Everlasting Gobstoppers

I know these aren't exactly regional but I had a couple questions about these:

- When did they get so darn small?

- Are the single packs (comprised of two large gobstoppers in a cello wrapper) still available?

    Way ahead of you.

    I also stock up on another favorite candy, Bottle Caps, at this time of year as well. This treat goes MIA during the rest of the year for reason.

    There are different sizes of ELGS around here from marble size to durn near tennis ball size. (Benefits of having a local candy store)

    I'm referring specifically to Wonka/Nestle brand ELGS.

    Lance

    Went to the candy store just for this thread (at least that is what I told my self)

    They had Nestle/Wonka ELGS in:

    Chewy Packs
    Family Pack Boxes
    Theatre Pack Boxes

    2 sizes, the first about the size of a quarter, the second (bubble gum machine filler) the size of a nickel

    The candy store also had "Gobstoppers" which were in all sizes from marble to tennis ball, these were not Wonka/Nestle.

    Of course thay set the two beside each other and when you see the name GOBSTOPPER everyone thinks ALL are gobstoppers. Sorry for the confusion.
