NATIONAL TAFFY DAY

May 23rd was made for mouth-watering deliciousness. It’s National Taffy Day!  Taffy candy has been made and sold for many years and has become a favorite souvenir of many vacationers.

Salt water taffy in was invented 1883 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

This confection is made with boiled sugar and butter that is stretched and pulled until it is a chewy consistency that can be rolled and cut. The flavors range from buttery to tart to sweet.  There is something for everyone. Taffy’s colorful displays have tantalized children and adults alike for generations.  And, since today is also Lucky Penny Day, it was also one of the penny candies that once could be bought for a cent.
