For over 60 years the iconic Berkeley Candy store on the boardwalk in the seashore town of Seaside Heights, NJ, has drawn visitors from near and far to sample homemade fudge, salt water taffy and seasonal specials.
The Berkeley Candy store is a family owned business and uses original recipes and old-fashioned techniques to ensure the highest quality and taste that customers have come to expect. Many of those customers have been visiting the shop since they were children visiting the boardwalk with their families.
Come visit us on the Seaside Boardwalk today!

Most of our customers have purchased taffy in the summer time and find the taffy in the winter time to be a bit different. All taffy is best at room temperature, which is how we store it, pack it and ship it. While being shipped, taffy can harden or melt, depending on the temperatures. Winter taffy has a tendency to snap in half and be harder in general. Hard taffy is almost always a sign of cold temperatures (not staleness). Melted taffy is a sign of very warm temperatures.
To solve either of these issues, place the taffy in a warm area of your home and allow it to return to room temperature. You can soften taffy by holding it tightly in your hands or even microwaving it for a few seconds. Also, if your taffy is too soft, you can place it in the refrigerator.
We do recommend consuming our taffy within a couple months of delivery!
