Candy lovers first fell in love with Salt Water Taffy some time ago, early in the 1880's. We've been eating it for over 125 years! Most famous for it's perfectly chewy, stretchy texture. Not to mention the sweet look of this stuff, some of the prettiest shades ever of pastel colours, Well, unless your eating the black licorice flavor! 

Salt Water Taffy has a Stormy Story

Despite Salt Water Taffy's name, there is no salt water in this taffy. It it was originally produced in Atlantic City, New Jersey. David Bradley who ran a candy store had a terrible flood after a huge storm and his entire stock of taffy became drenched. A little girl wandered in and asked him if he had any taffy for sale, he replied "you mean salt water taffy".David's mother heard him say "salt water taffy" and exclaimed to her son that "salt water taffy" was a perfect name for this taffy.The name has certainly stuck and is still one of the most popular, well known old fashion candies today. Taffy Town has some of the best Salt Water Taffy around, soft and chewy morsels of  pure happiness!
