BONOMO TURKISH TAFFY Sun, 10/15/06 10:49 PM (permalink)
Bonomo is Back! Your wait is almost over! Tell all your family and friends we are just around the corner to having BONOMO TURKISH TAFFY available again for retail and Internet sales. We have produced Bonomo on a limited production and now we are on the brink of full production. Our Internet site is only temporary and will be updated shortly: www.bonomosturkishtaffy.com.

Producing Bonomo exactly as it was is not as easy as it sounds. But it will be exactly the way it was made in the 60's with the Smack-it crack-it formula in all the original flavors. We are well aware of poor imitations that make erroneous comparison claims. This is not an imitation or a close approximation, this is the original!

There are certain things that brings back that love-in feeling. It takes us back to a by-gone day full of wonder and delight. For some of us its a place or a song. All that we can hope at BONOMO is that for many its the original smack-it crack-it formula of Bonomo Turkish Taffy!

It is my passion to be able to offer a trip down memory lane. Of course it helps when you have the greatest candy ever made!

Kenneth Wiesen
Co-CEO, Bonomo Turkish Taffy, LLC

        Freeze it, crack it, and nurture it til it softens before chewing.

                I remember freezing it and cracking it on the table to get bite sized chunks!

                  I don't know if my teeth could take this, but I do know that I can't find the 10 or 12 cent comics to accompany the experience

                      If it's a matter of venture capital, I'm sure that the ADA would be happy to fund this operation.

                            Here is an alternative, if you need a taffy "fix"

                              Yes,French Chew is almost identical to Bonomo's...and all the same flavors, even banana!

                                I've tried the "French Chew". Close but, no cigar.
