Cabot's Candy

Cabot's Candy got its start in 1927, hand-pulling saltwater taffy in small, local fairs. The popularity of this delectable seashore treat led to the opening of a beautiful little store and factory, where we still operate today in Provincetown, MA. Our product lines have grown to include award winning fudge, shockingly good peanut brittle, specialty flavored popcorn, baked goods and...some delicious surprises yet to come. We're proud of our long history of making some of the best saltwater taffy around, and of sharing our time proven recipe with generations of folks who come back year after year to share with their own children and grandchildren. As a family operated business, we can't think of anything more satisfying than being a sweet tradition for families and dear friends.

And now you can find us in a brand new location in Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA! In addition to the confections we make, we carry an exciting selection of delicious candy in both of our stores: bin after bin of weigh your own gummies and chocolate covered treats, nostalgic penny candy, fine truffles and chocolate bars, regionally made maple candy and caramels, and so much more. We love finding new things for you to try as well stocking old favorites, because we know that sometimes only a Squirrel Nut Zipper will do.
