What is the "C" in
The C Shop?


The "C" in C Shop stands for many things that start with "C" or rhyme with "sea".

We're a candy shop. We make carmelcorn, cotton candy, cheesecorn, carmel apples, chocolate, snow cones and marshmallow sea snakes. We also have coffee, cookies, and cinnamon rolls. In the front kitchen window, you can see our candymakers making your favorite treats in copper kettles by the sea.

How many more things can you think of that begin with "C" or rhyme with "sea"? Let us know the next time you see us!

For a more complete history of the name and how The C Shop came to be, see Patricia's story.


Closed for winter!

Thank you for another amazing season!

"We'd highly recommend the C Shop for a yummy stop!" - Shekinah G., Salt Lake City, UT

The C Shop has something for everyone

From Jelly Belly beans to delicious truffles, homemade marshmallow sea snakes to hand-molded chocolates, snow cones to hard ice cream cones, and cotton candy to carmel apples, The C Shop Candy Shop most certainly has a sweet to suit all tastes. Enjoy your treat while you chat with the candymakers as he or she makes our homemade carmel and peanut brittle in a copper candy kettle, pops corn in the gas-fired popper, and whips marshmallow and divinity into shape. Learn about our fascinating antique candy-making equipment that is used to make all of our goodies and, if your timing is just right, there's often a sample of fudge making its way outside just for you.
