Taffy is a delectable treat on the west coast. It normally derives from the east coast and that’s where I have my best box of taffy, ever. Taffy contains sugar, butter, milk, and a little bit of flavoring that makes it a specific flavor of taffy. The make sets it into a pulling machine and it folds air into the taffy and makes it light and fluffy. In Mexico they make taffy but slinging it around a wooden pole and pulling it by hand. This method is not as sanitary but to me it possesses better taste for some reason.

Some taffies are so divine that it’s hard to stop eating. On the other hand some flavors possess wretched flavor. A sorrowful flavor is bubblegum or a taffy that is a neon looking color. When I bit into a candy of that standard I am immediately turned off. Today I had a few flavors, peanut butte, neopolitan, and bubblegum. To me my favorite flavor is peanut butter. In the taffy of the peanut butter flavor they put little dots of shinny looking taffy to make it look like a peanut shell. The flavor was rich and had no disturbing after taste. The neopolitan flavor was my second best. Neopolitan is three flavors in one, strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. When you bite into this flavor the strawberry is a little bit over powering but it is still delicious. My least favorite flavor was the bubblegum. Bubblegum tasted like that mouthwash that the dentist use in your mouth that they try to flavor to taste good but never do. Thats how disturbing bubblegum flavor is. Bubblegum also has a very sickening after taste that takes about three hours to get out of your mouth even if you have a soda or a strong mint. I enjoy salt water taffy over regular taffy any day. Thats my opinion about taffy.
