Originally called Glade Candy Company, founded in 1916, the company was a full line candy manufacturer of hard candies, chocolates, taffy and jellies. In 1994, the 3rd generation company president, David Glade, found the family business excelling exclusively in the manufacture of their famous whipped style taffy. This was the candy that the firm originally started with and carried fame being from the city of the Great Salt Lake. Looking for a unique brand name to identify it’s candy, he decided to change the name of the company to Taffy Town, Inc., recognizing that Salt Lake City is a town famous for it's taffy.

Salt water taffy from Taffy Town is produced through a very unique, specific process. We start by boiling sugars in a large copper kettle to a high temperature. Then we take the supersaturated mass and aerate it, which captures tiny bubbles in the candy to give it that soft, “melt-in-your-mouth” texture. To aerate our taffy, we whip egg whites into the mixture. After that, our salt water taffy is shaped, cut into small pieces, packaged, and shipped to customers and retailers nationwide! To see more of our taffy production process, watch this video.

Each salt water taffy treat from Taffy Town weighs approximately 7 grams. A 7-gram piece of taffy contains about 27 calories.

Taffy Town taffy is unique from traditional taffy recipes in that it indeed uses evaporated milk in its process for a richer, creamier candy piece. While not quite dairy free, salt water taffy from Taffy Town is tree nut, peanut, soy allergen free & gluten free! Not even our Peanut Butter Taffy contains allergens! Additionally, many of our salt water taffy flavors come in both regular and sugar-free options for a candy that fits every preference.
