NATIONAL TAFFY DAY
National Taffy Day is celebrated annually on May 23. Taffy candy has been made and sold for many years and has become a popular souvenir of many vacationers.
“Taffy is made by stretching or pulling a sticky mass of boiled sugar, butter or vegetable oil, flavorings, and coloring until fluffy.” It is then rolled and cut into small pieces before it is wrapped in a waxed paper which keeps it soft. Taffy is noted for its fruit flavors however there are other flavors available as well, including licorice.
