Bonomo’s Turkish Taffy is a nostalgic candy favorite that’s returned after a long absence – and we’re so glad it’s back! Bonomo Company was founded in Coney Island, NY in 1897 by Albert J. Bonomo, a Sephardic Jew who had had emigrated from Izmir, Turkey. The company originally produced salt water taffy and hard candies. Turkish Taffy, a chewy taffy-like candy (technically, it’s a nougat), was invented by Victor Bonomo, Albert’s son. Turkish Taffy was originally distributed at Woolworth's stores, where pieces were broken off of large sheets with a ball-peen hammer at the counter and sold by weight. In the late 1940s, the company released a version in candy-bar size which the purchaser could whack against a hard surface to break into bite-sized pieces. Turkish Taffy was discontinued in 1989, but it’s been back in production since 2010, much to the delight of nostalgic candy fans everywhere.
