The Taffy Barrel

211 Bridge Street,
Charlevoix, Michigan 49720

Remember the days of penny candy, the old general store and when the cost of gasoline was only 23 cents a gallon? Unfortunately, the cost of penny candy is no longer a penny and none of us will ever understand the cost of gasoline, but the look and feel of an old fashioned general store does still exist at the Taffy Barrel. Imagine, over 150 barrels and baskets loaded with your favorite candies, that old creaky wood floor, the old decorative tin ceiling and the cool breeze from the ceiling fan on a warm summer’s day.

No matter your age... when you walk in you turn into a kid again. Fill up your bucket with the sweet treats and then they weigh it and cash you out. Only downfall is I love all their stuff and I have to give ourselves a budget otherwise we'd buy the entire store. 😊

The taffy was a bit too chewy in my experience. Also, I expected them to make their taffy fresh in house but judging from the brand written on the wrapper they just buy it wholesale

Avoid. Unhelpful and rude staff selling flat bottled Coca Cola products. My Diet Coke had no carbonation and they refused to replace or refund or come up with any other way to address the defective product.
