“Best hot fudge on the planet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is not your typical candy/ice cream shop! Don't get me wrong... the candy is delicious, the ice cream is delicious, but according to my wife ( and I happen to agree with her) the hot fudge is "to die for"! This is a cute little shop in historic downtown Salem, MA. It has a wonderful collection of unusual and hard to find gifts, different flavors of fudge, ice cream, and of course a few souvenirs of your trip to Salem. There are other candy stores and ice cream shops in Salem, but why bother with them when you can have the best at Maria's?
We live in Salem and never get desert at the restaurant when we eat out. We always save some room for our ice cream sundae at Maria's!

“Best fresh made almond joy ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stopped by for a scoop of their homemade almond Joy ice cream, We have a local place that makes it here in NY and it is nothing like Maria's, which is creamier and better quality. The shop is lovely and there is a specialty chocolate candy section, you can't help but buy something. Do go and have a look!
