Atlantic City: Then and Now
National Taffy Day (1882)
-- The origins of taffy is often debated, but this chewy candy has been part of American life since the late 1800s. Saltwater taffy was created in Atlantic City in 1883 by a shopkeeper on the boardwalk named David Bradley. In 1883, a storm surge flooded Bradley's store and covered his candy inventory in seawater, the day after the storm he was cleaning up when a girl entered the store and asked for a bag of taffy. With sarcasm, he told the girl to help herself to his saltwater taffy, and the name stuck.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
