Fun candy shop that has been around a long time. They pull their own salt water taffy in the front of the store, free samples of the type being produced. Caramel corn and cheese corn too. Good stuff.

As soon as we walked in we were able to see taffy being freshly cut into pieces. I got a bunch of taffy and my girlfriend got several different kinds of gummi bear type candy.

Bruce's is a must visit when in Canon Beach. You won't be able to get out of the store without some of their delicious salt water toffee. The establishment draws you in with the sweet fragrances of fresh homemade candy.

I began going to Bruce's more than 20 years ago. At that time it was pretty small time. I had the opportunity to visit today after 6 years and it was as busy as ever. I purchased 8 different flavors of the salt water taffy for which they are known. Only 2 of the flavors have even a tiny bit... More

From the second you see it's stripped exterior to the squeaky screen door and that smell the unmistakable smell of from scratch taffy...The whole store has the look and feel of a movie set. If you're in the Cannon Beach area, you must stop here, grab some taffy and climb up to Clarks Point.

Have been coming to Bruce's Candy Kitchen since I was a kid. Now our kids insist on visiting each time we're in Cannon Beach... and I still enjoy it as much as I ever have. Fun to see taffy being made =)

Bruce's has been making outstanding chocolate dipped candies since 1963 (they say, I think it might have been since sometime in the 1950s), and the dark chocolate peanut clusters are not to be missed. Mounds of salty Spanish peanuts, dipped in sweet dark chocolate with a smoky note unique to Bruce's. Our chocolatier said their lead chocolate artist has been... More

Just loves all The Laffy Taffy flavors and that the first one was on them. Got two of each flavor so that my boyfriend and I can see which ones are favorite together. Absolutely adore the white chocolate popcorn it was a little naughty.
