Goldenrod Taffy (Echo Park Made From Scratch)


I will admit to being a total snob when it comes to my choice of saltwater taffy. I've tried taffy from many states and many places, but the taffy Kisses made at the The Goldenrod in York Beach, Maine deserve a gold medal. They are simply the best and unlike anything else I've ever tried. I've been eating them since I was a kid (when we spent summers in Wells Beach, Maine) and visit the shop whenever we're in the area. You can even see them being made, from start to wrapped finish, through the store windows.

I've passed the love of this treat down to Alexa. She loves going to The Goldenrod too. Over the summer we made a trip to Massachusetts to see family and friends, and managed to sneak a half day in to visit Maine and made a stop at The Goldenrod. We bought a pound of our favorite flavors and transported them back to New York. :)

I guess I should tell you a bit about the layout. LOL! I used Echo Park's new Made From Scratch collection to document our love for this fine confection, also putting my Silhouette to good use (title, "sweet kisses" and the wrapped piece of candy). You'll also see a number of embellishments from various Paper Issues Swag Bags on here. I just love that bag of goodness. There's always plenty of tidbits in there that are perfect for whatever I happen to be working on. :)

  8. This color combo is so striking. The navy and yellow combo makes me swoon! Great work with the Silhouette. I had assumed the wrapped candy was a chipboard piece. Didn't know you made it. So cute. I just love this layout, Lisa!

  10. This is deliciously fun. I'm that way when I go to certain parts of the state or Europe. There are some things that don't taste the same until you find "the one."
