A Salt Water Taffy was our prompt....

Salt Water Taffy.


Brilliant turquoise in colour, my fingers now sticky on my screen, sweet nothing on my tongue with a sort of fudge like texture.  Would I eat another?


The disappointment flooded over me when I realized it wasn’t blueberry flavour.

But,  it invoked pictures in my memory of a hazy blue sea,  sail boats , men in boaters,  ladies in  bloomers and those wonderful beach huts which are now so in vogue. Children running along with kites, donkey rides on the clean white sand. Ice Cream and Candy floss

How one tiny rectangle of sweet stickiness could evoke long forgotten memories of an idyllic childhood was truly amazing.

Long Live Salt Water Taffy.
