This was our first visit to Van Holten's Chocolates. Their candy selection is huge and don't miss their bakery section. Salt water taffy is soft and flavorful, with MANY choices. Will definitely be going back.

This place is amazing and a little bit overwhelming. There are so many options you don't know where to look first plus they have non-chocolate options too. The fudge is amazing with so many choices you may need to get 2lbs to try them all.

Van Holten's Sweet Shop is located in the Casino Pier Arcade Building. Walking in the door you can smell the popcorn cooking. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Sweets here are very good. Service here is very good.
