About the Company:
Harbor Sweets founded by Ben Strohecker in 1973 and grown significantly. Harbor Sweets was recognized in 2011 and 2012 as one of the top 100 women-led businesses in Massachusetts.
History of Harbor Sweets: Harbor Sweets began over 40 years ago, Ben’s hobby to make the best chocolates in the world. He used a recipe out of the fanny farmer cookbook to make almond buttercrunch toffee. One day he ran out of the dark chocolate he was using to coat the toffee and he dipped the triangular pieces half in white chocolate and a half in dark chocolate. His son said they looked like sailboats, his wife said “Sweet Sloops” and Harbor Sweets set sail.
The company employs over 100 people and has several product lines such as its classics with original nautical designs of Sweet Sloops, sand dollars, and marblehead mints, its dark horse chocolates, a special equestrian themed line for horse enthusiasts and salt & ayre, a line of truffles and salted chocolates.
Sweet Sloops is the almond buttercrunch smothered in white chocolate with a splash of dark chocolate and crushed pecans.
Gather is a purpose-driven line of small-batch chocolates with local wildflower honey, inspired by the honeybee plight.
Cocoa Santé, a line of hot cocoa mixes made with organic cocoa and all natural ingredients, available in five rich and creamy flavors and responsibly sourced. They are noreaster, parisien, azteca, kashmir spice, and mocha.
Salt & ayre chocolates are inspired by flavor notes. Thai ginger, chai, Himalayan sea salt, caramel are the salts throughout the world, are used in these chocolates.
Harbor Sweet’s longevity is attributed to its ability to apply the simple age-old concept of the Golden Rule, “treat others with honor and respect as you yourself would want to be treated”.
