According to Bulk Candy Store, salt water taffy originated in Atlantic City in the 19th century. According to the Bulk Candy Store website, the legend goes something like this…..David Bradley, who owned a candy store, was flooded during a major storm in 1883. All of Mr. Bradley’s taffy was soaked with salty Atlantic Ocean water. A young girl then came along and asked if he had any taffy for sale. Mr. Bradley jokingly offered her some “salt water taffy.”  After sampling a piece, the girl purchased the candy. Bradley’s mother was in the back of the store and overheard the whole conversation. She loved the name “salt water taffy”, and that’s what it was called from then on.
