The Taffy Shop

The Best Estes Park Taffy Company
Lined up for a taste of the best Estes Park taffy

The Taffy Shop has been serving up homemade taffy in downtown Estes Park, using the same recipe, for over 80 years.

There’s a reason they’ve been using the same recipe for 80 years–this taffy is amazing. It’s soft, melt-in-your mouth taffy that’s absolutely delicious. (And doesn’t stick to your teeth!) You can watch them making the taffy right in the window of the shop, and you can taste the homemade freshness in each piece of taffy.

While you’re in the shop, it’s not uncommon to hear people say things like, “My grandparents took me here when I was little, and I always stop here when I’m in Estes Park…”

The shop serves their seven signature flavors: cinnamon, peppermint, lemon, Texas pecan, vanilla, molasses, and chocolate, plus a surprise flavor or two that varies depending on the day.

And check out that sign! Both the exterior and the interior of this quaint shop ooze with historic charm.

They can ship taffy anywhere in the US, and you can also order online.

Check out this fun 15 minute video, made for The Taffy Shop’s 80th anniversary:

Be sure to visit The Taffy Shop when you’re in Estes Park!

Please note: there is a newcomer to town, the “Estes Park Taffy Company.” They have two locations, and lots of flavors, but their taffy just doesn’t hold a candle to The Taffy Shop. I tried a piece from each store side by side, and, while The Taffy Shop’s was deliciously melty and smooth, the Estes Park Taffy Company taffy had a waxy texture and left a funny taste in my mouth. YUCK.  Stick to the original, The Taffy Shop!
