Douglass Candies is Expanding to Ocean City
Nestled along the iconic Wildwood Boardwalk at Wildwood Ave, Douglass Candies stands as a beacon of sweetness, drawing locals and tourists alike to indulge in a delightful journey through a world of confectionery wonders.
This charming candy store has been a beloved fixture in Wildwood crafting memories and satisfying sweet cravings with its delectable treats.
Founded in 1919 by Charles Douglass, Douglass Candies is the oldest family-owned business in Wildwood.
Interesting fact, the building that housed the original Douglass Candies Wildwood location was built with recycled army barracks from Cape May, NJ.
Douglass Candies has perfected the art of crafting saltwater taffy, a quintessential seaside treat. The taffy pullers in action behind the glass window showcase the meticulous process of turning simple ingredients into chewy, flavorful delights.
With flavors ranging from classic vanilla and chocolate to more adventurous options like cotton candy and banana split, there’s a taffy for every palate.
From 1919 til now, many changes came to the business. Now run by fourth-generation brothers James and Jason, they have taken the business to new heights by opening up a second location at 9600 3rd Avenue in Stone Harbor.
The news that Douglass Candies was coming to Ocean City came via their Facebook page where they wrote;
“We’re excited to share the news of our latest expansion: a brand new location opening in Ocean City! We are thrilled to be joining another amazing community.”
No address was listed on the post but continued by saying there would be a grand opening ceremony in the Spring.
Fans of Douglass Candies knew something big was in the works after a post they put online a few weeks ago that went on to say “We have some exciting announcements coming soon about 2024 so stay tuned! 2024 is going to be our best year yet!”
Douglass Candies in South Jersey is more than just a candy store; it’s a living testament to the joy that sweet treats can bring.
Whether you’re strolling along the boardwalk, creating a custom assortment, or savoring the iconic saltwater taffy, a visit to Douglass Candies is a journey into a world of nostalgia, tradition, and, most importantly, delightful indulgence. It’s a place where memories are made, and the sweet legacy of Wildwood continues to thrive.
We wish Douglass Candies the best of luck in Ocean City!
