2018 Chocolate

Editors’ Choice

Harbor Sweets, Salem Standout Qualities: A love of traditional chocolate making produces classics, like the Sweet Sloops—almond buttercrunch toffee covered with white chocolate, then hand-dipped in rich dark chocolate and crushed pecans—that have long been Harbor Sweets’ calling card. What’s Unique: Newer chocolate lines like Salt & Ayre bring more exotic flavors with ingredients like Thai ginger sea salt and chipotle salt. Small-batch Gather chocolates incorporate local honey while directing some of the profits toward honeybee protection. What’s New: Owner Phyllis LeBlanc bought area company Cocoa Santé last year, adding the organic and fair-traded line of hot cocoa mixes to her chocolate line. 85 Leavitt St., Salem, 800-243-2115,
