Salt Water Taffy Bulk Wrapped
We carry a wide variety of soft and chewy bulk taffy such as saltwater taffy, holiday taffy and old fashioned flavored taffy. Salt water taffy has been around since the late 19th century. A candy store owner had his shop flooded with Atlantic salt water during a storm in 1883 and when a young girl came in looking for a treat, the store owner teased and offered her some "salt water taffy". The girl was thrilled and showed it to her mom and friends and, alas, a new confection called Salt water taffy was created. Hence, this tasty form of Taffy gained popularity around the turn of the century on the Atlantic City boardwalk and the recipe continues to call for a small amount of salt water in the mixture.
