Cabot's Candy

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, which still operates today in Provincetown, MA. 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. Cabot's Candy is proud of their long history of making some of the best saltwater taffy around, and of sharing their 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, there is nothing more satisfying to them than being a sweet tradition for families and dear friends.

Cabot's Candy has a brand new location in Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA! In addition to the confections, they carry an exciting selection of delicious candy in both stores: bin after bin of self-weighed gummies and chocolate covered treats, nostalgic penny candy, fine truffles and chocolate bars, regionally made maple candy and caramels plus so much more. They love finding new things for customers to try as well stocking old favorites, because sometimes only a Squirrel Nut Zipper will do.
