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.

Thank you.”

“I just received my order of salt water taffy.They are sooooo goooood. It tastes like it was just pulled. Reminds me of the ocean. My dad loves salt water taffy too, so when I found out that you stocked it I ordered him a bag too. You guys sell some amazing tasting candies, dried fruits and of course nuts. The best stuff on earth is from the nutty people.”

“What can I say I love everything that I bought and I'm so happy that it arrived waiting on the table for me less then 24 hours later. The taffy is wonderful not to sweet and packed with flavor. I have searched high and low for sun dried tomatoes and got sweet and tangy pound from here. The jerky is some of the best I've ever had and I can't thank you enough for the raw sunflower seeds. It's darn near imposable to find good seed or nut treats for my rats that aren't coated in salt! This is the best site that I've ever randomly came across and I will be back!”

“It has been 20 years since we have been anywhere near true saltwater Taffy. My mother opened her gift took her some out took a bite and I saw years melt away.

You made my mom's mothers day very special for her and me.
