One mother emailed to say that at their recent candy experiments party, they stretched Laffy Taffy to a length of 1.75 yards! My kids and I had to try it. I wasn't sure how to stretch the candy that far, so I rolled it instead into a strand about 2 1/2 feet long (the length of my cutting board).
When I was a child I made taffy with my grandmother once--the last step was to butter our hands and stretch it out. It's funny to think that this reader is just treating taffy as it's supposed to be treated.
Wonder what other kinds of candy you can stretch that far? We will definitely have to investigate this further.
