I Was Wrong, Hudson Valley Summer Does Have a Seasonal Candy
So it isn't very often that I have to correct something I wrote but I would like to go on the recorded that a month or so back I may have given out some wrong information. With Easter ending I proclaimed the end of the Seasonal candy season and it seems I may have been mistaken, Okay fine, Wrong
I was sure that the seasonal candy season started with Halloween went thru Christmas, Valentine's Day and wrapped with us all eating ourselves sick with our Easter baskets full of Reese's eggs. I went so far as to say that the season candy isle in the grocery store would have to take a hiatus until August when I expect we will see the next round of Halloween candy.
Seems logical right? No more seasonal candy until Halloween rolled around again but nope that is not true. I rounded the seasonal candy isle assuming that it would be filled with regular candy with generic wrappers and I was wrong. Waiting for me was shelves full of summer themed candy front and foremost salt water taffy.
How could I have forgotten about salt water taffy? As a kid I had to wait all year to get it when we were on summer vacation at the beach. My favorite flavor was banana. I even lost a tooth to salt water taffy one summer. The tooth fairy got a very sticky tooth that time around.
So I am taking back my statement about seasonal candy it turn out there is a summer candy and it is so popular it has a National Day. National Taffy Day is on the calendar for this Sunday. Fun fact from the National Day folks, salt water taffy was invented in 1883 in Atlantic City.
