About Us

A visit to Utah would not be entirely complete without some of our Old Fashioned Salt Water Taffy. The Chocolate Covered Wagon has been known for wonderful salt water taffy for years.  Over 30 years to be exact.

Many ask, "Why is Old Fashioned Salt Water Taffy so famous or popular?" and "why Utah?"

Over 150 years ago Mormon pioneers settled the Salt Lake Valley. In Utah, when the words old fashioned are mentioned pioneers also come to mind. Utah is known for industry and hard work.

The Great Salt Lake is one of the natural wonders of the world being generally four to five times more salty than the ocean. In drought years from six to eight times more salty than the ocean. It was discovered by fur trappers in the 1820's.

The combination of the Mormon pioneers and the Great Salt Lake make Salt Lake City a great setting for the best Old Fashioned Salt Water Taffy in the world.

Why is it the best? Our wonderful customers tell us.

Our secret recipe is made from only the finest ingredients. We use an old style puller to pull the taffy and each piece is still wrapped by hand. We use no preservatives and whenever possible we use natural flavorings and colorings.

Our Old Fashioned Salt Water Taffy is what the Chocolate Covered Wagon is best known for.  We also sell a wide variety of other items. We make wonderful Country Caramel, Sweet Cream and Butter Fudge, Gourmet Caramel Corn, Gourmet Toffee Popcorn, and wonderful White Chocolate Popcorn.  Our out of this world Caramel Apples, are fast becoming a rising star of the candies we sell.  Our one month record of caramel apples sold is over 17,000.   We're hoping to beat that record next year.  We have many other unique chocolate and caramel creations as well.  We are proud of all of our secret recipes and try to use only the finest ingredients.   Chocolate-Mmmmm!

We are proud to have founded the Chocolate Covered Wagon.  We were located in Historic Trolley Square, Salt Lake City for over 28 years.  In June of 2014 we relocated that store to Historic Gardner Village, 1100 West 7800 South, West Jordan.  Our other location is in Sandy, Utah, 2065 East 9400 South, and has been in that location for over 20 years. The Sandy location is not far from the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon, home of the ski resorts Snowbird and Alta.  Both locations are in beautiful settings.

In February 2002 there was a Winter Olympic Pin created and crafted after of our salt water taffy. It was chosen to be the number 13th most popular Olympic Pin for our Salt Lake City, Winter, Olympics.
