Sayklly's Salt Water Taffy
Sayklly's Candies, Escanaba and Marquette;
Since 1906, Sayklly's has been catering to Yoopers' sweet tooths. Today, its offerings include not just those big, boxed candies given on Valentine's day but fudges, dark sea salt caramels, milk peanut clusters, milk pecan "snappies," chocolate drops, peanut brittle, and "Yooper Trail Mix."

Flavors include banana, chocolate, grape, maple, vanilla, mint, cherry, orange, and even anise.
