      This is one of my favorite stores in Provincetown. They have such a variety of candy, including their own fudge and addictive saltwater taffy.

      While there are of course other places on Cape Cod to buy saltwater taffy, I prefer to buy it from this store. They have a great variety of taffy, and it’s always fresh - not like that old stuff you get at some of the other places. And it’s well organized and labeled.

      The candy selection as a whole is fantastic.

      They seem to have everyone’s favorite kind, from popular candy bars and bubble gums to less common candies and old-school classics.

      One thing I like about the store is its character. They don’t give you plastic shopping baskets, instead they have actual woven baskets to put your candy in prior to payment, I’ve always thought that was kinda cool. And the storefront looks so . . . I can’t think of the word, it looks like it’s been around for years, a kind ...

      • of store you could trust to make quality confections.

        The only thing I don’t like about the store is the layout. It’s very small, and there’s an island in the center which creates traffic problems. Ideally people would move in one direction around the store, but of course that doesn’t happen. And since it’s popular with kids in a family shopping area, people like to move around in groups, slowly of course. If there’s a line at the register, there’s even more of

        an issue.

        Of course, avoiding the crowd is easy (and strongly advised) if you know the right strategy. It’s most crowded in the hours after lunch, and again after dinner. There are hours when there’s not a lot of people in the store, and those times are perfect.

        In all, I reccomend a stop at the Penny Patch to anyone planning a trip, or even just a visit to that region of the Cape. There’s bound to be something for everyone, and I definitely reccomend the saltwater taffy!
