Bandon is Oregon's cranberry capital, and for years these beautiful red berries were harvested from the bogs only to find relative obscurity. Some were crushed and filtered into fruit drinks. Others were bagged, frozen and enjoyed maybe a few times a year. There had to be a kinder fate; a way to enjoy their tangy taste year-round.Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Cranberry Sweets by using our Coos Bay online visit planner .
Finally, in 1962, Dorothy Johnson, a Bandon resident, invented a way to capture the cranberry's unique tang in a candy that leaves our competitors baffled and our tasteful customers coming back for more. My father, Clifford Shaw, purchased the recipe in 1974. Cranberry Sweets & More® was born.
In the decades since, we've developed literally hundreds of unique fruit candies and chocolates, relying on time-honored recipes and traditional candymaking methods. All our candies are still made by hand, in small batches, using only the finest natural ingredients.
If you're in the area, be sure to stop by our stores, where free samples of our products are always in good supply. We're located in Bandon's historic Old Town and in Coos Bay's Empire District.

Every time I head to the Oregon coast to visit my family, I make sure to stop by The Cranberry Sweets factory! The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The selection is a bit overwhelming, but not in a bad way. EVERYTHING has a sample to try! Be sure to ask for your senior or military and veteran discount!
Best candy store ever!!!! Tons of samples and choices! My favorite was the Key Lime Pie Candy and the Cranberry Sweets lotion bars! I tried cheddar cheese fudge too! So cool.
