Start a taffy-making tradition by making peppermint taffy with your family and create memories that will stick around for many years.

Why Make Taffy With Your kids?

Taffy-making can become a memorable holiday tradition.

My family’s holiday taffy-making tradition started with great-grandma over a hundred years ago. Since then, five generations of my family have cherished the tradition.

Kids enjoy traditions, those special experiences that come only once a year, so start an annual taffy pull with your family. Your kids will remember so much more than just the sweet-tasting candy. They’ll remember the time spent together with family. With you.

A taffy pull is also a fun way to instill in your kids the value of giving handmade gifts. Who doesn’t love taffy? Here’s their chance to make something any family member or friend would love to receive.
