Ainslee's History

AboutUsIn 1947, Graham and Helen Ainslee opened their Salt Water Taffy Kitchen at Depoe Bay, a quaint little fishing village on the rugged coast of Oregon.

Through the years, they have established an enviable reputation for the finest salt water taffy available, by selling only from their original kitchen and using the finest ingredients possible.

Since 1978, Dale and Cindy Nelson, the new owners, have carried on this fine tradition of providing the highest quality Salt water taffy to be found anywhere.

When in Depoe Bay, plan to visit our glassed in kitchen where you can watch the entire process. From cooking, cooling, pulling, to the automatic high speed wrapping machine, working to bring you the finest Ainslee’s Salt Water Taffy.
