October is a sweet time of year. Trick-or-treaters will head out on the 31st in search of candy. Pumpkin pie is on the horizon. And visions of sugarplums (and holiday cookies) will soon be dancing in our heads. If you have a sweet tooth (and are craving a beach vacation), read on to learn about some of the sweetest candy shops on the Grand Strand.


A beach vacation isn’t complete without a taste of saltwater taffy! This sweet spot has three locations — one at Broadway at the Beach, one at Barefoot Landing, and one on Main Street in North Myrtle Beach. Wee-R-Sweets offers freshly made taffy (you can watch them pull it in the store) and rows of specialty sweets, such a gourmet candy apples. Taffy flavors include watermelon, banana, grape, and even pumpkin spice!

I Love Sugar

If you love sugar like we do, this is the place to visit! Located at 919 North Ocean Boulevard in downtown Myrtle Beach, you’ll find nearly every candy you could think of and then some! More than just a candy store, I Love Sugar is a magical, sugarcoated experience.



Prepare for a sugar rush! This crazy candy store specializes in innovate sweets, including giant versions of some of your favorite candies — think 5-pound gummy bears and 1-pound peanut butter cups! You’ll find IT’SUGAR at both Broadway at the Beach and Barefoot Landing.

Sugar Life

This sweet candy (and ice cream) bar is located at 2016 North King’s Highway in Myrtle Beach, and is floor to ceiling sugar! Customize your candy mix with everything your heart desires, including gummy bears, jawbreakers, jellybeans and more.

Candy Barrel

This old-fashioned candy store is located at Tanger Outlets on Highway 501, and as the name implies, features barrels filled with bulk candy. Nostalgic options include Atomic Fireballs, Mary Janes, Lemonheads, Bit-O-Honey, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and Root Beer Barrels — of course!
