Salt Water Taffy

If you’ve ever taken a trip down the Jersey Shore, you probably bought some tasty salt water taffy on the boardwalk. Since the 1880s, salt water taffy has spread from its birthplace in Atlantic City, New Jersey throughout North America, as more people have discovered this popular confection. Brings back all of those summer Boardwalk memories.

As it happens, saltwater taffy doesn’t contain any salt water (and not much salt or water either). The legend goes that salt water taffy was invented by an Atlantic City candy shop owner named Bradley, whose boardwalk store was flooded one summer. The next day, when a girl walked into the store and asked for taffy, Bradley sarcastically referred to it as “salt water taffy.” The name caught on, and although nobody has added saltwater to taffy since, salt water taffy has been sold on the Jersey Shore until today.

Our old fashioned salt water taffy comes in an array of colors and flavors such as Peach, Banana, Raspberry, Watermelon, Blueberry, Chocolate, Maple, Strawberry, Orange, and Neapolitan.

Nice and sweet tasting. Lots of different flavors to choose from. A little bit sticky.

Texture was excellent. Freshness, always a big problem with taffy, was spot-on. But flavor was a bit acidic, instead of the "smoothness" I prefer. I think it came from too much flavor added. Happened with many of the fruit flavors. The chocolates and vanillas, on the otherhand, were great!
