Overview

Sweet Haven Candy Shop is a boutique candy shop fashioned after the boardwalk sweet shops we remember as children, with an urban-chic edge. We have over 140 bulk candies (including 40 Jelly Belly bean flavors) for you to pick and choose, and a beautiful showcase of artisan, locally crafted and homemade chocolate. If Salt Water Taffy is what you're seeking we have the best; original Jersey Style taffy fresh from Ocean City. Thirsty? We have a nice variety of unique cold beverages. Looking for something you just can't find anymore?? We probably have it! Check out our selection of nostalgic goodies from yesteryear. We are open 7 days in the Summer and weekends in the Spring and Fall.

OK. Guess how much this is. Two smores, two m&m oreos, two small non pariels and a chocolate covered cherry. $36.... I'm guessing you thought less. Now ask if it was good. Nope. Tasted cheaply made and not fresh. Very disappointing....will not go again.More

Hi jonathanls, Thanks for your visit. I'm very sorry you didn't like the chocolate. Most people love our chocolate! I am more concerned with how much you reportedly spent, however. Based on your list, it should have come out to around $16-$18, not $36. If...More

The women working the counter was super sweet. There was a nice split selection of classic candy, fresh chocolate dipped connections, and by the pound candy. Prices were decent and makes a nice desert destination after leaving Chegg.

We always stop here after eating at the Chegg (the chicken or the egg), which is next door. Great selection, easy to get too much (therefore couLd be expensive). The staff was friendly and very helpful.
