Where can you puchase bonomo's Turkish taffy?

Unfortunately, you can't. Tootsie Roll had the recipe and discontinued the product. In 2005 or so, someone bought the product/recipe, but I suspect wasn't able to find the backing for it.

In 2006, I wrote the following to Tootsie Roll:

"PLEASE bring back Bonomo's Turkish Taffy - even if just as a specialty at Christmas. The internet is full of these requests. Although many candy sites try to substitue the Doscher's French Chew taffy - it tastes and chews NOTHING like Turkish Taffy. Turkish Taffy's Chocolate was great - but nothing on the market compares, or to its Banana, Strawberry and especially the Vanilla. We're all aging - there are more of us than the young - get us now, while we still have our TEETH!! "

Here's Tootsie Roll's reply:

"Thanks for contacting us. In 1972, Tootsie Roll Industries acquired Bonomo Turkish Taffy. The product was first sold in Coney Island and at the time of purchase was over one hundred years old. Tootsie Roll introduced it to the market with the original flavors plus cherry and green apple.

At present, as you know, Turkish Taffy is no longer in production, but we recently transferred the trademark and recipe to another company that plans to reintroduce Turkish Taffy. Perhaps you will be able to find this product in stores in the future.

Thanks again for the interest."

Well, it's been 3.5 years since I sent in my request, and still - no Turkish Taffy on store shelves.

UPDATE: Dec.2010: Bonomo is available at Vermont Country Store, see the link below.
