Dolle's has the most innovative molded chocolate I have ever seen in a retail store. Their caramels can't be beaten. And the large nonpareils are as fun to eat as they are good!

Dolle's taffy comes in a wide-variety of shapes and natural flavors. It is always fresh (made right on the premises) and delicious!

Thank you so much for your kind review! You are right, we make our candy right on Wicomico Street and the Boardwalk! Maybe a little salt air is our secret to making delicious taffy?? :) Have a wonderful day!! More

A great candy store with quality candy. Better then Candy Kitchen by far. Great selection and chocolate covered taffy is the best.

We have visited Ocean City since the mid 1960's. The quality of there taffy and fudge has always been the best. Its always fresh, even in the off-season.
