This is an old time candy shoppe serving up a healthy dose of nostalgia. Fresh Made salt water taffy is the star of the show but this store is jammed with all the favorites. The taffy is made on site and in plain view. Neat...More

This is such a fun place to visit, with great merchandise and free samples of fudge! Their macaroons are the best, their almond cookies are delish and the gelato next door is fabulous. Dont bypass this place!
