Old fashioned Puff Candy is also known as sponge candy and by many as sponge toffee. If this candy has to live by looks alone, it wouldn't get far. One taste, however and you could be addicted. Old fashioned puff candy is a light, airy molasses-flavored candy that looks similar to a sponge, but taste like heaven. Crunchy when you first bite into it, it quickly melts in your mouth like cotton candy. This product is made from Autumn to the end of the Winter.
