SumTan's Pacific Northwest Trek - Part 12
Our next stop was the small town of Seaside, OR, supposedly known for its salt water taffy. In fact, in one of the brochures we picked up, one shop mentioned that they had 170 flavors to choose from! Therefore, we just had to stop off at The Seaside Candyman, the "best and biggest salt water taffy shop west of the Rockies – Simply Yum-didly-umpous!"


Cool store layout, lame logo

At the store itself, they had a Wheel of Fortune-type spinner that anyone could use to try to win free stuff. Darren and I both stunk at it and each won a lousy piece of candy. However, the gals showed us up by each taking home a prize; Amy scored a candy stick while Christy bagged a bunch of popcorn.


No Pat Sajak to be found

We decided to grab some bags and select some taffy to take home with us. Of course, it's easy to see what types you are choosing when you look at the display, however once the flavors are in the bag, they get harder to tell apart. To help solve this problem, the store issues a handy guide with descriptions of what each candy looks like and what flavor they happen to be. For example, the Jalapeno is described as "light green with dark green jacket and center" and so forth. They guide also provides helpful "Tips for Taffy." My favorite: "To remove wrapper use thumb and forefinger on each end and pull apart. Then grab edge of wrapper and pull." Duh.

For those interested in the salt water taffy selection that we had available, here's a list of all the flavors in their guide (which I only count as 155, not 170... who are they trying to con?):
