Does anyone remember Old Fashions?

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.

    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....
