Orange: it’s the name of a color and a fruit, but which one entered into the English lexicon first? You’d probably assume the food was named after its signature hue.
You’d be wrong. Before the 1500s, the English would refer to the color merely as "yellow-red" or "red-yellow" -- we really must commend our ancestors on their vivid imaginations. It wasn’t until a few centuries’ of calling the fruit an "orange" (a corruption of the name of the fruit from various languages including Spanish, French, and Arabic) had passed that a few creative souls thought to start calling the color the same thing. And thus, the brilliant hue derived its name from a delicious food!
Now, you can celebrate both by enjoying everything orange about this salt water taffy! From its bright coloring to its juicy flavor, this chewy treat is an orange-lover’s dream, crafted with care by Taffy Town Candy!
