What's in Roman Candy?

  I love Roman Candy. It's a taffy that doesn't taste like any other kind of taffy. And every time I see the Roman Candy man with his mule and his white cart with the red wheels, I make my mom and dad buy some. The problem is that we eat it so fast we run out. So I tried to make some. And that's when I ran into another problem: it's kind of a secret recipe. I know it has corn syrup, sugar and flavorings, but I don't know what else is in it, what the measurements are or how exactly Roman Candy gets its chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavors. But here's what I do know: Roman Candy is based on a Sicilian recipe, and the Cortese family has been selling its candy from the same cart since 1915, and that the mule driving the cart these days is named Vidalia.
