I love one flavor of salt water taffy: peppermint.
I tolerate another: vanilla.
I believe that all other salt water taffy has been created equally: nasty.
While on my personal vacation in Rockport, MA, I happened upon Tuck’s Candies (where they make their own salt water taffy) and thought that I should check out my salt water taffy beliefs to ensure that they still held true.
They do, but I must say that Tuck’s has some of the finest peppermint salt water taffy that I have ever tasted (and that is saying a lot!!). Yum and thank you, Tuck’s!
I also was thrilled to see that they have a window view of their salt water taffy making process. I think that more candy shops should do this as we all want to know how they make the candy.
I realize that the photo is a bit flawed, but you get the point!
Would I buy their salt water taffy again? Indeed – and I did go back for round two.
In case you are wondering, they do have an online store and will ship just about anywhere. Click here to get to their website.
