I don’t know about you, but I love salt water taffy! The problem is when you buy salt water taffy it isn’t always soft, creamy or flavorful. I’ve bought some that was so hard I almost couldn’t eat it. I’ve had some that – simply put – had no flavor at all. In fact, I had almost decided the only way to have good salt water taffy was to make it myself – that is until I tried Anastasia Confections Salt Water Taffy. It was so soft, creamy and full of flavor that I ate the entire bag in a single day. I wasn’t limited to just a couple of flavors of salt water taffy either. Anastasia Confections produces over 59 different flavors of salt water taffy and their 3 pound bag comes with a huge variety of those flavors.
For those who love salt water taffy – especially during the holiday season, there are seasonal flavors like candy corn, pumpkin pie, eggnog and gingerbread that are available from September through December. There are sour varieties for those who prefer a sour candy. Flavors such as sour apple, sour grape and sour lemon are available year-round. Then there are the everyday favorites, available year-round, such as black licorice, bubble gum, cherry, chocolate, cinnamon, orange, peppermint, pina colada, pink lemonade, root beer float, strawberry cheesecake, watermelon and many more. These are just a few of the flavors I really enjoyed.
If you’re like me and it’s been a while since you’ve had really good, flavorful salt water taffy, I encourage you to check out the Anastasia Confections website May 23 is National Taffy Day and what better way to celebrate than by eating salt water taffy! and they do ship. If you’re concerned about the product melting during shipment, don’t be. They do sell a cool pack they can put in without your shipment. Just request that at checkout.
While you are on their website, be sure to look at their world famous coconut patties which are available in seven different flavors. I tried one of these two and was very impressed with the taste and texture.
The recipes that are used by Anastasia Confections to make their salt water taffy are time tested, proven recipes that contain no actual salt water. In fact, taffy never contained salt water. The name salt water taffy came about in Atlantic City during the 1890’s when a storm caused a merchant’s store to flood and told a young customer that he only had “salt water” taffy. That name stuck and is still used to this day.
