    I don't know what they're called, but in the 70's Sears had candy/nut departments. They had sour cherry, round, jelly bean, type things about the size of a marble. I think they were called swedish cherries, (they weren't like swedish fish). I remember when we would go to Sears just opening the door you could smell the different roasted nuts, and that crazy popcorn machine that kept blowing around the popped kernels in what looked like an anniversary clock glass dome.

    Used to be Cherry Nibs. Now they are made by the Twizzler people and they are just not the same.

    I used to love Baraccini's (sp) chocolate-covered cherries. Bartons, too.

    The old triangular Vicks cough drops with Luden's and Smith Brothers a close second.

    I'm just now finishing up a bag of cherry flavor Ocean Spray Craisins (dried cranberries).
    Pretty good.

    Brach's made a licorice in individual packs called "Cherry Twisters" that was awesome, but it has sadly been discontinued.

    Here's another favorite:

    I absolutely love Cella's chocolate covered cherries. They have to be Cella's as they are 100% liquid center. That's what I like about them. If they could put a good liquor in there, that would really kick it up a notch.

    Hello All,
    I love Chocolate Covered Cherries, all brands,
    but am on the lower-class end in that I prefer
    "Queen Anne."
    Cherry taffy is so good, but must be soft on my aging
    teeth.
    Cherry tootsie pops abd toostie rolls are wonderous.
    Cherry vodka is rather unique, and I need add a scoop
    of vanilla ice-cream with it to make a drink I like.
    But my favorite is just a natural Bing Cherry.
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle

    Hey Mike,

    It's not amazing what you could get away with back then, it's a BIG disgrace what this plain-jane, let's not step on ANYONE'S toes, world has degenerated into...AND before the yelling starts...I'm of Polish extraction and I used to laugh at the Polish jokes back then...at least the good ones

    Ducking and hiding,
    Stan...
