  • Best salt water taffy I’ve had. Great texture, soft and flavorful, without being too sticky. This place has a large selection of flavors, and a lot of times you can actually watch the candy maker making the candy. They also have fudge, popcorn, and a variety of chocolate candies, including sea foam. Definitely give them a try when you’re in Depoe Bay.
  • Bianca was super helpful! Very knowledgeable, kind, and gave great suggestions on what to get. Excellent chocolate, taffy, and candy!! Will definitely be back!!
