Before the invention of candy, mankind had to make do with "nature's candy"—fermented cabbage, fruit the monkeys didn't want, and live, feather-covered Peeps. Enjoy modern goodies with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of taffy, fudge, and candy at Zeno's Boardwalk Street Shop, located on Main Street.
For more than 60 years, Zeno's Boardwalk Street Shop has concocted sweet treats at its boardwalk shop, including handcrafted taffy, more than two dozen types of fudge, and a whimsical assortment of candy. Zeno's confectionary connoisseurs employ a special whipping technique to fashion light, smooth, and obedient taffy in tongue-awakening flavors such as candy apple, banana split, double-fudge brownie, and guava ($7.49–$8.99 for 1 lb. bag, contains 65–70 pieces of taffy). Sucrose seekers who are waffling between flavors can opt for the melt-in-your-mouth Try 'em All bag, which houses a minimum of 80 diverse tenants in a kaleidoscopic dwelling ($10.99). Zeno's taffy tycoons can also dip the soft treat into pools of dark chocolate for its taffy truffles ($4.99 for four pieces).
Chocoholics can lure a hunk of decadent fudge into salivating mouth traps, with flavors such as chocolate cheesecake, s'mores, and cinnamon bun ($6.99 for 1/2 lb., $13.98 for 1 lb.). Zeno's candy includes wild fruit gummi worms ($2.99), classic peanut brittle ($4.99), and Caterpillar, a set of six caramel-dipped marshmallows that dream of someday shedding their cocoons to become fully formed peanut-butterflies ($11.99).
