North Oregon Coast News: Anniversary and Music in Cannon Beach
(Cannon Beach, Oregon) – One north coast icon will celebrate a major landmark, while another starts up a new feature.
On April 1, it will be a half century that Bruce's Candy Kitchen has been handing out candied sweets to tourists on the north Oregon coast. The little hotspot started on April 1, 1963, and has stayed in the family the whole time.
Bruce’s Candy Kitchen’s will celebrate its 50th Anniversary with an open house including food, beverages, music and sweets on Monday, April 1, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
“This party is to celebrate and thank our loyal customers, employees past and present, community members and friends for helping the family business survive and thrive over the last 50 years,” said Kelli Taylor, co-owner and granddaughter of Bruce and Treva Haskell, the founders of Bruce’s Candy Kitchen.
The candy store specializes in homemade confections, including award winning salt water taffy, caramel corn, hand dipped chocolates, fudge, caramel apples and more. Customers can view the salt water taffy and other confections being made on site in the working kitchen.
A large variety of other confections are available including licorice, jelly beans and gummies. The store’s distinctive pink and white building is a landmark in downtown Cannon Beach, Oregon.
