Taffy is a type of candy that is usually soft, chewy, and sweet. It is made by mixing sugar, corn syrup, and butter or vegetable oil, then heating the mixture to a high temperature. Once the mixture has reached the desired temperature, it is poured onto a flat surface and allowed to cool. The cooled candy is then stretched and pulled until it becomes light and fluffy, giving it its characteristic texture.
Taffy comes in a variety of flavors, including fruit flavors like strawberry, raspberry, and watermelon, as well as other flavors like vanilla, chocolate, and caramel. It is often sold in individually wrapped pieces, and is popular as a treat for both children and adults.
Taffy has a long history, dating back to the early 19th century in the United States. It was originally made by hand, and was a popular treat at seaside resorts and boardwalks. Today, taffy is still a popular candy, and can be found in candy stores, supermarkets, and online retailers around the world.
