Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturday: Salt Water Taffy

This week, we ditch the chocolate and review Trader Joe's Salt Water Taffy.

The package package and the taffy pieces themselves are so pretty in spring colors.

In the bag, you'll find an assortment of flavors: cherry, strawberry-banana, red licorice, sour apple, and watermelon. A 7-ounce bag of assorted taffies is a bargain at $1.99.

One note is that the taffies are colored with plant extracts...red radish, red cabbage, and turmeric.
Now, why can't my vegetables be flavored with candy extract???

A mom's (my) take: Why do I rarely buy taffy? I think because I'm always drawn to chocolate. Well, these Trader Joe's taffies are good! Chewy, sweet, and in a few cases, tart and tangy...they're a perfect sweet treat. I really appreciate the fact that Trader Joe's colored these with plant extracts. While I use food coloring for decorating cookies, I love finding products without or that use natural options whenever possible. Good stuff. The sour apple and watermelon flavors were my favorites.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

A teenager's (kiddo's) take: This is by far the best taffy I have tasted that I can remember! The consistency is just stiff enough where you have to work for it, but not too much. The flavor does take a second to come out, but once it does, it is incredibly powerful! It leaves a pleasant aftertaste, and doesn't leave any stickiness behind because it tends to stay in one piece (unless you purposefully bite it into separate pieces). These little guys pack a flavorful punch!
