Seaside's Own Willy Wonka, and a forest of taffy columns!

1. There are a LOT of taffy flavors here, and I mean a LOT. I think probably 100 or so? 2. The "candyman" (it was obvious who he was when we came in) is gregarious... read more

Wanted to get my hubby something from my trip and thought for sure, out of 170 flavors, they would have his favorite (spearmint).... they did not. I got an assortment of other flavors I thought he might like. Alas, they just don't have much flavor at all! He tried one of each and had the same report: blase' and not... More

Great selection of taffy and ice cream, but some of our pieces were rock hard and didn't taste very good. I'd try the ice cream next time. Too expensive to break a tooth on expensive taffy

The "candyman" (it was obvious who he was when we came in) is gregarious, friendly, and reminiscent of the good parts of Willy Wonka (not the freaky boat tunnel and Oompa Loompa parts.) He got everyone to spin the... More

We loved the selection of Taffy, it was so hard to narrow down our selection. It was great that they let us try some of the taffy so we knew we were getting flavours we would enjoy. Not a taffy fan? Don't worry, there are lots of other candy to satisfy your sweet tooth!!!

We got a bunch of taffy. Husband says it was great. I loved the horchata flavored ice cream I got. We will grab more ice cream tomorrow :)

Wow! Great staff, very welcoming and helpful! What can you say when you have 150 flavors of taffy! Every flavor you could think of. Not to mention loads of other sweets to choose from.

We were just in Cannon Beach and we drove the extra 6 miles...Why? Best Selection and Best price. The owner is always handing out Taffy on the street...and the selection at this place is PURE INSANITY. 200 plus choices. I always get Peanut Butter...and then it is on and on. This is where you can get the best Taffy....at 1/2... More

HUGE selection of taffy and very reasonably priced. I had to stop myself (eventually) because of the wide variety of flavors

As soon as you walk-in, you find the largest assortment of Salt-water Taffy - over 250 choices. In addition, excellent ice cream

The taffy was great. We have a nut allergy kid, so they were really helpful with answering questions. Also, we got ice cream and the guy was so great with the kids. He also was very careful washing utensils (because of allergy). My son dropped his cone and he immediately rushed over with a new one. He turned a sad... More
