Think of the best salt water taffy you’ve had. Now, forget about it…because you obviously haven’t had one from Salty Road, another company on my October Brooklyn Candy list.
I think the goal of each new company making something that already exists, is to make it better than other products out there. Salty Road, well done. Starting off by hand-pulling the taffy out of an apartment, they’ve definitely perfected it. There are a number of unique flavors, and I chose Salty Carmel Apple.
Let’s start with the texture. I would say similar to most taffies, but, a bit smoother and creamier. Now, let’s talk about taste. Oh. Sweet. Jesus. This little taffy is packed with flavor, I thought I was eating a miniature apple pie, no joke. Rich in flavor, you get hit with apple and cinnamon, and then discover little tiny bursts of saltiness. The apple, cinnamon, salt…yup, apple pie.
The biggest problem, it’s hard to stop after just one.
