After strolling around Salem, we were looking for something sweet and came across Maria's Sweet Somethings. They hand-dip their waffle cones into chocolate sauce and then put sprinkles on top. They also have frozen yogurt and a good variety of ice cream flavors. Service was great. We didn't feel rushed and we all enjoyed a nice treat.

I loved the decor with the orange lights and the ice cream was very good (my small Milky Way ice cream was huge). Unsolicited suggestion: little pre-wrapped chocolate witches in bags like the chocolate fish I saw in the store, and other witchy candy/cookies and ghosts that are wrapped and ready to go. I was looking everywhere for those as... More

Stopped for an ice cream. Nothing special really except the servers. Very nice. Not sure what kind of ice cream it was but I've had better and worse.

After a long day of walking and walking in Salem, we decided we needed a treat! We stopped in Maria's. I ordered a hot fudge sundae and the very nice young lady who made it, knew how! When you make a sundae, you put some topping in the bottom, then put the ice cream, then more topping. She didn't just... More

They have delightful and delicious chocolates in the lower section of the store, with ice cream and special hot chocolates in the upper store. The location is great. For a perfect day, go during the farmer's market, have lunch at the Lobster Shack, and dessert at Maria's

Maria's is like stepping back in time. There's a candy shop in the front and ice cream in the back and all kinds of kitschy memorabilia all around. I tried the blackberry truffles and they were just okay, but the sea salt caramel truffles were creamy and delicious. The ice cream is from Richardson's, which is a nearby dairy farm.... More

I stopped in here for ice cream and saw that they had a nice display of candy. Soon as I saw the caramel sea salt truffles I knew I was going to have to try one. I so wished I bought more! They were HUGE truffles and were sssooo good. Their ice cream was also very good!
