VerMints: cost about as much as Altoids but without the junk in them. Real cinnamon, peppermint, ginger, etc. And they got sued by the state of Vermont who didn’t like their name.

States visited? The same number as the last time this was asked. Don’t get around much anymore.

Don’t eat much candy anymore – but I usually eat my “leftover” Halloween candy from Costco. Childhood favorites were: Cracker Jack, Tootsie Roll Pops, Hot Tamales, M&M’s Peanuts, Double Bubble bubblegum, Lifesavers (the original flavors (“green” , lemon, orange, etc. Enjoy your afternoon, all..

I always got some in my Christmas stocking each year, usually didn’t last to the next day, no matter the container size. It could be a “destination road trip” now…..the mountain on the rapper is Mt. Shasta, previously Mt. Tacoma…..https://www.brown-haley.com/

I used to enjoy a Baffle Bar once in a while. It was made by the same company that makes U-NO, but was discontinued in the 70s.

nytemuvr October 24, 2023 - 7:57 PM - 7:57 PM

@DAWG….The U-NO and Baffle bar production line used to be on old Franqette Ave. when it connected to Meadow Ln. in Concord, they were a local company. We had a field trip when I was at Meadow Homes School, we walked from school to the factory and got a free candy bar.

I moved here in the 90’s, so this was the first I had heard of that. Thank you for sharing that, I really appreciate getting to know.

Dr. Jellyfinger October 28, 2023 - 6:47 PM - 6:47 PM

Geez Nytemuvr, I’m about the same vintage as you & I never got walked (or bussed) to that candy factory.
Only place I ever saw was the Jelly Belly Factory with that big Jelly Belly Ronald Reagan mosaic all the way out to Fairfield…. and that was as a chaperone with my daughter’s school!

No fair!

nytemuvr October 29, 2023 - 7:52 AM - 7:52 AM

@DR. JELLYFINGER….We did the same thing to the Crystal Milk production line on Market St. I remember it so well because we walked past my house up Detroit Ave. We did take a bus to the Benicia State Capital in ’63, I took pictures with my first camera, and to Sutter’s Fort.

Dorothy October 24, 2023 - 2:54 PM - 2:54 PM

The one’s they don’t seem to make anymore. Can’t have most of the rest.

See’s buttercreams, especially milk chocolate Bordeauxs or Mayfairs….Store bought Clark Bars, only found them at vintage candy stores now…and often stale. They used to be my favorite as a kid, and don’t forget Chicken Stix.

I cannot remember the last time I had candy. Probably a mint in a restaurant. Huh, that’s weird. Not like I’m against candy or anything. Unexpected question.

Trader Joe’s makes a killer dark chocolate peanut butter cup. I was hooked on them for a while but I’ve cut down on the sugar/candy thing since. TJ’s also has organic dark chocolate bars and dark chocolate truffle bars that rock and are cheap! Like $1.99 each. Otherwise a Reese’s peanut butter cup or Hershey chocolate bar would suffice.

RunDog October 24, 2023 - 8:44 PM - 8:44 PM

See’s Milk Chocolate Molasses Chips, Milk Chocolate Buttercreams, especially the Bordeaux, 😃 Mars Bar, Milky Way, Hershey Bar, M&Ms, that Chewy Carmel bar with Peanuts all over it, those Mountain Bars were really good, Almond Roca, Thin Mints, those round, spiral-pinwheel mints, Haribo (sp?) Blackberry gummies, thay look and taste like actual berries, Butterfinger.

Walnettos!! Walnettos were a local candy made from local Walnuts in the ‘50s and ‘60s. I think there’re was a Chocolate Walnettos version, too. The owner of the company lived on Pine Hollow Road at Alberta Way before Ygnacio Valley Road went through.

I don’t buy candy because I can’t resist it. I ended up in the Emergency Room one yesr because I ate too many of those Halloween mini-Butterfingers. Allergy.

I tend to have seasonally based favorites. I have a tremendous weakness around Halloween for Butterfinger and Baby Ruth. Outside of Halloween, never touch them. At Christmas, I do a lot of damage with See’s toffee or toffee-ettes (and egg nog, not a candy). Easter, those darn Cadbury eggs.

Beanzy October 24, 2023 - 9:21 PM - 9:21 PM

My favorite candy now is Costco’s Macadamia Chocolates. They’re kinda like chocolate turtles — chocolate-covered gooey and kinda hard caramels with macadamia nuts. So yummy.

Hanne Jeppesen October 24, 2023 - 10:38 PM - 10:38 PM

Lindts Milk Chocolate with hazelnuts or praline. German or Danish (Anton Berg) marcipan. You use to be able to get Anton Berg marcipan at Cost Plus at Christmas time, they had different flavors, plain, one with cognac and one with truffles, all great. Also like salty (very salty) soft licorice. Cost Plus have some from Holland that taste like the one I grew up with.

My partner is in love with that Finnish brand of licorice, Panda I think? But I always liked the Gin-gin candies from Cost Plus. TR hen I figured out how to candy the ginger myself and it’s just too good.

Go in late spring. After the cold and before the mosquitoes. The mosquitoes are bigger than you’d think could grow in Alaska and everywhere in early summer. Also crazy expensive, like Waikiki expensive.

@ATTICUS THRAXX~

Yes, the mosquitoes in Alaska are crazy big.
Plus, of course, expensive, …. we were in Cordova, Alaska, … in 2019.
Can only get there by airplane and the Ferry, if that’s still operating.
