Celebrate National Taffy Day and kick off Summer at Pearls Candy NH

New Salt Water Taffy flavors are in stock. Yum – 18 flavors! The exact history of how taffy came to be is still a mystery. But taffy has been part of American life since the late 1800s, and has been a beach-side tradition since it appeared in Atlantic City more than 100 years ago. Some say taffy appeared in the Midwest at county fairs even earlier. However, Atlantic City is known as the home of salt water taffy. Being from New England though, I still think our recipe is the best. 😁 What do you think?

Celebrate National Taffy Day – May 23, 2019!
