Vintage or Elusive Candy

Love. Gone forever.

Love. Not easy to find in some parts of the country.

Still available, but at $1.00 for 10

Wowee wax whistle. A favorite at Hallowe’en time.  Gone forever.

Teaberry gum. Still available. Long my favorite in high school.

A movie theatre standby, as ubiquitous as Raisinets. Loved these little guys.  Still available.

B-B Bats. A favorite at the penny candy store, often bought in conjunction with Sugar Daddy bars. Still available.

Chunky. Still available, although the original used to be wrapped more tightly, and cost 5¢ back in the day.

So many more, and most are listed elsewhere on the Interwebz.

And now, let us pause for a moment of silence:

Third from the top – Sara Lee All Butter Chocolate Brownies. Came in a frozen tin; you took the cardboard lid off, and there was a little paper cutting guide, which I routinely ignored, cutting myself massive slabs straight from the freezer. I pester Sara Lee to bring these back on a regular basis. Perhaps they will someday – after all,

was successfully resurrected from the dead because enough people clamored for it.

I’ll keep clamoring.

The Old Wolf has spoken.

[Edit: Ooh, I forgot one.]

Used to get these when I’d go ice skating in New York. They were my favorite, sort of a cross between a Milky Way and  a Three Musketeers. Gone forever.

The Old Wolf has spoken again.

  1. I remember Arnold Stang promoting Chunky “Whatta chunk of chocolate!” and grew up on Milkshake candy bars, many times they had a stick in them and were in the coolers. Bring back Milkshakes….

  2. So THAT is what Jujubes are!

    “Out there beyond that fence every living thing that crawls, flies, or squats in the mud wants to kill you and eat your eyeballs for jujubes.”

  4. Sara Lee frozen brownies!!!! They were like crack. My best friend an I would open a package of them and eat the whole thing in one sitting!

  5. The Coconut Grove one looks rather like our Bounty chocolates, which also come as two small bars in one pack and, to my knowledge, are still very much available in stores around here … and somehow I now have this strange craving for one … just one … maybe two?
