    Best taffy now and back 70 years ago!
    We usually get to Estes Park every summer, going from our home in Tabernash, CO, through Rocky Mountain National Park. One of our main reasons for going to Estes is to get a box of the Original Salt Water Taffy. I have been coming there for about 70 years. The taffy never changes. It is as wonderful as when I came as a child with my parents and sister.

    The Original amazing Taffy Shop!
    This is the original and excellent Taffy Shop! Do not get confused by the "new" taffy shops in town trying to look like the original taffy shop!! I have been coming to Estes Park with my family for years and finally was able to get back up there and it is still as amazing as I remember, wonderful people and spectacular Taffy.

    Estes Parks’s original taffy ship w
    Great original Estes Park taffy shop. Don’t be fooled by the others, this is the original. My grandparents first took me here in 1961 or 1962 and I’ve been visiting with family ever since; with my parents, then my kids, and now my grandkids. Only candy shop my wife and I go to in Estes. Fresh, flavorful, and a good variety of flavors.

    Best Taffy Ever
    I’ve never been a big fan of saltwater taffy. However my husband and I stopped by the shop last week, had a free sample (chocolate salted caramel made that morning) then bought a small box of assorted flavors. It’s almost all gone and 9/10 has been enjoyed by me!!! I will be looking to order online :) Thanks guys! Caroline from NC

    A+ customer service
    We stopped in here on our way back to Denver. We arrived at opening and they were in the process of making a few batches. The lady at the counter was very pleasant and gave us some history of the place as we waited for the fresh taffy to be ready. The taffy is top notch and delicious. Glad we stopped in!

    A MUST stop in Estes Park, CO
    From the moment you walk in you are greeted by the amazing smells of the fresh made taffy, and the warm welcome by the owner. Absolutely love this shop! The taffy is amazing. So flavorful and fresh. If you're in Estes Park you have to stop by...at the very least for a free sample. Lol

    Don't buy your Taffy anywhere else!
    We have done a mother/daughter visit to Estes Park for several years. We always stop at The Taffy Shop, est. 1935. The best Taffy and the original recipe made right there. There are other shops, but don't be fooled. This is the real deal, and you can taste it. Amazing flavors, fresh and the staff are positively wonderful! 100% recommend! We will see you again next year! Thank you!

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.

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.

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.
