America’s oldest candy company is also one of its best, thanks to a charming and decadent mix of old and new confectionary creations. At this cozy sweetshop, you’ll find old-fashioned New England classics, like Salem Gibralters and blackstrap molasses Black Jack sticks, alongside elegant turtles, truffles, toffees, and more.
