Salt Water Taffy: The Ultimate Summer Candy

Ah salt water taffy. From our grandparent’s candy dish to gift baskets here and there, salt water taffy is a summer candy staple. But do you know about its accidental start?

Summer Salt Water Taffy in Bulk | BlairCandy.com

According to many historians, salt water taffy was an accidental creation in candy store owner David Bradley’s shop in 1883. His Atlantic City, New Jersey shop had been flooded during a major storm and water had completely soaked his stock of taffy. Later, a young girl came into the shop and asked if any taffy was for sale. He jokingly offered her the “salt water taffy” and the rest was history.

After that, it became a main summer candy on the east coast boardwalks. It was so lucrative, that there was actually a Supreme Court decision in 1921 over a dispute on improvements to taffy pulling machines. Until then, candy shops could only make about 300lbs a day by hand. With a machine, they could make roughly 10,000lbs. Now, candy shops roughly make five times that amount, annually.

Salt Water Taffy has been a summer treat mainly because it didn’t melt, making it a perfect candy among the summer resorts. Some of these “antique” candy stores are still in business selling the same taffy creations from the past.

We bet you’re craving a piece of taffy now! To learn more about the history of salt water taffy, visit the Smithsonian and Mental Floss for more. Visit BlairCandy.com for an assortment of salt water taffy in bulk and other sizes. Just be sure you have enough to last you all summer!

Buffet Candy Ideas for Your Summer Bash

Summer parties are in full swing and you may be thinking about a candy buffet for your get together. Summer candy buffets can be even more fun because of the colors, types of candy, and even how you present your candy. Here are some things we love to do with buffet candy during the summer months:

Buffet Candy for Summer | BlairCandy.com

First, you should definitely take advantage of the fun gummy candy that is out this time of year. Sharks, fish, turtles, octopi, even frogs are ready to go on display and be enjoyed by kids (and adults) of all ages. Ditch the gummy peach rings and make your gummy candy really nautical.

Second, stay away from some chocolates during the warm summer months. No one wants melted chocolate unless it’s on a sundae.  To add some kind of chocolate element, consider chocolates with a candy shell on the outside, like Sixlets or M&M’s.

Finally, consider some candy toys or novelty treats to add. Not only do you have another candy option on the table, but they also double as decoration. Also, you can really tailor this to the theme of your party.

The buffet candy options are endless at BlairCandy.com! Find classic staples in summery colors or go crazy with something unique. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to have the most talked about party on the block!

It’s Almost National Gummy Worm Day!

gummy candyJuly 15th is National Gummy Work Day! Gummy worms are a candy that everyone loves, either in regular or sour forms. Eat individually, add to Jell-O, or to a famous dirt pudding and they’re irresistible. So what’s the history behind this well-loved gummy candy?

According to candy historians, gummy worms originated in 1922 in Germany. However, it was candy maker Trolli who introduced them to the US in the 1980’s. But why worms? Apparently, Trolli wanted to make something “gross enough looking to shock parents and simultaneously attract children.”

While the rest is history, both Trolli and Haribo have their own versions of this creepy crawly gummy candy. Many worms are the combinations of flavors, making them striped. The most common combos are red/orange, red/white, and green/yellow. There are also the original gummy and sour sugar flavors that are both pretty popular.

Do you like gummy worms? Have a preference for sour vs. sweet? You can read more about your favorite treat here on the Huffington Post. Whichever you choose, we hope you have a Happy National Gummy Worm Day! Shop all of your favorites at BlairCandy.com and celebrate every day!
