Be careful in the "off season". I was there this past weekend and the very expensive caramels that I bought $11.00 for 1/2/lb. were stale to the point that the caramel had crystallized. Will not return and would not recommend this shop.

The smells that waft from the open door of this place are enough to throw any dieter into a tizzy of excitement! Haha!! Always a nice variety... always a 'special deal'... always samples to try... always a 'must stop' whenever we visit Cape May!

Okay, the draw for so many patrons is the employee standing outside the store, hawking a free piece of fudge. Do go in, whether or not you like fudge. I always buy a box of taffy (or something) for my co-workers and am enchanted by...More
