Fralinger's

1519 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, NJ - (609) 344-1519
Posted By Michael Stern on 4/10/2015 10:47:00 AM
Our Atlantic City ritual has remained the same for a few decades now. First we eat subs (the world's best!) at The White House, then we find St. James St., quite a ways down from where all the newer corporate casinos are located, and enjoy a taste of old Atlantic City … at one of the best candy stores here or anywhere.

Fralinger’s is most famous for its salt water taffy. And if you are a taffy person, you’ll be in heaven with its sixteen different flavors, each as smooth and creamy as taffy can be. Ourselves, we go for the hard stuff: chocolate, in the form of molasses paddles that are coated with the dark chocolate. With its stick handle, a molasses paddle makes for great sucking and eating while on a Boardwalk stroll. Also irresistible is Fralinger’s crunchy molasses sheathed in chocolate. There are dozens of other candies available at this old store, which as far as we are concerned is the real jackpot in Atlantic City.

Long before the casinos came to town, Fralinger's was providing visitors with thrills of a different kind.
