Celebrate National Taffy Day with us! We are about to indulge ourselves in a bag of mixed flavored salt water taffy.

According to taffy history, it has been around since the 1880s when a candy shop on the Jersey Shore was flooded by the sea and all of the store's taffy was soaked in salt water. The shop's owner sold the taffy and saltwater taffy became a thing. Every time my parents took us to a port on the West Coast, we always got a bag of taffy.

The box of taffy that we sampled out of today was made in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
