The Candy Baron is a great place to be! They have a wide selection of candies and themed candies. The main attraction are the barrels and barrels of taffy flavors. Some of the candy is a bit pricey, but it's worth it.

Located in Pier 39 concourse and it's a treasure trove of sweet stuff! Lots of flavours for salt water taffy that you don't get in other places. Easy to get to by public Muni transit (F line runs past Pier 39).
