets. The staff are wonderfully knowledgeable & friendly! The items they sell taste better than any commercial sweets you will find within Massachusetts
What a concept! When you visit this historic candy shop, you can feel like getting your vacation sugar fix is educational! This tiny shop has plenty of historic memorabilia and a huge variety of candy--both chocolate and otherwise. You'll want to try everything. We loved the chocolate covered espresso beans and chocolate covered roasted salted almonds. I wish we could... More
Stepping through Ye Olde Pepper's door was like taking a trip back to the 1800s. They sell fudge, brittle, taffy, chocolates (try their famous turtles!) and old fashioned hard candies. They also still make Gibralters, which I learned was the first candy commercially sold in America. My favourites were the Black Jacks and the pomegranate taffy! YUM! Talk to the... More
I venture up to Salem a few times a year and one is right before Halloween which is not the best time to be in Salem since every tourist in the world descends on the town during the month of October. However, it is worth braving the crowds and traffic to come to Ye Olde Pepper Companie and purchase a... More
