Why do some foods go "out of style"? The foods I'm thinking about right now are candies. I just ate a packages of Chuckles, sugar-coated jellie candies in assorted flavors which are cherry, lemon, orange, licorice, and lime. I bought them a few weeks ago at a small confectionary in Niswa, MN. They were as good as I remembered. I also bought a package of Mallo Cup - two chocolate cups filled with a whipped marshmallow creme center. I'll save these for another time. I asked if the store had Black Jack Taffy. They had none.

When I was a kid, I liked a candy bar made by Pearson's - 7-Up Bar. I loved 6 of the seven sections - I didn't like the orange jelly.

Remember Neccos--wafer like candy--and black licorice pipes, candy cigarettes.

I could go for some Pearson's Salted Nut Grandpa always had them stashed around. Are they a Minnesota delicacy (like tatertot hotdish)?

Our nice Farm Fresh grocery store has a little kiosk solely devoted to...old(?) brands of candy, like Chuckles.
