I came here since I had just finished eating lunch at Liberty Fish. Yes they do offer lots and lots of candy choices. I got a little sticker shock when... More

We were drawn here by the taffy being made in the front window. This place has every kind of treat you can imagine, including taffy, chocolates, caramel apples and caramel corn. The prices were about the same as the other candy stores in the area. There were a lot of people crowded inside, so I'm afraid I probably missed some... More

We started at the Wharf today. We went through all the shops then went back through the ones that we wanted to buy things. Stopping in Carousel Candy we purchased taffy made fresh. The taffy we bought is being sent to troops, the American Flag was on the taffy, Andy thought troops would enjoy.

I reviewed this shoppe a few years ago and can not believe that they don't have thousands of 5* reviews. I order their popcorn on line every few months and it has become a favorite Christmas stocking stuffer for friends & family. I ordered 12 bags at Christmas time. They offer fast and affordable shipping. Check out their web site.... More

On recent winter break, we visited this amazing candy store. This store had everything from smiling faces to ice cream to the best salt water taffy ever. This a great place for candy gift and family fun. This is a must see when visiting the fishermans wharf.

With its pink building on Fisherman's Wharf, Carousel candies is a good place to go for candy, candy apples, and ice cream. We have stopped by when visiting the Fisherman Wharf area of Monterey.

Great candy shop... a must to check out as you will leave with something sweet. We could not resist their ice cream and wow it was quite good and the flavours were amazing. It was a little pricey, but it's delicious!
