Ice cream and hot fudge cone a must!

This candy shop is amazing! From there candy to ice cream to fudge. I went back twice in one day and then the next day went back one more time before leaving to go home. Staff was very sweet. If you are a candy/ice cream lover this is the place!

Super cute candy/ ice cream shop. Fun to loom around but you will leave with yummy goodies! Take a picture with the giant sundae and footman!

Good old fashion hot fudge sundays. I would have to say this is the best hot fudge on the North Shore. In the summer it is a great place to set and enjoy the people walking by. Large assortment of home made candy.

Always fun to stop by for some candy and to see Marias newest items for sale. Maria has a great mind for business. She's pretty much the only one in Salem who stays open past 6. If Salem businesses adopted her business motto they'd make a lot more money. People visiting want things to do at night.

We had read several reviews on Trip Advisor on how amazing the ice-creams sold here were and how it had to be tried to be believed – all I can say is they are right!!

Wow! This ice cream is homemade and incredibly tasty. They are open late which is a bonus in Salem where most places close early. I had the strawberry ice cream and I honestly have not ever had better than this. I have had a lot of ice cream in my life!! Check it out, I don't think you'll be disappointed.... More
