"The Home of Salt Water Taffy"

A visit to Atlantic City is never complete without tasting its unique invention known as salt water taffy. This soft and salty version of the taffy was invented accidentally in the 1880s after a deluge of the Atlantic Ocean soaked taffy stored in a seaside shop and impregnated it with salty flavors. Today, James' Confections continues this century-old tradition, and not much has changed since the inception of this brand in the 19th Century. The store is operated by James Candy Company, who also own Bayard's Chocolates and Fralingers Salt Water Taffy shops. Situated in a beach-side building on the famous Boardwalk, this shop sells premium mint, fudge, peanut butter chews, nuts, macaroons and, of course, salt water taffy. The candies are no doubt expensive but the charming packaging and the rich flavors based on original recipes more than make up for the price. A visit to this store is a must for experiencing Atlantic City's unique contribution to the culinary world and for picking up a treasured keepsake or gifting item.
