During the summer of 2011, friends had opened an organic produce stand in Far Rockaway beach and couldn’t find a locally made taffy. Melissa jumped at the chance to put her own spin on the chewy nostalgic sweet... and it was love at first pull! She wanted this taffy to be different so she decided to use natural flavorings like real vanilla beans, fruit purees, spices and large-grain sea salt. The candy came out flavorful and creamy like a milkshake with a distinct salt crystal crunch--this was not your average SALT WATER TAFFY.
And Salty Road was born! To her surprise, she soon discovered that they were the first and only taffy makers in New York City! She's come a long way from hand-pulling in a tiny Brooklyn apartment, but still gets just as excited crafting new flavors as she did the very first batch.
