Factoids

Where did the name "salt water taffy" come from

The classic American confection got its name from the tradition of being sold by the seashore. Earliest signs of its use point to a legendary incident on the Jersey shore in the early 1900s, where a candy store owner, David Bradley, is mentioned to have coined the phrase “salt water taffy”. He used the term to describe what he had available to sell after opening up shop the day after a flooding storm that damaged his products for sale.

How is salt water taffy made!

Salt water taffy from Taffy Town is produced through a very unique, specific process. We start by boiling sugars in a large copper kettle to a high temperature. Then we take the supersaturated mass and aerate it, which captures tiny bubbles in the candy to give it that soft, “melt-in-your-mouth” texture. To aerate our taffy, we whip egg whites into the mixture. After that, our salt water taffy is shaped, cut into small pieces, packaged, and shipped to customers and retailers nationwide! 

Does salt water taffy contain dairy!

Taffy Town taffy is unique from traditional taffy recipes in that it indeed uses evaporated milk in its process for a richer, creamier candy piece. While not quite dairy free, salt water taffy from Taffy Town is tree nut, peanut, soy allergen free & gluten free! Additionally, many of our salt water taffy flavors come in both regular and sugar-free options for a candy that fits every preference.
