if you like taffy and candy then this is the place for you. We bought a lot of taffy and I tried a Jony bar which is a peanut butter filled rice krispie treat dipped in chocolate. Pretty amazing!

They had a large selection of sweets, specialty, jelly beans, taffy and old time candy. The carmels were amazing, the malt balls were okay, taffy was yummy. The kids had fun, it was spent but would go again.

Every time I come to Cannon Beach, this is a must stop place to go. They have a great selection of different kinds of taffy and you can even pick out what you would like and put it in you own small or large bag whatever you would like to bring home with you. It is nice also that you... More

So over priced compared to Seaside candy stores and the selection pales in comparison to the Buzz. We have found this placed so packed in the summer and we shake our heads as the short drive to Seaside would give these folks a better value and more choices.

A must-see when visiting Cannon Beach. The store has so many different flavors of taffy, and the prices are pretty good. With many available options, this is a good place for kids to try a lot of taffy flavors without putting a hurt on your wallet.

We love visiting candy stores on the Oregon Coast... it has a feeling of nostalgia. This candy store certainly fits the bill... with its pink and white striped exterior and the buckets of homemade salt water taffy, it completely takes you back to being a kid. They have a wonderful selection of candies, taffy and chocolates. Their taffy is really... More

We've been going to Cannon Beach for more years than we like to admit. We always stop at Bruce's Candy Kitchen. This year we were a little disappointed. The salt water taffy didn't seem as fresh as in the past, and the milk chocolate in both the caramels and the raisin clusters we bought was gritty, like the sugar hadn't... More

This is a great place to get your sugar fix. Salt water taffy (many, MANY flavours) caramel apples, multi-flavoured gummy bears, and other novelty items. Sadly lacking a true "chocolate" section. Fun to watch the taffy being made and free samples to top it off.

We went here on our trip to Cannon Beach. And I just have to say, They have the best Saltwater Taffy that is out there! Trust me, I have been to plenty of candy stores and they have the best! I personally would recommend the Root Beet and the Pomegranate flavors

Bruce's is an institution - been shopping there for many, many years. Fun place to visit and watch make the taffy. They enjoy explaining the what and why of taffy making. Free samples - lots of variety to purchase. Easy to locate at the far North end of Cannon Beach.
