I bet that smelled so good. I have to say that, that is something that I have never done.Sounds like fun.

I have always wondered if pulling taffy is as much fun as it looks. Maybe some day I'll give it a try!

My mom use to make taffy w/ her family. She will talk about it sometimes w/ the fondest of memories. She said it was so much fun.

I come from a very large family (12 siblings) so all our treaqts were homemade (no store bought cookies or candy in our house). I also remember a taffy pull just before Christmas time one year and my older sister and I helpind Mom pulling the taffy. It was for stocking stuffers, another sister was cutting papers for wrapping it (we were the oldest 3) and it was late at night and the younger kids were asleep. One of my younger brothers (maybe 3 years old) came running into the kitchen crying (a nightmare, perhaps?) and ran right into the taffy string and got it stuck in his hair. While we started to yelp she shushed us and then calmly cut out that piece of the string, used oil to get the candy out of his hair, washed his hair and took him to bed, and told us to keep pulling. She still amazes me how she raised that number of kids and hardly ever yelled or got excited in an emergency!

I pulled taffy one time when I was young with some friends. Do not really remember how it went but must have been OK as I do remember eating it
