saltwater taffy  
a gift, from my big brother sam. :)



i'd been wanting to taste a piece of [saltwater taffy] for the longest time. back in early days of building the subtitling department for the company, synn and i were learning a subtitling software from scratch. our very first exercise was a tutorial-program about three types of yummy bites in the united states: nathan's hotdogs, deep-fried conch, and saltwater taffy.

after many hours of staring at mouth-watering scenes of saltwater taffy from production to consumption, i was convinced that i wanted some. however, it wasn't an easy candy to find. even friends living in the united states found it difficult to hunt down.

i met sam for a quick ketchup one evening and he presented me with my very first bag of saltwater taffy. :) :) :)

it tastes as good as i imagined it would. am now rationing my precious taffy by eating one piece every couple of days...

 
 
feelin': thankfulthankful

hi there,
i came by your site via ickleoriental's :} and just wanted to let you know that salt water taffy is more an East Coast (read New York, cape cod, boston) thing that was maybe why your other US-based friends might have some difficulty finding them.

on my end, i think they taste weird-- like chewy, licorice-flavoured marshmallow.. ;p

ps-- Vanessa Frida is my pri/sec pal!

thanks for the tip! i will notify the new-yorkers for assistance then! actually i hate licorice... i love the fruity ones though. the one i had just now was a peanut butter one. it rocked. :)

ps. have you made contact with ness? what a small world! :D i wish i could find more of my primary school folk.

This is how goondu i am...been to NYC twice, both times for at least a month, and I never saw them!!! Darn it!!

it's a sweet super-chewy chewy with a slight hint of saltiness. :) mostly sweet really, like normal taffy?

icklemonsterickleoriental on September 13th, 2006 02:25 am (UTC)
omg, i've never tried salt water taffy! is it good?
JV: leaf116drag0nette on September 13th, 2006 07:43 am (UTC)
it's awesome!

it's super sticky and super chewy and sticks to your teeth so you can't help but do this weird munching jaw action! :) and the flavours rock! i don't know what each one is until it's in my mouth, but they're all extremely yummy so far!
icklemonsterickleoriental on September 13th, 2006 07:47 am (UTC)
nice icon!

but is it salty?
JV: leaf116drag0nette on September 13th, 2006 07:55 am (UTC)

it's still more sweet than salty! just a hint of saltiness! :)

ps. thanks babe! your icon also damned cute!
