SC loves all thing pink and green and my bff Lisa politely supplies me with pink and green taffy for all of my events. It is so yummy I had to share my interview with her! Click here to see more
You've been called the taffy princess, how long has your family been making sweets? We have been confectioners for many generations. My german born great great grandfather and grandfather brought their candy making knowledge to the United States in the 1800's. They had Dairy Maid, a chocolate factory and retail outlet in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. My grandfather used to tell us stories of working with his father and grandfather on Christmas Day delivering sweets and ice cream molds to customers by horse and buggy. My grandfather and his three brothers bought the James' Salt Water Taffy in the 1940's. My father eventually took over and then acquired Fralinger's Salt Water Taffy in the 1990's and Bayard's Chocolates in 2004.
I know the answer but since I love it so much what is your most popular flavor? Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate! Then vanilla, strawberry and banana are all a close second.
We make custom pink and green taffy gift bags for all of my book clubs and preppy parties! Do you do similar items that are very user friendly as gifts of for events that I need to know about? Our customers are very creative with themed gift ideas. Our taffy can be purchased by your favorite flavor or color in our stores in bulk or ordered on line. Recently a bride took several pieces of taffy, placed them in an open shell and then wrapped it in netting for favors. They looked beautiful.
Taffy makes a great hostess gift and decor at a catered affair. Am I missing other ways to use it? You are correct; three years ago Redbook named our taffy as one of its "top hostess gifts." They can be great teacher gifts as well and are always appreciated at the holidays. Who doesn't want a little taste of summer in the winter?
Thank you Lisa!
