"The Taffy Lady"
Mifflin's Salt Water Taffy was started back in 1969 by a single mother and her two sons, ages 12 and 5. What was she thinking! The original store was located in the Balboa Fun Zone, as seen above, and served sno-cones, cotton candy, popcorn, licorice, fudge, and caramel corn, as well as salt water taffy. Every summer was spent by all three at the beach working in the store. For 6 years the family also managed the hamburger stand next door.
The Mom, Bobbie Mifflin passed away in October, 2006. We will miss her!
The Pharmacy in Balboa will carries our taffy, the Crab Cooker in Newport Beach has a gift box of our taffy, and the Carousel Cafe in Santa Monica has our taffy
