Everyone loves Laffy Taffy. Their taffy bars and ropes are classic candy favorites, first produced in the 1970s. Yet they weren't called Laffy Taffy at the time. Indeed, they were called Beich's Caramels, even though there was no caramel in them and they didn't taste even faintly of caramel. The name change probably made the product, since Laffy Taffy was a far more apt description. Eventually the product line sold to Nestle, where it is sold under the Wonka brand. But perhaps the most memorable part of Laffy Taffy, where it gets the Laffy name, is the joke written on the inside wrapper of each. These jokes are by children, for children, and have provided chuckles since they first appeared.
