You'll want to check out Chocolates and Confections by Peter Greweling, that will have more info then you expect. The saltwater taffy formula is reliable, and it has an extremely long shelf life. As for the hard candies, you'd be amazed at the combos possible with colors and different flavors, whether natural oils or artificial flavors. You can go way beyond then classic peppermint cane. Pm me if you have any specific questions.
