Ok I have been racking my brain trying to figure out what this kind of candy is called....The texture is sorta creamy, its like a tan color, its made by putting it on a hook and pulling it? I think. I had it years ago and I have been CRAVING it big time lately, Can't find it anywhere and I don't know what it is called exactly,when you put it in your mouth its kind of creamy, anyone know!?!?!

is it taffy? That's the only thing I can think of that's pulled, but it comes in lots of colors besides tan.

Maybe it is, I know it tasted sweet kinda like a dinner mint, you know what I mean? Wink I'm guessing it's in the taffy family, but I can't find it anywhere. I remember our church used to make it and sell it at bake sales.

I think you might be thinking of pull taffy. It's tan coloured and sort of creamy tasting. Here's my grandma's recipe, in case you want to try making some:

2 cups sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp molasses

Boil all the ingredients together, stirring constantly, until the candy reaches the hard crack stage.  Pour onto a greased baking sheet until cool enough to handle.  Cover your hands with a little butter and pull the taffy back and forth until it turns shiny and light coloured.  Cut into pieces.

I hope that's helpful. Smiley

OMG thanks sooo much, I have been trying to figure that out forever, Yes it is tan and sooo creamy, I would love to make some but when recipes include stirring constantly and so forth, I tend to burn it some how, like rice krispie treats the other day I let get to hot I guess, then the treats tasted like stale cereal heh and all gooey Cheesy

I still may try that recipe and let you all know how it went, Thanks again Jvay!!! Grin
