    I’ve actually had taffy with salt in it. “Ocean Breeze” is essentially vanilla flavor candy with sea salt crystals mixed into it

    I've always wondered why it was called salt water taffy.

    Pretty cool. I've worked in various factories over the years and the food processing ones that deal with wet or dry goods typically feed from the second floors since gravity is free. I'm sure they have a decent warehouse with all the ingredients they need :) Takes a lot to keep old machines running too.

    As much as I like taffy I still prefer hard candy since it lasts longer

    Many moons ago, I watched the occasional fly get folded into the taffy on a taffy puller machine at a state fair, for some reason the operation was set up under an open shelter...yes, the candy was being sold in boxes with the state fair logo.

    literally the only thing you didn't tell us is what you said you did: how taffy is being made. you showed us how it's packed, but what makes it different from your hard candy? the working temperature? the ingredients? both?

      Mostly the temp it is cooked to. It has more water in it. It's also pulled while room temp or close to it. It can have corn starch in it, but they did not share the recipe with me.

    this was very cool. The wrapping machine looks very advanced for something from the 1920’s. Also it kinda made me chuckle that nearly everything is automated, apart from the bit which pushes the packets into the boxes.. I would have thought this was the easiest bit to automate

    I work at the Hershey factory and that scale system is essentially the same ones that we use. It's a fairly neat system that can pump out around 60 bags per minute. Except our wrappers on the Nuggets line pump out about 450 pieces in a minute.

      it lacks the neccessary pressure-sensing equipment and/or pop-gears. That much is clear from just seeing the machine.

    First, they take the dinglepop and they smooth it out with a bunch of schleem. The schleem is then repurposed for later batches. They take the dinglebop and they push it through the grumbo, where the fleeb is rubbed against it. It's important that the fleeb is rubbed, because the fleeb has all of the fleeb juice. Then a Schlameeh shows up, and he rubs it, and spits on it. They cut the fleeb. There are several hizzards in the way. The blamphs rub against the chumbles, and the klubus and grumbo are shaved away. That leaves you with a regular taffy.
