It's all psychological

I found a bag of cheap saltwater taffy at one of the grocery stores here and brought it to work to replenish our candy jar. The candy jar was the brainchild of one person and heretofore she was the only one to keep it stocked. However, considering the disproportional amount of munching I've done at her expense, I decided it would behoove me to contribute.

The saltwater taffy tastes cheap, not like the stuff my friend Natalie sent me one Christmas. But there's something about saltwater taffy. Maybe it's the name. "Saltwater taffy" sounds yummy and whimsical to me.

So. Cheap saltwater taffy tastest generic, but that doesn't stop me from finding some enjoyment in it.
