Claim[edit]

I couldn't find any source for the claim that Bonomo is returning next year or that the Warrell Corporation is involved. I have removed this paragraph. However, browsing previous revisions I noticed a URL for Bonomo Turkish Taffy, LLC which has since gone offline. I found a previous revision (from 2003) in the Internet Archive claiming the return of Turkish Taffy. I added information about this. I'm happy to discuss my change if anyone wants.

Copyright concerns[edit]

It seems the current version of the article was a direct copy of that contained at http://www.bonomoturkishtaffy.com/MuseumHistory_ep_40.html. Due to the dates concerned it is hard to confirm which came first, but the Bonomo Turkish Taffy is the official site and is copyrighted, so I've acted on the assumption that the material was copied from the official site to Wikipedia. I tired accessing the sources used here, but the main one, "Meet Vic Bonomo, the Candy Man of the Year." Candy Industry and Confectioners Journal. 114.13 (1960): 25-38, is difficult to verify. It may be that I'm mistaken, though, but I think given the identical nature of the text, and the manner in which it appeared here in a single edit, it is better to assume a copyright violation. - Bilby (talk) 05:46, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
