Cheapism.com has an idea in their list of The Best Dessert in Each State. Keep in mind, this is Cheapism we're talking about - so don't expect any expensive, decadent desserts like crème brûlée or gourmet chocolate strawberries.

So what is the best cheap dessert in New Jersey, and where can you find it? Here's a hint: Think the shore.

According to Cheapism, salt water taffies are the best desserts in New Jersey - a quintessential Jersey Shore treat:

"Salt water taffy is the Jersey Shore’s most popular souvenir, and the chewy sweets got their start in Atlantic City in the late 19th century. The taffy gets pulled by hand to give it its signature texture, and today it can be found in a range of colors and flavors."

Best place to try it? They say it's Shriver's Salt Water Taffy & Fudge in Ocean City - the oldest business on the boardwalk! So they know a thing or two about what they're doing!

Besides salt water taffy, they also have varieties of delicious fudge, macaroons and chocolates!

What do you think? Personally, I'm neutral about salt water taffies. I think water ice would be a better choice for New Jersey's best cheap dessert.
