It’s pretty cool to say your state has the best candy store in all of America, and now we have that claim in Colorado!

A favorite in downtown Estes Park was just voted as the “best candy store in the U.S.”

The shop called The Taffy Shop took the top spot on Wednesday (June 19) in USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards contest.

First selected as a finalist by a panel of experts, then voters across the country selected The Taffy Shop as No. 1 on the list.

USA Today said of The Taffy Shop: “Since 1935, visitors have popped into The Taffy Shop to watch candymakers create the store’s iconic Estes Park Salt Water Taffy. Not only can you get your favorite tried-and-true flavors such as lemon, vanilla, and peppermint, but also daily flavors such as blueberry, chocolate cherry, and orange creamsicle.”
