The staff here are so friendly! We are not from this area and just heard about it so we stopped in for a piece of candy. So glad we did. We highly recommend!

I was lucky enough to work in a family-owned candy shop over 100 years old (Wilmington, DE) and similar to Marie’s. I know when care is given to the candy. Upon entering Marie’s, you are drawn into the beauty of the store. The more you...look, the more products you see, even though the store is not large. Care is given to decorate in the shop, making the chocolates look presentable and inviting in their packaging, and making sure the homemade pieces as well as the truffles are beautifully cupped. I have been to popular candy stores at beaches near me where the more expensive chocolates are simply stacked on each other, only to scratch and look shoddy. Very sad. Marie’s also offers traditional popular candies such as Swedish fish or licorice. Some candies are packaged in mugs, bpresented as part of a pencil/pen gift set, etc. I also noticed that seconds were available which shows me that they do not like to waste. There was nothing wrong with the seconds except small blemishes. What I liked best was that I could see through the bags so that I knew what I was getting. I was able to identify most of the pieces because they had similar markings to those I had learned. The employees were lovely and very helpful, and the candy is made on the premises. The one thing that I don’t like about Maria’s is that I CAN’T taste the flavor of chocolate in the milk chocolate. Others who live near me agree to the point where we think it could be a regional preference. The texture is just right and they are sweet enough, but I am experiencing texture and no chocolate flavor. I have had Marie’s many times through gifts: one pound boxes, turtles, chocolate covered potato chips, bacon, etc. and it’s the same idea of not having the chocolate speak through the confection. I don’t really understand why this is. I’m wondering if Ohio prefers sweet whereas the mid-Atlantic area leans heavier on the chocolate. On my first trip to the store I was able to choose some dark chocolate to sample it. It was one of the better dark chocolates. The only dark variety I eat is the one from our 100 year old store in my native town, but I found Marie’s to be comparable. I’m not a dark chocolate lover, but this is different. When it is homemade, you can’t compare it to the finer over the shelf brands. They just don’t stand up to the homemade stuff!More

Hi Cathy! Thank you for your kind words about our displays and the care we take with our chocolates! Your comments about chocolate flavor are very interesting. You're right, there are many different types of chocolate and sometimes one type is more popular by region....More

I found Marie's Candies by accident, on my way up north. I captured many historical markers on my way, but stopped for a sweet treat. The interior is decorated for the upcoming spooky holiday. Very quaint indeed. The staff were quite friendly. I must say...the dark chocolate amorretto pecans are to die for. I highly recommend this place!More

Grew up loving these homemade chocolates. It is the best candy I’ve ever had, and I have tasted some very good candy from all over the United States, and from Canada. It’s the quality of the ingredients, and that everything is still made by hand,...that makes it so delicious!More

Just stepping inside is a treat - the scent & the sights. Marie's makes some of the finest chocolate I've ever eaten. It is so difficult to pick out which pieces I want - I always want some of everything! The chocolate is high quality...with no parafin, so bring along a cooler if the weather is warm. So good!More

Have loved this candy store since our father used to take us when we lived at home. Quality, friendliness are exceptional! Everyone should try the Mac O Chee creams they are the best, they do have a sample for you of one of their chocolates...when you walk in the door. Lot of chocolate gift items and other types of candy.More

We visit in route to Ski Mad River Mountain, and my wife requests Dark Chocolate Tur´Kins. Marie’s delights in seasonal decorations, and the Valentine display is very pleasant. Marie’s chocolates reminds us of our experiences in Brussels, Belgium. Great chocolates and a great staff –...we recommend.More
