Tropical assorted taffy

Mrs Fields Cookies (Central)

Thanks to Garycwm for getting me these Taffy.

The taffy were really nice and chewy, it was much softer than toffee.
The chocolate and lime tasted the best.

Apart from the Tropical assorted they also have other flavours but I like the tropical ones because they are colourful.

Taffy is a chewy candy similar to toffee, in the UK they are called chews.
The taffy is rolled, cut into small pastel-coloured pieces and wrapped in wax paper to keep it soft.

There is also salt water taffy that was accidentally invented due to a flood at a sweet shop in Atlanta City.
The sweet shop was flooded with Alantic Ocean water which ruined the candies.

When a young girl went into the shop and asked for taffy, they offered some "salt water taffy." At the time it was a joke, because all the taffy had been soaked with salt water, but the girl was delighted. She bought the candy and proudly walked down to the beach to show her friends.
