In 1915, Sam Cortese began making and selling his hand-pulled molasses taffy from a wooden, mule-drawn wagon on the streets of New Orleans. The famous red and white wagon bearing the name “Roman Chewing Candy” is a true fixture of New Orleans tradition and still can be found in the streets today, clanging its bell and calling all to come to enjoy the hand-pulled chocolate, strawberry and vanilla taffy.
Now, to celebrate the centennial anniversary of Roman Chewing Candy, with the same molasses base used in making the delectable candy, we have sweetened flavorful Roman Candy Rum . So, enjoy the same delicious taffy flavors in our chocolate, strawberry and vanilla rums – reminiscent of the traditional Roman Chewing Candy taffy flavors.
Our distinct, flavorful Rums would make Grandpa Sam Cortese proud!
