My good graces the chocolate covered crackers are to die for.I have had better truffles but these are still very good.They have a good selection fit into a tiny shop.

“Great Chocolates”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Harbor Sweets Chocolates are just delicious. We are so fortunate to have the factory in Salem. You can watch them making the sweets. And you certainly get to sample many of the treats before you purchase. Great gifts.

“How Sweet It Is in Salem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

One of Salem's real hidden gems -- and a local business, to boot -- can be found on Leavitt Street, just a few blocks outside the center of downtown. Harbor Sweets makes its famous candies right here in town using only the freshest ingredients and they keep improving their line. Imagine great tasting sugar-free chocolates . . . chocolates featuring the latest salt craze . . . and the famous mints and Sweet Sloops that we've known for years. A great place for a corporate event, too. Go and get a free sample! You won't leave empty handed!

“The best chocolate on the North Shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

I've been shopping at Harbor Sweets for years. Each time I have to take a bit of Salem to anyone, anywhere (even overseas), I take Harbor Sweets. It's a little gem right off the downtown area. Easy to find and plenty of parking. If you go during the morning, you will probably catch the crew hand making and packaging all that wonderful chocolate. You can stand and watch to your heart's content; standing there inhaling an ethereal aroma.
What can I say? Oh, and they offer you a sample. All kinds and all sizes to fit all budgets. Watch out; you'll buy more than you think!

“family favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

My family has given and received Harbor Sweets every Christmas for as long as I can remember. It's my absolute favorite candy and has never once been a disappointment. The gift assortments are always a crowd pleaser. I just tried their sloop ice cream topping and caramel sauce, and both were great.
