    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    I love salt water taffy, and always pick up some when I go to the beach... Here is a GREAT recipe for those who would like to make your own! Serving size depends on how lg. you cut your pieces. I love using peppermint, and mint flavoring. Sometimes I also mix in finely chopped nuts to the taffy at the end of the pulling, depending on what kind I am making. Experiment with your favorite choices... It's a REAL TREAT!
