I grew up coming to Estes Park every summer as a kid, and when I finally made it back as an adult with my husband, I was worried that it might have changed too much. When I saw the Taffy Shop, with its original taffy pulling machine in the window and the ornate white wrought iron decorations, I was instantly relieved and fascinated all over again by this charming and delicious gem of a store. The flavors and quality of the taffy is unbeatable.

We have been returning to Estes Park regularly since then, and we always make several stops to the Taffy Shop. The best feeling is hearing my daughters both say that they look forward to bringing their own families here someday. I gave my husband a taffy-of-the quarter birthday present one year, and it’s hands down has been his favorite gift ever!

Recently, we were visiting and buying boxes for both of our girls. One lives out of town, and the shop made it so easy by handling the shipping for us at a very reasonable charge. Also, after taking care of that order, my daughter asked for a change. The lady who was working that day (Sun. March 1st, 2020) was very kind and understanding, and she went to the back to get the box and make the change. She was awesome!

Clean store, not cluttered, super friendly staff, free samples helped me buy gifts and personal taffy. The numerous flavors were great. Well worth the price and passing by the franchise taffy stores. Watching them make the taffy sold me on the quality!!!

This place showcases the making of salt water taffy. It goes back almost 100 years with amazing old equipment on display and in use. Something like 30-40 flavors. Tip: Get the variety box fro about $27, over a pond of taffy. Right on the Esters Park main street.

This particular Taffy Shop is a regular stop anytime my wife and I am in Estes. The shop owner is friendly, the taffy is by far the best in the area, and it doesn't hurt that a free piece is given to chew on while you make your decision.

They have traditional flavors as well as some more unique offerings. Each time is utterly consistent in the flavor.

The memory doesn't do it justice, you just have to go in again and again.

We love The Taffy Shop! A visit to Estes Park is not complete without a stop there. As a girl, we visited Estes Park every summer and we would always buy taffy. As my three boys have grown up, we have continued to buy this taffy. It is the only taffy we buy. When we can't be in Estes, we order online. The staff is just as attentive to our requests as they are in person. The taffy is the softest with the best flavors. The Taffy Shop will be a tradition years to come with our boys and their children.

We love this place. Every time we visit Estes Park this is our first stop. There are taffy places all up and down the street but this is the only one that actually makes it fresh on the premises. They are sooooo yummy you must check them out. Be sure to read their storyboard in the store. They have been in Estes park since before it became a booming tourist town and have been mentioned in Smithsonian magazine.

yummy taffy, great selection very helpful gal that waited on me. I ordered a box to be sent back to my mom for her birthday and a family sized box for us. The vanilla is my favorite and the pecan but we got some of all the flavors. I had found several coupons that she let me use. one for an extra handful and a bag to put it in. This is a must stop for us on each trip to Estes. The challenge for us is the hours. They are only open till six so you have to make the effort to get there in time.

Made on site, sold by weight. I've always found the taffy sold in beach towns too chewy. Estes Park-made taffy is perfectly delicious without the fear of pulling out a crown.

We’ve been getting taffy here for over 50 years. No other taffy compares. They take out of town orders and ship. If you live in a humid climate simply put it in the fridge or freezer. Truly one of a kind taffy!

My first experience with The Taffy Shop was in 1983, I was 11 years old, and was on vacation with my parents. The store was green on the outside then....and we called it "The Green Store". At 11, it was my favorite shop on the Riverwalk!

Fast forward to 2020, and my man and I are on our honeymoon in Estes Park. I couldn't wait to revisit "The Green Store"....but its no longer green! The outside has been painted white....but the TAFFY is the the freshest and the bestest on the Riverwalk. The original, and the BEST! A must stop on the Riverwalk
