I lived in Marblehead for 13 years and never missed buying all my chocolate goodies from this family business of homemade chocolates. I have since moved on to Vermont, Indiana and Idaho and have found no substitute. I still order my candy gifts from them.
I have been ordering candy from Stowaway Sweets for YEARS! 20 yrs ago I received my first pound of 'meltaways' as a gift and what can I say "I was hooked!" I've been sending it to family and friends ever sense. I've never been to the store (I live 2 hrs away) but receiving a pound in the mail would make anyone happy.
I have never been to Stowaway, but the chocolates that my company received for New Year's are maybe the best I've ever had! I'm usually disappointed in chocolates when I don't know what is filling them, but every one of these has been a pleasant surprise! Next time I'm in Marblehead, I'll have to stop by... although it might just be too tempting!
Try the meltaways!! You can thank me later! I grew up in Marblehead and have always had Stowaway Sweets around my parents house for every occassion. Now that I have my own family, I continue the tradition and have them shipped to me. They really are the very best quality, hand-made candies you can find.
I have been to Belgium, I have been to Switzerland and I can tell you for a fact that Stowaway Sweets in Marblehead Massachusetts has THE BEST chocolote you could ever imagine! Check it out for yourself if you are ever in Massachusetts. You won't regret it!
A friend of mine who lives near Swampscott took my sister and me to this place on a recent visit. I fell in love with their dark chocolate almond bark. I ended up buying boxes for family back home. I plan to order again soon, as I don't live near enough to drop in for another visit anytime soon!!
I have been getting candy from Stowaway Sweets since I was a toddler. Through girl scouts, watching it be made in the basement of the store, to an adult sampling it there. I have introduced my husband, my children and now my grand children, to what truly great candy is!! I now have it shipped to me as we no longer live in Marblehead, but it is just as good that way. Our family favorites are the melt-aways. But others are equally as good. The grounds of the house are lovely and the goldfish in pond, as you enter, have been there for as long as I can remember. If you are out for a ride, it is worth going to visit there first and then go around the corner to the ocean,the beautiful homes,boats and views from the ocean..Finish the candy and go back for more before you leave town...
There are few places in the world that are wonderful enough to receive the distinction 'best'. Stowaway Sweets truely is the most incredible chocolate. I remember going to the shop from the time I was a small child until now when I live all the way in California. My family gives this chocolate every year as Christmas gifts and if I ever need the perfect gift I know where to go. It also happens to give out the tastiest free samples you could ever try. You wont regret walking throught the gate with the iron weight passed the gorgeous landscaping to enter their small shop!
