Chocolates for Valentine’s Day? A classic! But maybe…more cliche than classic. For showing your beloved a small yet everlasting token of your affections this Valentine’s Day, we turn our cravings to the buttery delights of another old-fashioned confection: salt water taffies!
Although the origin of salt water taffy is mythical, we know that it grew in popularity as a boardwalk treat strolling about the beaches of Jersey Shore at the turn of the 20th Century. Taffy can now be found anywhere, in any candy store, and still remains popular among coastal destinations from New England to Southern California. We’ve wrapped up our personal favorites to dole out on Happy Hearts Day, featuring a variety of flavors that best give off that feeling of love. From soda fountain desserts to Victorian notes of rose, you’ll be glad you gifted a sweet so unique yet just as sentimental– and tasty– as any other chocolate!
You can find these delicious flavors and more at Candy Baron!
