Shrivers has been part of the Ocean City,NJ boardwalk for over 100 years. No matter whether you desire the many flavors of salt water taffy, or their delicious fudge, hard candy or macaroons, you can't go wrong with your selections. They even have all types of candies for those with dietary restrictions. If you are looking for holiday candies, whether... More

Feel like a kid entering this place. Any candy you want they will most likely have. Taffy is in about three to four dozen flavors. Fudge is extremely good. Buy the box with ocean city boardwalk pictured on it.....that's my art work !

Yeah, you might say I am biased because I live here, but I love salt water taffy and to me Shriver's is the the best! It is soft and smooth and you can watch them make whatever flavor they are making most days. When you stop in don't miss out on their mint melt-aways. They literally melt in your mouth!... More

The store is very large, very clean and has a large assortment of items, besides the salt water taffy. The woman behind the counter was very friendly. It was fun to watch the taffy wrapping machine work.

We stopped here right before we left. I had to get some salt water taffy to take home. They were making a fresh batch which they shared samples of with everyone. I had a hard time choosing, since they also had a great selection of fudge and chocolates, but in the end my love of taffy got me. I expect... More

I love everything about Shrivers. They have such a positive atmosphere from the moment you go in to the moment they drag you out of the store when it's closing time. The Fudge they make is so yummy and don't get me started on the Taffy. But the best thing is their other store Shrivers Gelato Ice-Cream. You get so... More

If you want a good box of Saltwater Taffy, Shivers is the place to go. They make their own right on the premises.

The best attraction on the Ocean City boardwalk is Shriver's Salt Water Taffy! The taffy is made on the premises and comes in numerous flavors including sugar free and there is a window in the back of the store where you can watch the taffy being made. Besides taffy, they have fudge, also in numerous flavors, chocolates, macaroons and a... More

The taffy here is amazing! I love that you can buy pre-packaged boxes or choose your own assortment. There are a bunch of different flavors and every one I tried was delicious. I had to hide the bag from other family members so they wouldn't eat every piece. It's neat to be able to watch them making it, too. The... More

I remember seeing this back in the 1960's when my grandparents took me to Shrivers, and it hasn't lost it's magic! Plus,they immediately handed out the freshly made pieces of taffy to all of the spectators, and it was incredible! You HAVE to see it. Be prepared to spend a lot of time there too because when you start choosing... More
