Old Fashioned Taffy Pulling join us for this fun event.

  • November 3, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • Peggy's

Taffy pulling was a popular type of party in the 19th century.  We decided to bring this party to the 21 century.  There are many parts to making taffy but the final and important step is making taffy and pulling it.  We will be stretching it and folding it over and over and over which makes the candy lighter and chewier.

This party REQUIRES partcipation and all  must be willing to butter your hands and pull pull pull!  Everyone will walk away with an assortment of flavors of taffy.  There is no cost to this meetup... but bring a cube of (unsalted) butter for your hands.  We will be making taffy from start to finish.. including wrapping it.

Now that's an afternoon of fun.

    Totally AWESOME !!!!!! This was an experience one will never forget ! What a gooey way to have fun, Peggy is a "Saint" to let us pull taffy in her beautiful living room ! Yvonne and Ash make a great comedy team. I won't soon forget the two of them covered in butter, making jokes and laughing : )) Thank you so much Peggy for everything, and Thank you Mark for all your hard work. It was really good to see everyone again and meet new friends : ))

    LOTS of THANK YOU's all around. I'm so HAPPY everyone had a good time! I wish I could have joined you all in the "laughter" room. This was definitely more work than I thought it would be when I "dreamed" the idea up a couple of years ago! THANK YOU Peggy for all the decorations, help, your support, AND for letting me make such a "mess" in your kitchen! Couldn't have done it without you! Seeing all the smiles was all I needed to know everyone had a FUN "pulling" time!

    I am so sorry to have to cancel. I think I slept on a nerve or something last night, as I can hardly move. I had hoped some Aleve would help, but it hasn't. I was so looking forward to this and meeting new people. I see there are others that are waiting and I hope one an take my spot. I am so sorry.

      That is why I am not going to visit this page much. Every time I visit this page, I am sooo tempted to make a comment. When butter, taffy and pulling is involved, the opportunities, for making a comment that will get me in trouble, are endless!!!!... lol ;-)

      October 18, 2013

  • Sandra

    Sounds like fun! I haven't done this since I was a kid! I will try to make it!
