Sayklly's Salt Water Taffy
Sayklly's Candies, Escanaba and Marquette; saykllys.com
Since 1906, Sayklly's has been catering to Yoopers' sweet tooths. Today, its offerings include not just those big, boxed candies given on Valentine's day but fudges, dark sea salt caramels, milk peanut clusters, milk pecan "snappies," chocolate drops, peanut brittle, and "Yooper Trail Mix." But those with a taste for the classics will no doubt approve of Sayklly's taffies: It's made from the same recipe it was 100 years ago, and hand-flavored and hand-pulled by expert candy makers. Flavors include banana, chocolate, grape, maple, vanilla, mint, cherry, orange, and even anise.
