Fodor's Review

America's oldest independent retail candy store, opened by Swiss candy maker Conrad Maron in 1850, is thriving in its location near Rittenhouse Square. This family-run confectionery's specialties include chocolate-dipped fruits, truffles, sugar-free treats, and molded chocolates. Sweet tooth still not satisfied? Maron operates in the same space as a much-loved ice-cream parlor, Scoop de Ville. Choose from an extensive list of decadent toppings to create a custom-blended treat.
