Taffy Addiction Delemma - [Moab, Utah]

Hi iL Divo,
I can't believe after a year I am still getting feedback on this question. I think salt water taffy is one of those sweet chewy treats that makes us regress back to childhood. I recently vacationed in South Dakota and found some pretty good taffy there but nothing like the stuff my friend brought back from Moab. And I too purchased a good amount of hand selected flavors. I think I walked ou of the taffy shop in Keystone with about 2 pounds of taffy. I'm sure my dentist is thrilled with my addiction as it gives him job security. Now, if you are going to Salt Lake City, Utah you are going to be traveling through the heart of Salt Water Taffy nervana. I do believe Salt Lake City prides itself on it's taffy. Outside of the Jersey Shore and the West Coast vendors like San Francisco, SLC is HUGE on vending in the Salt Water Taffy trades. I know at some point I've had theirs, but none other have stuck with me like the taffy I had from Moab. Hope your trip is awesome and you find some yummy treats for you and your sweetheart!

Thanks for the tip Claire, however, I'm at a bit of a geograpical disadvatage since I am in Indiana, LOL. Was hoping to possibly find the company who reps the taffy and mail order from them. I have ordered online from a place called the Taffy Shop (not sure if its the same - their wrappers say taffytown on them) and their's was very disappointing. They are out of a different city though. Is Estes Park in Moab??

MOAB, UTAH: Where do I get More Salt Water Taffy

Please FORGIVE my oversight on my original post. I have had such GREAT success with CHOW HOUND in the past that I did NOT see the "Sticky Topics" section specific to the Mountian States. SO . . .

IN REGARD TO TAFFY ADDICTION DILEMMA:
Recently a friend visited MOAB, UTAH and brought back a bag of Salt Water Taffy from a gift shop there for the office to share. The taffy was made exclusively for Moab and had the name of the town on the bag. To a taffy addict like me, this was THE BEST TAFFY I have ever eaten. However, before I could glean the name of the manufacturer from the wrapping, some neat freak in our office took the last few pieces, left them in a candy dish and disposed of the bag. GURRR!!!!! Can ANYONE out there in Chow Hound land help me with this mystery?? BEST TAFFY EVER!!!!!!!! VELVETY Soft - EVERY flavor discernable from the next - MELTS in your mouth. I DREAM of this taffy. HELP!!!!

WOW! I was so convinced they were actually IN New Orleans. Thanks for "debunking" that for me. How disapointing, though!! What a bummer. They talked up New Orlean's the entire movie. What a total shame they didn't actually film there. N.O. could not only offer the great scenery, they could use the free press after Katrina. Thanks again. I guess when we swing through Savannah we'll have to keep an eye open to see if we spot the locale.

The movie was called 'My Future Boyfriend" on the ABC Family channel. They were denfinately on a bridge because you could see a thick cement railing rounded out like an overlook behind them with a narrow body of water in the background. It was very charming.

I recently watched a movie that had an adorable outdoor cafe situated on what looked like a bridge. It had little wrought iron tables and chairs and served fresh coffee and beignets. The actors referred to it as Cafe Du Lac (Lock), Anyone ever heard of it or know what or where I am talking about in New Orlean's? We would love to visit when we are done in October.
