Back when I was a kid.. we did school fundraisers and sold candy. One year we sold this saltwater taffy. It had a plastic package like a kitkat. It was about the same size as a kitkat also. Inside were bars of saltwater taffy wrapped in wax paper.
The best flavor was cherry.

Does anyone remember the name/brand of that saltwater taffy?

I've been trying to track it down for the last 3 hours.

You can e-mail me at ankur394@hotmail.com

No that's not it. It didn't have a stick.

It looked exactly like a Kit Kat, except it was red, pink, yellow for the flavors.

Nope. Packaging on the turkish taffy is different too. The stuff I remember was a solid color. And the name doesn't sound familiar either.
