That's really great news - and I'm (temporarily) a diabetic!! I will be ordering soon.

Thanks,

Re: candy of your youth

The UPS man was just here dropping off my French Chew (Turkish Taffy). Tonight's the night! They are chilling in the fridge right now. I also got some licorice wheels. And some Canada Mints (wintergreen) for my wife. Also got her a Cow Tale.

I've had a few incidents of pulling fillings out with Sugar Daddies in my youth. I've since learned how to chew it correctly. The Turkish Taffy kinda melts in your mouth anyway. Mmmm, candy.

Re: candy of your youth

my one-time favorites:

Razzles: first it's a candy, then it's a gum!

Space Food Sticks

A candy bar that I can't remember the name of that was a chocolate bar with four filling sections: peanut butter-ish, caramel, maybe a fudge, and I can't remember the last one either.. maybe a vanilla cream. (found it! The SkyBar. I was also a fan of the under-appreciated Zagnut.)

http://www.hometownfavorites.com

More recently I liked the "Whatchamacallit" a peanutty chocolate-covered Rice Krispie treat, essentially. I quit buying them when they added caramel, which ruined it.

Re: candy of your youth

Another fan of Black Jack gum, also Clove Gum, Good & Plenty. Not ot mention the cloying goodness of Sugar Daddies, and those peanut blocks (salty peanuts encased in hardened sugar), Raisinettes, Red Hots and Hot Tamales (Red Hots were smaller, hotter, and redder--left a telltale stain on the tongue and fingers). Necco wafers were good secondary snack at the movies--took awhile to eat the whole cylinder, plus since you couldn't see the colors it was fun to guess--always a treat to get the black licorice! I still like Baby Ruths, but perhaps not as much as in my youth. Jelly beans are still around, and I still like 'em. And those sugary fruit slices.

What I really, really love from my youth is a fine vanilla malted--heavy on the malt. And a root beer float.

Carnation used to sell a jar of just the powder to make malted milk. We used to add it to chocolate milk. Man, that was good.

Re: candy of your youth

a local ice cream shop used to make a sundae covered with hot fudge, a strip of melted marshmellow and covered in malt, he called it a dusty road.

the fruit slices reminded me of those segmented chocolate oranges. mmmm, i might have to hit the candy store tonight.

Did you know that malted milk powder was originally invented by a pharmacist as an early baby formula for mothers who had trouble nursing?

Re: candy of your youth

When I was 9, my best friend and I pooled our money to buy a gallon(?) tub of gummy bears at Price Club (now Costco), and we made a pact (for some unholy reason) to finish the entire thing that weekend.

I still can't even smell them, 22 years later. :P

Ah, Sweet Nostalgia.....

You can still buy Clove and Teaberry Gum at Cracker Barrel Restaurants. Also Fireballs and Jawbreakers. Lots of nostalgic stuff there.

Oh, if I could only find those Pepsin Chicklets.....

99.99% pure and unfiltered.

I wonder if somewhere in every bee hive, theres a little tiny toilet thats very, very cool to the touch. Which begs the question "Do bees have foreheads to rest on the very, very cool to the touch toilet bowl"?
