This store was opened in 1935, and has produced Salt Water Taffy in the store ever since. It looks like the freeze ray hit in the 50's as everything is original, and all of the equipment is in excellent operating condition. Walk in during candy making and see the taffy puller stretching taffy, watch the Model K Kiss wrapper cut, shape and wrap the taffy in shiny cellophane just 12" behind the glass wall, almost close enough to touch! The actual cooking operation is a guarded secret, so the public is not allowed into the cooking kitchen, but special tours may be arranged by calling ahead for a personalized tour with the owner as time permits. This is a special place and family tradition for millions of visitors over the last 80 years who come in these doors every time they visit this popular little mountain town.
Daily, vary by season
The taffy equipment is always visible, even from outside the store- and the staff will tell stories and how taffy is made if the line isn't too long. Call ahead for a tour of the store with the owner.
