For the kid who wants to be in a candy store....

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... read 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.

We have been going for many, many years to Bruce's. AWESOME. Love the atmosphere, lots of fun things to shop for, great taffy. Having a piece of taffy right now. Plenty of flavors and great quality. Don't get a few crabby reviews here. Same great place I have been visiting for many, many years. Highly, highly recommended.

We are clearly spoiled by our favorite coastal taffy shop in Lincoln City. Stopped here instead and were sadly disappointed by the favors. Fine if you buy it once a year, but doubt we'll visit again.

Shop here for candy and popcorn since 1990. Last two visits (Stormy Weather 2014 and Savor Cannon Beach March 2015) we were very disappointed. In past always bought the Salt water taffy for my staff back home. November trip I noticed the taffy I brought the staff lasted past day 1 or 2. Tried some myself to see what the... More

This is one of our favorite places to stop while in Cannon Beach! Our kids love the taffy, I love the milk chocolate sea salt caramels and my husband loves the fudge! We always stop in our first day in town and our last so we can take home a few yummy treats to enjoy. The staff is super friendly... More

An excellent stop in a fun city. Our granddaughter had a great time collecting almost some of everything. The saltwater taffy came home with us so we enjoyed our trip just a little longer! So fun to try all the different flavors.
