This stuff was really sticky and chewy. I'm sure the dentists loved it!

It's a wonder anyone growing up in the late 60s and 70s has any teeth left! You could freeze it and give it a good whack to crack it into pieces. When it got soft, it was super sticky and stretchy.

I remember buying this stuff growing up. We would throw it smack down on the sidewalk before we opened the pkg to break it into small pieces we could eat. The chocolate and banana flavors were the best!

The seventies twist of Turkish Taffy meant the end, at least for thirty years. Tootsie Roll bought the rights to Turkish Taffy from Bonomo in 1972, then created its own brand of taffy. A new Bonomo Turkish Taffy company regenerated in 2002. Originally a New York product only, Turkish Taffy became a national favorite since Bonomo bought the rights in the late 1930s. Bonomo smartly promoted its product with plenty of TV and comic book ads from the 1950s until 1972. Turkish Taffy was sticky, messy...but delicious!
