Fun Food Holidays™ May 23rd is National Taffy Day

National Taffy Day

Taffy is a sweet treat made from boiling together sugar, corn syrup, water, butter, with flavorings and colorings. The mixture is then pulled and stretched and folded back over itself, and then re-stretched again until it is fluffy. Salt water taffy is the most common taffy, which originated in Atlantic City. It is called such because it originally contained a small amount of salt water in the mixture.

The flavors of taffy are endless. Most common are fruit flavors, but we even have a recipe for Habanero Salt Water Taffy!
