Video: “Ugh, saltwater taffy is kind of gross.” That’s what Marisa Wu thought years ago, when a colleague suggested she make some of her own. But then she investigated and figured out how to cook taffy flavoured by real ingredients, not lab-created chemicals. Now Wu runs Salty Road Taffy, a popular high-end taffy brand where the banana flavour tastes like (and is made with) real bananas, where each recipe is carefully calibrated and made on antique equipment.
Wu gave us a video tour of the taffy factory, and talked about juggling production, marketing, and other aspects of her small business from a desk on the factory floor.

Video: So you’re bad at laundry. Maybe you’ve been able to come home from uni every weekend lugging a bag of dirty clothes like Santa, or maybe you never fully recovered from that lipstick-in-the-dryer incident of ‘08. We aren’t here to judge. We’re here to help. In this final episode of Lifehacker’s Adulting series, we go over some laundry basics.
Video: Lawrence O’Donnell, television pundit and author of the recently rereleased book Deadly Force: A Police Shooting and My Family’s Search for the Truth, visits the Lifehacker studio to talk about why his book was rereleased now, how police brutality is hardly new news, and what you should do if you witness an event in which a police officer commits a crime.
