“Best Saltwater Taffy Anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

My husband is a Saltwater Taffy, well, addict. He says the taffy from here is by far the best than from any other place he has had it from. Believe me he has had it from quite a few places. :-)

“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Amazing sweet shop, and so charming, too. Boys got some taffy and the Lego Sweet Tarts (ingenious invention). Hubby and I got some peanut butter malt balls (delectable) and a few items to bring home. So many unique choices; I want to go back soon to buy more!

“Willy Wonka is Jealous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

How rare to find a gourmet candy shop with a truly different and interesting selection. The cottage itself looks like it was an extra in a children's movie. To see all of the unique and tasty candies from the UK, Finland, Germany and other places was a joy. The folks working there did not seem thrilled, but everything else made up for it.

TIP: Rasberry truffles cannot be avoided!
