Huh! Roman Taffy. It's an Italian style Salt Water Taffy. (Is Food Network not the best teacher?)
Ron Kotteman's 100-year-old recipe is not only vegan, but also Candace Nelson's favorite dessert in New Orleans! How badly do you want a mouthful of that stuff right now? So very badly.
A sincere thank you to dessert master Candace Nelson (of Sprinkles Cupcakes in LA) and to Scripps for bringing us this sophisticated sugar-lesson.
