Dolle’s Caramel Popcorn is a family tradition for us. They have the best popcorn, best saltwater taffy, the best caramel apples, the best fudge and the best selection of candy! Ever since my childhood Dad would always stop here each summer to buy two large...tubs of caramel popcorn while we vacationed in Ocean City. To keep with tradition my boyfriend and I have been vacationing here for the last two decades and we always stop to buy Dad his caramel popcorn. Dolle’s always offers great customer service. On this trip, on the evening of August 23rd, 2020, I witnessed one confectioner serving all the customers. He was greeting customers, serving customers & ring customers up while another employee stood behind him at a prep counter with a calculator, counting coins. A line of people started to form and “The coin counter” was totally oblivious to the customers irritation for the unnecessary wait. Customer’s come first...this is just common sense. Another employee came out front...but not to help customers /or his fellow coworker. He just stood there and watched our guy at the service counter doing all the work. Mind boggling! Our confectioner apologized to me for the long wait and thanked me for my patience. I could see the sincerity in his eyes and suddenly I knew this guy is an unsung hero. What a good heart and a phenomenal work ethic! I don’t know this guy or what his job pays, but he deserves a promotion and a raise. As a representative and the face of Dolle’s on the front line, in public view, he did supreme! He was pulling the full weight of responsibility for his whole team. Serving the public has it’s challenges and you meet all kind’s. Thank you for the exceptional care and the interest to build a report with this long time patron. I thought of taking his picture but felt as though it would be Intrusive. So I have this to say to him; I have no doubt if you take that same work ethic with you in life you’ll rise up to meet challenges head on and you can do anything you put your mind to! Take good care & I wish you much success in life.More

Visited Dolle's Candyland on the boardwalk in Ocean City, MD. The store was clean, cool and well staffed. The fudge is very creamy and the salt water taffy was available in "Kisses" size which is my favorite. I also picked up hand made dark chocolate...non-pareils. They are so good, I should have bought a bigger bag. LOLOL. I wanted to bring my dog sitter a small package of salt water taffy (not a whole pound box) and this store had EXACTLY what I was looking for. This Candy Store is worth a visit when you are downtown Ocean City, MD.More

Working with Lisa through the mail order process was Outstanding. She was responsive and professional in every way. We had a couple of requests that she was able to accommodate as well as processing the order quickly in order to insure a timely delivery for...an upcoming event! The process was flawless. Thank you for helping make my Dad’s 90th birthday celebration a complete success and giving us one less thing to worry about during the birthday preparation!More

I went to the rt 52 location. It was great. Staff was very nice. Taffy was amazing very soft and fresh. Wish they offered more variety as far as flavors. Popcorn was great. I’m sorry I passed on fudge (stupid diet). My kids got candy...and it was fresh and juicy. Adorable gifts. Great experienceMore

I was at the Boardwalk location and I ordered a small bucket of cheese and caramel mix. One young man took my payment and the other proceeded to make my order. The young man making the order took a plastic bag, placed it inside the...bucket and opened the bag with his bare hands to spread it open so that he could place the popcorn inside. He placed the caramel popcorn in first (the scooper was stored outside of the popcorn bin) and then went to the cheddar cheese popcorn (the scooper was stored INSIDE the popcorn bin). Afterwards, he turned around and attempted to dump the popcorn into the bucket ( I guess this was to ensure that it was mixed). In the process some of the popcorn dropped onto the counter and he picked it up with his BARE hand and put it on top of my popcorn in the container and then closed the top. I said to him I just watched how you made that and I saw you touch my popcorn with your bare hands and I cannot eat that. He didn't complain, and he made the popcorn for me again...the same exact way except the second time, he threw away the popcorn that dropped on the counter. This time, I just took the popcorn from him and walked off. I was in complete disbelief that my food would have been prepped in this manner ESPECIALLY in the middle of this pandemic. In my opinion, the scoopers should never be stored inside the popcorn... especially when they are not using gloves. They should not put their hands inside the plastic bag where the popcorn will go...especially when they are not using gloves. They should not pick up popcorn that has dropped onto the countertop and put it into the customer's container...ever. I didn't ask for a refund because the line was getting long and I didn't want to trouble the young fellows anymore but I did call in so that someone is aware of what is going on because it is very unsafe. I am not saying that any of the workers had or currently have the virus, I am just saying that precautions that should have been taken for all customers was not displayed at the time of my visit. I was not comfortable eating the popcorn that I purchased and I ended up tossing it in the trash.More

We just love Dolle’s. The caramel apples are amazing and the caramel popcorn is better than Fishers. The saltwater taffy is far superior to that of candy kitchen. There are more flavors of taffy than any other candy maker, and they are more bold and...full of flavor than other brands of taffy. The homemade candy selection is enormous and absolutely delicious. You must try Dolle’s when you get to OC, MD. You won’t be disappointed.More

If you like sweets, that's the best place to go. Their saltwater candies are delicious, always fresh. Dozens of different flavors. A must-go when on the boardwalk.
