Salt water taffy is one of my favorite treats, especially my aunts hand made stuff, so I may be biased.  I say go for it, you might make sure they are as small of pieces as possible.  I prefer the ones I can pop in my mouth without looking like I have a huge wad in my mouth.

I think salt water taffy would be really cute. Jelly beans don’t really say ‘wedding’ to me, but I think the taffy is adorable enough to work:).

Jelly beans make me think of Easter baskets. Taffy makes me think of breezy summers on the beach. I think you should definitely go with the taffy!

I dont know anyone off the top of my head who just really loves jelly beans….I realize some people do but i don’t consider it to be some amazing candy that everyone likes! Go with what you really want! The Taffy sounds like a great idea!

Salt water taffy would be better because:

-it tastes great

– pieces are individually wrapped so stickiness is not an issue

I think either could be cute but I honestly can’t say that between jelly beans and taffy, one is considered “cheaper.”

I love salt water taffy.  I doubt it will be sticky and gross since it’s sold along the East Coast which is hot and humid!

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Agreed. Whenever I go to the shore I can count on taffy being a fairly safe treat. The individual wrapped pieces make them a safe choice.

I like both choices but I think taffy seems more “wedding favor” to me.

I would say it totally depends on what your wedding colors are too… If your colors are black and gold, I seriously doubt that your guests are going to universally like black liquorice and buttered popcorn jelly bellies OR taffy! I don’t see anything wrong with taffy though, I like both treats and if the taffy is more you AND cost effective, go for it!
