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.

“The best organic turkish figs i have ever had! They ship so quickly and I receive the orders as swiftly. The dark chocolate covered goji berries were a hit, even for my finicky husband and the salt water taffy gift to my landlords elicited a huge smile. We love the new packaging too! Thank you Nuts.com!”

“I ordered taffy On the 27th and was delivered on the 28th or so UPS tracking said. They just delivered today (29th). Great taffy and a little surprise inside!”

“Hi Nutty Folks,
Yes, I did receive my shipment of taffy this afternoon. I don't know which I enjoyed the most.....the box or the candy. Both are fun! I have tried as many pieces as my body will allow in one day. They are all creamy and I am sure I will enjoy them. My husband; however, snatched the nuts you provided as a nice surprise. I did not get even one. Oh well.....I know where they came from and can order some later.
Thanks for the quick delivery! I love home made fudge, but didn't dare try that right now. It is in the 80's today.
