“Yum”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Fun place to go for taffy, ice cream, or jelly belly. Lots of options and reasonable prices. Easy to get carried away.

“More flavors than you've ever seen”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The saltwater taffy flavor assortment is spectacular. Everywhere you look, there are tubes full of taffy. They have all the classic flavors, plus much more. Seriously, there's all sorts of varieties...fruity, minty, chocolaty, sour, spicy, buttery etc. It's not cheap, but the variety makes up for that.
Oh, then there's the JELLY BELLY varieties. SO MANY!!! Again, there are the classic Jelly Belly flavors, then the ones you have never heard of. So wonderful.
If that's not enough, they also have a massive selection of confectioneries made in-store.
The downside is the music. The "Willy Wonka" "Candyman" song plays over and over and over and over.

“170 flavors!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

The boyfriend wanted to check out all the choices and came away with over a pound of taffy in assorted flavors for about $8.
He was very happy & found lots of flavors you don't find anywhere else.
Downside is The Candyman Can song plays non stop in the store. Glad I don't work there.
The owner lets you spin a wheel for a chance at winning something. Even if you don't win, he still gives you a free taffy :)

“Salt Water taffy to die for”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

This place has a least 150 different kinds of taffy all are great- a few too hot -a few too sour but hey it's all in the taste buds for sure and of course you can try a piece for free- what's not to like.
