A Laugh for Today – 33 Best Laffy Taffy Jokes to Sweeten Your Day

From Reader’s Digest

Move over Snapple facts and make room for these hilarious jokes found on Laffy Taffy wrappers.

One of the sweetest flavors of childhood is undisputedly the chewy, juicy, sugary, and cavity-inducing Laffy Taffy. You may have even argued with classmates over the best flavors—strawberry being superior, obviously. Now produced by the Ferrara Candy Company, these individually wrapped taffy rectangles that come in a variety of flavors have been bringing joy to kids and even adults (no shame here!) since the 1970s. Laffy Taffy was launched under Kathryn Beich Candies in Bloomington, Illinois as Beich’s Caramels, but was later renamed Beich’s Laffy Taffy. The candy was bought by Nestle in 1984 which then sold the brand to the Ferrara Candy Company in 2018, producing the taffy we know and love today. But chewing on this tasty treat wasn’t the only intriguing part of the experience. So if you’re a fan of Snapple facts, you’re going to love these funny puns and more.

Beich really put the “laffy” in Laffy Taffy. Inside each individual wrapper, you’ll find a joke. Since the launch, the jokes have been written and mailed in by children, making for some super silly and hilarious humor. These aren’t your typical knock knock jokes for kids. Laffy Taffy jokes are clever, punny, and may even make you think a little. We have all the candy punsice cream puns, and cookie puns that you could dream of, but this roundup of the best Laffy Taffy jokes people found on their wrappers will definitely get you giggling and eager to share with friends.
