Salt Water Taffy
we make the candy we sell
There's a lot of taffy places on the boardwalk that sell stuff that's made a factory somewhere else. That's not Douglass. The variety is awesome. It's not just taffy and fudge. They have many other chocolate treats and macaroons. The young ladies that serve you are polite and helpful. Forget the rest; go with the best.
Great service. Homemade chocolates to die for. Left with a bag. Then they gave a few caramel samples. We turned around and bought a pound. The caramels have sea salt in them. The smoothest caramel me and my kids have ever tasted. Plus the best tasting chocolate covered pretzels!
I recommend Douglass Fudge for EVERYTHING. One of my most cherished memories as a child was going to this store on the boardwalk. I still remember the soft plaid carpet, the wonderful smells, the scottie dog, and it was always cool in there. The pecan nut roll is my favorite. LOVE to the Douglass Family.
