I lived in pittsburgh as a boy, my family and I would go to our cottage in Deep Creek Maryland, and we would go to the drive in theater I’d have my CHOCOLATE BONOMOS turkish taffy MY FAVORITE kind, my face would show it, it NEVER left my hands, that was the high light of my visits to our cottage. I went shopping at a hunting store (Cabelas) and while I was standing at the check out line I looked at the racks in front of me and all you heard was a scream oh my God Turkish Taffy, I couldn’t for the life of me believe what I was seeing. A BOX OF MY FAVORITE CHOCOLATE BONOMOS TAFFY. i HAVE TO BE TRULY HONEST HERE, i WAS SO GREEDY I BOUGHT THE WHOLE BOX OF 24. The smile on my face is still there, I just got on line and ordered my wife and I 3 boxes. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR BRINGING IT BACK!

My grandparents owned a restaurant in Coney Island called the Clam Bar and Mr. Bonomo was a friend and patron of the restaurant. In those years I would remember hanging out, thinking i was working, and waiting to see Mr Bonomo, he would always bring me plenty of the taffy i loved so dearly. I honestly missed the taffy and salt water taffy was never a substitute! The funny part of this story was that I was talking to my own granchildren about those days just recently and I told them this story and magically I was in a store and there it was! Now they truly will be able to try a piece of my childhood! Thank you for bringing it back, i had a very nostalgic moment as silly as that may seem.

I was one of the people who has been wishing for its return for many years. I gave up looking last year. It made my day to find it and know that it is back. I have friends who feel the same way and are also thrilled. Thanks to the company!!!!!!!!!

Great candy!

She lived near Coney Island, and she and her friends used to go through the garbage from the Bonomy factory on West 8th street to find candy.

In all that I’ve read on Bonomo’s so far only Coney Island is cited as the address. Was there an East New York facility also ?

He is also very happy and is going to make a night of a movie and his Strewberry Bonamo Turkis Taffy. Life is good. Hugs Randi *the sister that ate all of my poor brothers candy.

They appear as part of some trail mix but otherwise they are completely gone from the market.
