I visited this location on a Monday following Christmas. There is an excellent array of candy - some unique choices. Many taffy flavors are available, along with chocolates, chewy candies, etc. available. I purchased a pre-made bag of cinnamon bears (which tasted terrible) and a pre-made bag of cherry slices.

Most candies are by pound and can get very costly if you fill their bucket. We got some salt water taffy. $8.99/lb!

So many choices of candy in this store! And A LOT of choices of salt water taffy. I love taffy so this was heaven for me. It's pretty spendy though. It's about $10 per lb (with tax). There were no signs that I could see saying how much things were so I didn't know the damage until I checked out!... More

Every flavour of saltwater taffy imaginable! Pick up a bag & fill it up. Lots & lots of sweets & treats to choose from, from chocolate bars to bubblegum. At the end of the pier, definitely worth a visit to fulfill any sweet tooth desire. Carole : )

Located at Pier39. So many salt water taffy flavors to choose from, plus the selection of chocolates and candies! Set a budget or you'll end up overspending. Munch on these salt water taffy as you roam Pier 39.
