If you're into old-school candy shops (because…who isn't?) then you'll inevitably find yourself at Bruce's Candy Kitchen (256 N Hemlock St., Cannon Beach, 503-436-2641, brucescandy.com). Founders Bruce and Treva Haskell opened the pink-and-white-striped store on April 1, 1963, and it has remained a family-run business ever since. Buckets of sugary, colorful confections line the aisles, where you'll find everything from salt water taffy to hand-dipped chocolates to peanut brittle as well as gummies. If you're lucky, you may even see the taffy-pulling machine in action whipping up a fresh batch. By the way, you can stuff your face with more than 30 flavors, so there's no shame in sampling a few. Or 20.
YOU KNOW BECAUSE OF WW.
The story you’re about to read is a result of our reporters working hard. They cover the effects of the coronavirus, keep an eye on governments’ response, and look out for the safety and well-being of Portlanders. With every turn of this story, we attempt to bring you the news and information you need to stay safe.
We can only do this because of you.
As a small, independent news organization, we face new challenges. We rely on advertisers, readers’ support, and event revenue—and those sources of income are changing rapidly.
