Pony Tails Candy Company

To our beloved customers and Chincoteague community,
Thank you very much for all of your support this crazy year. We have loved seeing our new and returning customers and have appreciated all of the love that has been shown to our small business. Unfortunately, our business has endured many bumps and bruises throughout the season, forcing us to step back and analyze the future of Pony Tails. We have decided that our business will close its doors indefinitely on Sunday September 27th, after 55 iconic years on Chincoteague Island. Until then, our doors will be open for business Thursdays through Sundays from 11 until 5. We will be liquidating our inventory throughout the month, so please stay tuned for our sale information.
Thank you very much for your understanding during this difficult time.

We are heartbroken and will miss you all.


Pony Tails Candy store is Chincoteague’s one stop shop! Come in for our famous homemade salt water taffy, coined “Pony Tails”, because of the resemblance of the taffy shape to the tails of Assateague Islands famous ponies. Stock up on our delicious made-in-house creamery fudge, handmade chocolates, gummies, and novelty candy that will take you back to your childhood. We have the only penny press on the island – with 4 exclusive designs and feature jewelry, home decor, toys, the largest plush pony collection on the Shore and great gift items for all ages and every budget.

Pony Tails Candy Company’s History

Opened by the late Ralph and Lois Daisey and sold in 2006 to the Dolle candy making family from Ocean City, the original recipe of Pony Tails salt water taffy is still used and the flavor offerings have been expanded as well. Having the taffy puller out in the open back in the day was a favorite of longtime customers, but with the increased volume of the taffy sold, the required building codes and the need to provide a safe, sanitary location for highly specialized candy manufacturing, the machine was moved to the Dolle’s manufacturing facility in Ocean City.

Next time you are in the area, stop in and say hi and grab a sample of our delicious salt water taffy. Can’t make it to Chincoteague? You can shop in our online store and have it shipped from our shore to your door! VISIT

Peace. Love. Ponies.
