“Good but...PRICEY”
Review of Southport Taffy & Fudge Factory - CLOSED

Southport Taffy & Fudge Factory
Description: We are moving our location to 112 E. Moore St. Through the Courtyard. We will be reopening 2/1/2014. Please bear with us as we put the old time atmosphere back together. Southport Taffy & Fudge Factory is a shop that brings the old nostalgic feel of the boardwalk to Southport. The owners, Mark & Diane Salyer of Southport, felt that the old taffy & fudge shop atmosphere was missing in Southport so they decided to open one.

“Good but...PRICEY”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We filled 2 bags of taffy (half full each) and got a variety of chocolates/ candies that filled a small box (roughly 8 pieces). Don't get me wrong it was good-but not $37 good! For that price I would expect each piece of chocolate to be individually wrapped.

We're glad you liked our candy; however we are concerned that you thought it was pricey. We are priced below like candy stores in Charleston, Myrtle Beach and Savannah. I reviewed your order and noticed you had almost 2 lbs of taffy, the pretzel stick (which was wrapped in cellophane with a bow), an animal sucker that was taken to eat right away, pralines (wrapped in tissue, a couple buckeyes (in candy liners) and a cashew cluster (wrapped in our quick sheets so the caramel doesn't melt onto the other candy). We make all of our candy at the store and purposely don't wrap each piece so that people can see what they get. We will however take your comment under consideration and see how we can package our chocolates better in the future.

“Best Rocky Road Fudge Ever!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

So many wonderful fudge flavors, and we mixed many in our 1.5 lbs. But the Rocky Road is without a doubt the best Rocky Road we have ever had. And we have had a lot, up and down the East Coast. Owner mentioned they will soon offer shipping and Holiday ordering. Watch for a website to come.
