Blog

Well Hi everyone! It’s been awhile since we posted anything on our blog. So let’s get back in the swing of things and catch you all up on what’s new, what’s happening and what’s soon to be. One of our top sellers this summer has been the milk chocolate sea salt popcorn. How can you possibly go wrong with chocolate and sea salt combo? With the smooth milk chocolate and the splash of sea salt covered with the fluffiness of the popcorn it’s a guaranteed wow factor. This is a bulk item. By all means ask any employee where they are located and come get a few or as much as you would like. I always thought chocolate was chocolate until my job was to bring in the top premium chocolates. My sister, and my boss…..COOL (BTW)…..told me what she expected and what she wanted but that alone is a story all by it’s self. We always appreciate your business and we will see you soon.

Always, Sheryl

Perfect combo

Turkish Taffy

Turkish Taffy

Turkish Taffy actually isn’t Turkish, and technically, it isn’t taffy either. The Bonomo Company, founded by Albert J Bonomo, set up shop in Coney Island, New York in 1897 after he emigrated from Turkey. Since the taffy was created in the Bonomo factory after World War II that would mean it was made in America and thus not Turkish. In addition the taffy was really made of substance called ‘short nougat’, technically making it not taffy. Either way the catchy name stuck and the candy became increasingly popular, particularly because of how cheap it was sold. In 1989 the candy was discontinued but in 2010 Turkish Taffy was back in business! Come to Sweet Tooth today to try some for yourself!
