May 23 is National Taffy Day. The chewy candy, associated with beaches and boardwalks, was invented in Atlantic City, N.J. in 1883.
Although Turkish taffy is neither taffy nor Turkish, I had to share this early 1960s commercial for Bonomo Turkish Taffy because of its catchy jingle to the tune of “Hey, Look Me Over!”
“You get chocolate, vanilla, strawberry too—even banana, doodle oodle oo.”
