The classic American confection got its name from the tradition of being sold by the seashore. Earliest signs of its use point to a legendary incident on the Jersey shore in the early 1900s, where a candy store owner, David Bradley, is mentioned to have coined the phrase “salt water taffy”. He used the term to describe what he had available to sell after opening up shop the day after a flooding storm that damaged his products for sale. Salt water taffy isn’t made with salt water, but the name stuck!
