This is a great candy store with a polite and helpful staff. You can buy ice cream, candy like Necco, Abba Zabba, and Spuds, which are hard to find now. They have caramel candy which is the best I have ever had, hard candy, truffles, chocolates, just about anything you could want, this store provides. Stop in and checkit out.... More

When we are in Cayucos, my 'tween' grandson always manages to finagle me into a stop at The Candy Counter. The store carries everything from bubblegum to saltwater taffy. The counter girls are fantastic and patient (a must when kids are making such hard decisions!) There is ice cream or gourmet lattes, cappuccinos, and more. This time of year (October)... More

What a great shop to have at the Pier in Cayucos. They have a large selection of the Candies you loved as a kid. They also have wonderful house made Chocolate Candies, these are excellent and make for a wonderful way to enjoy your visit to the Pier.

We love candy stores and this is a good one. Especially love the variety -- something for everyone like candy necklaces for kids and dark chocolate honeycomb for mom and dad -- and reasonable prices.

The Cayucos Candy Counter is tucked away between the Duckie's and one side (corner) and the Surf shop on the other side (corner). But once you find it, you will see a full range of sweet treats, if you have kids hold on tight, as their eyes will begin to water from all the selections of Candy, Chocolate, and Ice... More

My eleven year old grandson and I were here just last week. This store is very busy so just accept there will be a line at the counter. Enjoy hard-to-find candies, and let your kid choose a couple kinds. It's vacation, right?

This Candy shop makes most of its own candy and ice cream. You can get all sorts of goodies here. Everyone loves a good ice cream cone, Like Caucus Crunch.

The candies and ice cream may seem a bit pricey, but come on, you're vacationing at the coast! Great location close to the pier. Friendly and courteous staff. Oh, yes, and of course yummy ice cream and great handmade chocolates.
