James’ Salt Water Taffy

In this year's SAVEUR 100, we take stock of our favorite things: recipes, people, places. We consider every last one a new classic.

A piece of this taffy demands a good, long chew, providing ample opportunity to savor the flavors that are James’ mainstays: banana, molasses mint, licorice, chocolate. Open since 1880, it’s the oldest business on Atlantic City’s boardwalk, a testament to James’ everlasting appeal.
