Taffy is a soft and chewy boiled candy that is pulled and pulled until it is just the right consistency. It's usually stretched into long strands while it's cooling. The ropes are then cut into bite sized pieces and wrapped in wax paper. Another kind of taffy is rolled out flat into large pieces, almost as thin as paper. This delicious candy is made of sugar, cornstarch, corn syrup, glycerine, water, butter, salt, flavor, and food color.
Saltwater Taffy became popular in the late 1800's on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in New Jersey. It became synonymous with seaside communities and a trip to the beach. Today it's available throughout the United States and can be purchased hundreds of miles from the beach.
