National Taffy Day

calcMay 23, 2023

Happy Taffy Day!

Here at OATI we love ourselves some candy, but nothing beats the delectable tang of taffy.

Did you know that the famous “Salt-Water Taffy” candy isn’t actually made with salt water?

Reportedly, the story goes that a storm hit the coast of Atlantic City, New Jersey in 1883 and flooded the boardwalk. This led to the flooding of a candy store owner’s entire stock of taffy and when asked if he had any candy left he jokingly stated he only had “salt water taffy.” The name took off from there and became a staple in households and candy stores everywhere.
