Very pricy candy store but always tons of fun to look at all the different kinds of candy especially from different countries. Most candies are by pound and can get very costly if you fill their bucket. We got some salt water taffy. $8.99/lb! Let the kids pick from their vast selection but was careful because it easily can cost... More

Boy they have everything here from good old US candies to the British chocolate bars, such as; Mars, Milkyway and Bounty, which I grew up on as a kid. We literally went round the store and purchased so many varieties and different types of candies from gummy bears to mints. Candy Baron is a must if you plan a visit... More

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

Had some fun here getting some salt water taffy. Prices are pretty high but they have some good varieties of taffy. My kids were in sugar heaven.

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.

We stocked our bag with taffy and sweets for our tour around San Fran. Yummy! You fill the bag and they weigh it.

They have a huge selection of candy! So many different gifts we had never seen at any other store. Most of the candy is bulk so it's sold by the pound, but control your sweet tooth because it will add up quick! Our little 4 year old picked up everything he wanted and went spent $$!! The store carries just... More
