23 May

Taffy Day is officially recognized in America by the National Confectioner's Association of America.

This differs from National English Toffee Day, which they say is 8th January.

Nor is it the same as St Taffy's Day (aka St David's Day), which is 1st March.

In Quebec, Taffy Day is November 25 and has been since the mid 1600s.

In the Anne of Green Gables novels, there's a regular Taffy Day each year. Anne's enemy, Felicity, sabotages Anne's taffy by pouring a lot of salt into it. Still, that is very different from saltwater taffy.
