Does anyone remember Old Fashions? Fri, 07/13/07 1:52 PM (permalink)
When I was a kid, my grandmother used to only eat certain types of candies. One of these kinds were referred to as "Old Fashions". From what I remember, they were chocolate with vanilla creme inside. The shape was almost similar to a dome...or as some of my friends have suggested..like a large nipple. Does anyone remember anything like these? If so, is the name Old Fashions correct? Also, how do I find them? They were so good!

    I remember them being called Creme Drops. They came in a white paper bag printed with brown and orange, with the top folded over and sealed. That's all I recall, other than the filling being not too runny and the shape being as you describe. The coating was milk chocolate, not dark.

              Where I live, old fashions are what we call the oddly constructed cheeseburgers similar to what they serve at Shady Glen in Connecticut.

              http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=14

              There are several bars near me that serve these.

                  When I saw the heading of this topic, I gleefully thought about the old fashioned cocktail my uncle used to make...however, I know the candy described can be found at The Vermont Candy Store....

                    Thanks for all of your help...I just found out that they also sell them at Yummies Candy Store up in Kittery Maine.
