Banana Salt Water Taffy // Salty Road // Brooklyn, NY
Streets aren’t always paved, and the best grab-and-go food is often where the asphalt ends. We’re talking gravel lots, dirt alleys, and, of course, boardwalks. But as much of a beach side staple as salt water taffy is, when Salty Road’s founders set up their shack on Rockaway Beach, theirs was the only game in town. In fact, the only traditional taffy makers in the whole city. And if that weren’t unique enough, their charming chews use all natural ingredients, like real vanilla beans, real fruit, and large-grain sea salt that gives the candy a sprightly, satisfying crunch.
