An Atlantic City classic – salt water taffy circa 1957

Generations of families have traveled “Down the Shore” to the beaches and Boardwalks of the New Jersey shoreline – including mine. After a wonderful day jumping waves and getting sunburned, we would shower, grab something fast for supper and head straight onto the boardwalk to ride the roller coaster, drink birch beer and, of course, buy salt water taffy. This box is from 1962 when I was 10.

My memories are so full of the taste of salt water on my skin and the feeling of the cool water splashing against my legs that I can still taste the sweet and salty candy in my mind. This print reminds me of my childhood, with a smile and whimsy.
