America’s Oldest Candy Company, Ye Old Pepper Candy Companie, Has Been Around Since 1806 In Massachusetts

Whether you’re a child or an adult, a trip to a candy store is always such a treat…literally! With rows, aisles, and display cases just filled to the brim with candy, chocolate, fudge, and saltwater taffy (among other sugary treats), candy stores have a way of bringing out the kid in us no matter what the age. In a state with as much history as Massachusetts, it may be unsurprising that the oldest candy company in the country is here, right in the heart of Salem.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
