I checked with owner, and verified the taffy (“ GF since ‘63” he said) and other things I wanted to buy (salted caramels & fudge) were GF, safe for celiac. They are, and were delicious. This is the candy shop to visit in Cannon Beach! I (and my daughter) like that you can watch them make the taffy.
Staff was great and they let me talk to the head chef! Make all their own salt water taffy in house and say it is GF. I researched the corn starch they use and got a gluten free letter from them! Say they do dip Oreos in chocolate but don’t use flour in their kitchen. Taffy is kept separate from chocolate items in store and kitchen. They sell some non GF prepackaged candies also. BEST taffy on the coast and have enjoyed it for many years. Nice to know our Celiac daughter can continue eating it. Also have a small location in Seaside near outlet mall! Haven’t been there yet. Taffy all made in Cannon Beach.
