OLD-FASHIONED SALT WATER TAFFY
...Do you know the taffy man?
In 1883, a storm hit Atlantic City and waves cleared the boardwalk and flooded several businesses with seawater, including a taffy stand owned by David Bradley. The next day a little girl asked for taffy and he sarcastically called it “salt water taffy” and the name stuck. Shriver’s has been operating on the Ocean City Boardwalk since 1898, hence the nostalgic package that makes it perfect for gifting. The 1-lb. box includes an assortment of 17 traditional flavors, including Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Grape, Peanut Butter, Licorice, Banana, Molasses, Molasses Mint, Orange, Lemon, Lime, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Teaberry, Spearmint, and Cinnamon. Give me some sugar.
It makes a winning hostess gift and joyous offering for the stocking.
