Salty Road is a company that loves to create salt water taffy with no artificial flavors or colors. We have taken has created recipes with all natural flavorings for taffy including vanilla beans, peanut butter, spices and fruit concentrates. We also add sea salt to all of our taffy. This does three things:
1. Salt is one of the only two natural flavor enhancers - so it naturally brings out the flavor of the real vanilla beans, spices, and fruit concentrates that we put in our taffy.
2. It balances the natural sweetness of the candy.
3. Adds a bit of crunch to the chew.
There is an old Chinese tradition of giving a piece of candy away at funerals. Sweet to take away some of the bitterness. Life can be rough, and I wanted to create a company that might make everyday a little sweeter.
