For last 2 years, I have stopped by Bruce's & this year was just as great. I will be making another trip before we move to Alaska. The selection of taffy & jelly beans is the best that I've seen in a long time.

This place is great. We could watch them through the window in the shop making salt water taffy. They have a vast selection of all different types of candy. The store is very well decorated and is a fixture in the community.

Love watching the taffy pulling in a action! Nice to know it is actually made there. Great flavors to the taffy. Our favorite was mango, lemon and sour apple. Small shop so it can be hard to move around, that's ok the taffy is worth it!

Best, sweet candy shop in Cannon Beach! You can watch them make fresh salt water taffy, and then sample it! Amazing home made chocolates, and a huge gummy selection that my boys love. A must visit every time we visit the beach.

Bruce's has always been a favorite of one of my "go to" chocolates. Alas, this last visit I was shocked when my pound of chocolates totalled up to $28. It used to be $22 (maybe $24?). A large increase to $28 since last November is beyond my comfort level and, sadly, there will be no more purchases at Bruce's for... More

Bruce's Candy Kitchen is an institution in Cannon Beach. They have a large variety of good candy. My personal favorite are the truffle mints. Just great!

Bruce's Candy Kitchen is the real deal. They make their taffy on site, and though there are a nice selection of flavors, they don't make so many that the taffy has a chance to get stale. If you are lucky, they'll be making taffy, or wrapping it in the old taffy-wrapping machine in their open kitchen. You can view from... More

They got all kinds of sweets and candies and pops to send you further down the road to diabetes or worse. A whole lotta fun.

There candy is always so fresh and a great variety. You can also find some "old" time candy that is hard to find. We always stop here

While visiting Cannon Beach, this store came highly recommended by many people in the area and after one visit we could see why! Their treats are scrumptious! We bought a handful of things during our first visit and once we discovered our favorites we went back on another day and bought more to bring home with us. Our favorites were:... More
