"How to eat Bonomo Turkish Taffy: 1. Hold bar in palm of hand. 2. Strike against a flat surface to break into bite-sized pieces. 3. Let candy melt in your mouth." That's what the not-actually-Turkish confection label instructs. Turkish Taffy, which was created post-World War II, has the amazing ability to be shattered by sudden shock yet remain soft and chewy otherwise.
The product, which was originally distributed in large sheets, broken off at the counter, and sold by weight, was discontinued in the '80s, then brought back to life in 2010.
