Originally a fisher merchant, Joseph Fralinger became one of the country’s top confectioners in 1885. As a way to make his “superior quality long kind” Salt Water Taffies even more attractive to beachgoers, Fralinger packed them in an easy to carry box- an oyster box as a matter of fact. The idea caught on quickly, and so was born one of the world’s first seaside souvenirs. Thanks to his “invention,” Salt Water Taffy became world famous in the 1880’s, and boxes of these delicious confections remain popular keepsakes from visits to many seaside towns.
