Combine sugar, syrup, salt and water in a 2-quart saucepan. Cook slowly, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Cook to hard boil stage (260 degrees) without stirring. Remove from heat; stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into a buttered 15 1/2x10 1/2x1-inch pan. Cool until comfortable to handle. Butter hands, gather taffy into a ball, and pull. When candy is light in color and gets hard to pull, cut into fourths. Pull each piece into long strand about 1/2-inch thick. With buttered scissors or knife, quickly snip into bite-size pieces. Wrap each piece in waxed paper.
