Combine the honey, cream, and salt together in a saucepan. Stir to combine.
Bring the mixture to 280 degrees without stirring.
Add the baking soda into the taffy and stir quickly to combine.
Transfer the taffy to a buttered baking dish. Allow the taffy to cool until you can touch it comfortably.
With buttered hands, lift the taffy from the dish and begin stretching it and folding it over itself. Keep doing this until the taffy is light and taffy-like.
Use a buttered knife to cut the taffy into small pieces. Top each piece with a bit of sea salt, if desired.
Wrap each piece in a small piece of parchment paper.
