It’s an age-old Oregon tradition—visit the coast, try the taffy. Bruce’s Candy Kitchen, which has locations in Seaside and Cannon Beach, has been serving up the sweet treat since 1963. From humble beginnings—eight taffy flavors and twelve hand-dipped chocolates—the candy store has expanded to offer hundreds of delicacies. Look for the pink-and-white striped storefront—Bruce’s family is waiting for you.

Bruce's Candy Kitchen has been family-owned and operated for five generations. Sue Truax and her two daughters, Kelli and Toni, manage the Cannon Beach and Seaside locations.more
