Sometimes All That Wandering Can Be a Sweet Thing

The road goes ever on and on ...

Last week I had occasion to make a trip back up to Salem, Massachusetts (where most of you seem to think I should just go ahead and move to but then where would my "Go To" place be??) and while I was there I had the chance to make a visit to Ye Olde Pepper Companie - an unassuming little building on Derby Street directly across from the House of the Seven Gables.

Ye Olde Pepper Companie at 122 Derby Street, Salem, Massachusetts

It might not look like much from the outside but once you pass through that door you become like a kid in a candy shoppe because that's exactly what it is run by America's oldest candy company as a matter of fact!  I'm not going to tempt you with all of the chocolaty and sugary goodness to be found at Ye Olde Pepper Companie in this post but if you'd like to pop over to The Distracted Wanderer I certainly will as I show you around inside and introduce you to America's oldest produced candy - the Salem Gibralter.

So what are you waiting for?  You're not going to gain any weight just looking! Honest!


  1. Just looking? You mean you don't have taste-o-vision? Bummer...

  2. Now that's what I'm talking about. A calorie-less journey.
    I'll be right there.

  3. HA! I bet I could find away....blimping up .................

  4. I like the name of the street that it's on! And the name of the shoppe intrigues me. Pepper?


Thanks for visiting!
