A whole lot of taffy and candy you may remember as a kid. The place could use a good cleaning. A bit dusty

Great candy shop with really sweet people. They were super friendly and accommodating as this annoying New Yorker took a ton of snapshots.

This is one of the most impressive candy stores we have ever seen- dozens upon dozens of barrels overflowing with all things weird, nostalgic and exotic. You'll find it hard to contain yourself so expect to walk out with a lot more than you anticipated.

All kinds, every which way! They have candy from when you were a kid to what they have now. Every kind of salt water taffy to hard candies and more. I was surprised to see that they had some things that I haven't seen since my grandpa gave them out when I was tiny. Go here just to see how... More

A great candy store, there was sooooo much candy in this place. The prices were a little high, but still a treat for both kids and adults

Bring your sweet tooth when you visit! Barrels of taffy, you can select the taffy flavor of your choice, so fresh and flavorful. They offer so many candies that we no longer see, but, bring back childhood memories. Then you can cap off your visit with a hand packed ice cream cone - oh, so good!
