I have visited Cabot's almost every summer of my life. It is a highlight of a visit to the Cape. It is a delightful candy shop with excellent customer service. The draw for me is always the taffy -- for me all other taffies pale in comparison. It is just the right texture, just the right sweetness (although I have quite a sweet tooth) and a wide variety of flavors. It is our tradition for everyone to take a paper bag upon entering the shop and spend about 10 minutes selecting pieces from the array. My favorites are root beer, lemon-lime, cinnamon (spicy!) and the wonderful vanilla. The fruity flavors are all great and there is always something unusual to try. We love when taffy is being made while we're there because it is fun to watch. I can't speak to the fudge because I am so single minded about the taffy. They do also have a selection of other candies -- colorful lollipops, necco wafers, many retro items.
We were advised by a friend to try the shop across the street instead, so we stopped in and each got a free sample. We found it hard to chew and lacking the flavors at Cabots, so we scuttled right back across the street where we belong!
