    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 just discovered another one: "Twin Bing." Has anyone here tried it?

                          They have the bing cherry sour balls at Wal-Mart in the movie theatre sized boxes .. about .88 cents ... not as great as they use to be but still tasty

                            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.

                                    Charms cherry candies----I wish they still made those, like little Charms pops minus the stick and in a roll.

                                        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

                                            Although not my favorite, tootsie pops has a bag full of cherry flavored for Valentines day.Bought a bag to hold me over.

                                              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...
