All About The Buzz on Broadway!
The Buzz on Broadway features many of the great candies from your childhood and there are lots more great candies being stocked weekly!
Way back in 2002 when we opened our tiny store, our candies were in big barrels.
Taffy was the main attraction, and we shopped for the very best quality we could find. Our taffy is whipped instead of pulled,
so it’s easier to eat! And the flavor is outstanding!
When our customers started to ask about different candies from their childhood, the challenge was on to find sources for those products.
Having grown up in a mom and pop Grocery store in Yakima, Steve very familiar with the old time treats.
We found great old time candy bars like Abba Zabba and Rocky Road. Carolyn had worked for a large candy company in Portland, Oregon,
and she still had quite a few contacts in the candy world. Then, other folks were reminiscing about some of the great candies they had enjoyed in England. And voila…we started stocking Flake and Aero bars. So really, it‘s thanks to our great customers
that we have such a fabulous selection of candy treats at The Buzz.
Steve and Carolyn weren’t big fans of licorice, but the requests started and soon our licorice selection included Australian,
Dutch, German and Finnish licorice! We had to try it to describe it and discovered that licorice can be really delicious!
It wasn’t long before we were bursting at the seams in our tiny retail space! Four years to the day that we opened our store on May 18, 2002,
we moved across the street to a brand spanking new retail space! A whole lot of planning went into that and the result was
a very colorful, brightly lit space, once again filled to the brim with exciting candies! Our motto is “if you can’t eat it, we don’t sell it”.
When people walk into our store for the first time, they seem to turn into children! The memories of childhood treats and stories
connected to great times are discussed. Over and over we hear “Oh I haven’t seen these since I was a kid!”
The Buzz store featured 200 candy bins full of wrapped candies including licorice, hard candies, taffy and other favorites.
There are scoop bins that contain mostly unwrapped candies and that is also where a great selection of licorice is found!
A huge section of wall is consumed by Jelly Belly Gourmet Jelly Beans and there are rows and rows of novelty candies, peg bags,
candy bars and even caramel corn!
Part of the old time feel is found in the great selection of old time soda pop!
Remember Pop Shoppe? We feature 8 flavors! Our soda selection is in glass bottles and refrigerated in our big ol’ coolers.
We also have 18 feet of chocolate counter filled with luscious chocolates and nearly 50 flavors of truffles.
You will find a delicious treat for everyone because the variety is vast! Soft centers, caramels, nuts, mints, peanut butter…
you will find what you want here!
Step up to our fudge counter for a sample of our great homemade fudge! It’s all made right here and again, the variety is amazing!
There will be something for everyone on your list.
The owners, Steve and Carolyn, met online in 2000! Each of them had business and retail experience and most important
they shared an interest in candies, so it was natural for them to open a candy store.
The Buzz on Broadway is a funny name. Initially, we came up with boring names, but we wanted something with pizzazz.
Carolyn used to own a wonderful dog named Buzzy. And once word got around town that yet another candy store was opening,
“The Buzz” seemed like the perfect name!
We are thrilled to be located in the little town of Seaside. With our long stretch of white sandy beach, old time promenade
for strolling and a fun family atmosphere, this is a lovely place to live, shop and be in business!
