Another relic from Grasse’s childhood: Mrs. Benner’s Slap Jack Candy, a kind of Pennsylvania Dutch pull taffy that’s been made by the same family in Grasse’s hometown for 50 years. Like Snap, the candy’s primary ingredient is molasses. “It’s funny because back in the day, only poor people used molasses, and that’s how you got things like funny cake and shoofly pie,” he says. “Rich people used sugar. But molasses has all the nutrients in it. It’s sort of like the difference between brown rice and white rice.”
