Shriver's Salt Water Taffy

Shriver's was est. in 1898 and they learned that taffy, fudge, caramel popcorn and mint rolls were great sweets to make along the coast. High temperatures and humidity does not lend itself well to chocolate making.

Shriver's coined the name 'salt water taffy' and that is still a signature item. They pull 50 pounds at a time.

Cooking, pulling and wrapping are the three steps to making taffy.

They operate a gelato shop next door offering a cool treat in the summer sun.

They pipe chocolate designs and decorate them with non-pareils to create delicate decorations.
