#8 of 13 in Things to do in Depoe Bay
An old-fashioned candy store on the waterfront, Ainslee's Salt Water Taffy opened in 1947--it remains a must-stop for travelers with a sweet tooth. Inside, you'll see a taffy-wrapper machine at work, pulling, stretching, and folding the candy over and over again in mesmerizing circles. Be sure to taste the shop's signature buttery caramel corn.

  • They make their own taffy. Best on the Oregon coast. Have homemade chocolates also.
  • I was very impressed with the amount of flavors to choose from for taffy. The caramel popcorn and cheddar popcorn was so fresh - it went warm into the bag. We mixed the two for a sweet/salty sensation. It was the best I ever tasted.
  • Great family owned business. Best Taffy on the coast!
  • Its really good and there's like 100 different Taffy's and 🍫
