The chocolate here is good but can be a bit too sweet. I like the salt water taffy, especially the peanut butter.

I go into Sanborn a least few times a year. I usually buy their fabulous fudge or their sugar mints as a hostess gift and they wrap for free. For the kids, they always have a little grab bag with a chocolate lollipop and assorted non-chocolate items. Caramel popcorn and molasses puff are also some of my favorites.

Sanborn's makes their own candies, including delicious chocolates, hard candies, and fudge. The variety is amazing.

Love that I live near Sanborn's because every time we get a visitor we take them to get taffy. Best taffy according to my mother-in-law. I also love getting the Carmel apples I think it will be a new tradition for fall

A local candy shop that's been here for years. Over the years they add specials during the holidays and my favorite in the summer is their Chocolate dipped frozen Banana's. One to eat on the way to the car and another to chomp on during your ride to the beach. A must try.

The place is very clean and the help are very friendly but the candy is expensive and you can not mix and match.
