Fudge, Taffy, and More — the Top 17 Candy Shops in Southern NJ
On the list of things you do when you hit any boardwalk down the shore is to stop by a candy store to pick up some sweet treats.
And while pizza is usually the thing people instantly think of when discussing their favorite foods at the beach, the history of candy between Atlantic City and Cape May is quite storied.
Names like Fralinger, James, Shriver, Steel, and others are just as famous as Manco & Manco in Ocean City and Sam's Pizza in Wildwood.
Picking up some salt water taffy -- which dates back to the 1880s -- fudge, and macaroons are the perfect way to top off any day in the sun.
