Can your Laffy Taffy jokes impress Nick Cannon? The iconic taffy candy wants a new Chief Laugh Officer. Do you have the candy creativity needed?

Who doesn’t love a good joke? Laffy Taffy has always had a funny, sometimes punny, joke inside its wrappers. Now, with the help of Nick Cannon, the classic candy is looking for a new Chief Laugh Officer. Can you find some sweet creativity?

To kick off the search for a new Chief Laugh Officer, Laffy Taffy has hit store shelves with a new look and some special new jokes. Inside some of the candy wrappers are jokes written by Nick Cannon. The comedian is a fan of the candy and those jokes that have always been part of the brand. Cannon said “I can’t wait to combine my love for the candy and comedy to start the search for a Chief Laugh Officer.”

While the taffy candy is always a favorite with young and old, the candy’s signature is the jokes on the wrapper. Kids love ripping open the wrappers to find a silly, light-hearted joke. Still, these jokes need to stay current. No one wants to laugh at a cheesy, old-school joke. It’s like stale candy and no one wants that.

With this new contest, everyone can get their joke on.

This candy is super chewy and has long lasting fruit flavors. It is probably best to keep those jokes family friendly. Think about what a school aged kid would find funny and you could be on your way to candy stardom.
