Ainslee's Salt Water Taffy, Depoe Bay

4.5
#9 of 11 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.

  • We always stop here to buy our taffy. A few times over the past 20 + years that we made it to the coast but couldn't make it to Ainslee's and bought elsewhere. It was so bad, it went in the garbage. N...  more »

  • 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.
  • Most amazing salt water taffy in the area! As well as their chocolate covered gummy bears!! This place is a must every time I'm in Depoe Bay!!
  • Taffy and chocolates are good, but the staff was very rude and treated us like we were a burden.
  • Large selection of flavors and great taste! Cool to see their machine making Taffy and wrapping it. Missed seeing it run this visit since the machine is run in the morning.
