In 1915, Sam Cortese had a wagon designed so that he could make his mother's special Italian taffy recipe as he rode through the streets of the city; the same wagon is used today ~ The Roman Candy Man can be found in various places and is the best snack for anytime!

The mule-drawn Roman candy cart has been roaming the streets of New Orleans selling sticks of hand-pulled and wrapped chocolate, vanilla and strawberry taffy since Sam Cortese started the Roman Candy Co. using a taffy recipe from his mother, Angelina.

Roman Candy Company: If you want this tasty gourmet taffy, you’ll have to find the wagon and mule. It’s usually hanging around the streets of Uptown and Downtown. If you come across him, don’t pass him by without stopping to buy a stick in Vanilla, Chocolate or Strawberry.
