Since 1896

Longevity is the best sign that a business is not only a good business but when it's a small business you know it's absolutely adored. That's definitely the case with The Goldenrod in York Beach, Maine.

The Goldenrod initially gained popularity thanks to the first electric trains coming through the area a year after they opened according to their website.

"Goldenrod Kisses"

The Goldenrod is known for their taffy lovingly named "Goldenrod Kisses". Well over a century later and locals and tourists still flock to York Beach for their taffy.

In fact, The Goldenrod has a giant window where you can stand outside and watch the taffy-making process. Approximately 8 million "Kisses" are made a year.
