Salty Peanut Salt Water TaffyMADE BY SALTY ROAD IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
If only our childhood selves knew that the boxes of dubiously flavored, machine-pulled stuff foisted off as salt water taffy on every boardwalk coast-to-coast weren’t worth the calories (or the lockjaw). Fortunately for our more discriminate selves, Brooklyn-based Marisa Wu is righting such wrongs by adding back what the souvenir imposters lack – natural flavors, a toothsome hand-pulled texture, and sea salt that you can actually taste.
This salty peanut taffy is the ultimate balance of salt and sweet. Infused with local honey from New York's Union Square Market, mixed with creamy peanut butter, a hint of vanilla and lots of coarse-ground sea salt, this is pure peanut heaven and the perfect snack – a little sweet, a little salty and (yes) some protein to keep you going.
