I just ask this because...
1.) When I bought it last season, I saw boxed filled with it and it looked like a box it may of been shipped in.
2.) I went to walmart and got a bag of taffy for $1 (16oz), and it has the identical colors, flavors and awesomeness of CP's, and I can promise you that you cannot tell the difference. I have them side by side and they taste the exact same. I can't believe it, I struck gold!!! :)
So yeah, if they do indeed make it fresh still, then Walmart found someone that makes it identical, if not, they must have the same supplier.
So I thought id share for those who love CP's taffy! :) :)

No, it's not made at the park. It's been some time since they pulled their own taffy.

Just curious, how much did the same size of said same taffy cost at CP?

I believe for a box of it at CP (the largest box they offered) was roughly about the same amount you get in the bag from Walmart, and it cost me at CP, in the area of $10, not 100% sure, but im almost POSITIVE it is the exact same taffy, and a little bit fresher too.
I need to get some more... :)

It's been a long time since I've seen fresh taffy being made. It used to be quite common. that taffy pully machine is mesmerizing.

I think the last time I had 'park made' taffy was at Geauga Lake and if I'm not mistaken, it was Cofelt's (or some name like that). I always got a kick out of watching them make it.
Salt Water Taffy is awesome. 9 out of 10 dentists prefer taffy for the clients over Coke or Pepsi. :)
Thanks for the tip on WalMart taffy, I'll have to get some.
Come to think of it, I think DollyWood make their own.

^ SCBB's taffy-puller was on display and working overtime this weekend... ;)
There's also quite a few places on the Jersey Shore to get "real fresh" taffy... :)

Jame's Saltwater Taffy in Atlantic City & Wildwood NJ is the best in the world! Made fresh on the boardwalk! Try the chocolate covered taffy! Yum!
Keep the small parks alive!

I thought that cp still made there own taffee, but they made it in the commisary(sp) inside the park. I know that they make there own fudge in there.
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Indiana Beach...as I recall...has some good taffy offerings.

For many years Coffelt's of Springfield, OH had the candy concession at CP. They had a large stand where taffy was made on site, and another store on the Frontier Trail at Cedar Junction where fudge and hard candies were made. My understanding was that their concession was not renewed in the late 1970's

I believe that SFOT still has a working taffy machine-and I agree...it is mezmerizng.
