The Laffy Taffy candy has been around for decades under the Willy Wonka brand, as produced by Nestlé, establishing itself as an American classic treat with its sweet, chewy, fruity goodness. The candies are individually wrapped, and come in a larger 45 g “slab” format or smaller 1.5 g fun-size format. The four standard flavors that the smaller pieces come in are banana, cherry, strawberry, and green apple. In terms of texture and taste, they are comparable to being between Airheads and Starbursts, two other candies of the “chewy fruit-flavored” variety.
Regardless of any other characteristics though, the trademark trait of Laffy Taffy is the joke printed on every wrapper. In fact, the candy has successfully established its brand for this purpose, as they are more famous for their silly jokes than for their culinary value or exquisite taste, despite arguably being a fine taffy-type candy as well.
While these jokes can be derided at times for being terrible or simply unfunny, perhaps due to the fact that they are often submitted by children, once in a while the jokes found on a Laffy Taffy wrapper yield some truly funny jokes. Whether they utilize clever wordplay, highlight a brilliant connection between two otherwise unrelated items, or tell a quick humorous tale, here is a collection of the top 10 Laffy Taffy jokes on the wrappers.
