Mary Jane Taffy

Recently we found some of this candy..individual wrapped squares in a cello-bag, at our local Dollar Store.  Molasses and Peanut Butter Taffy Called  "MARY JANE". I love the old-fashioned Molasses sweetening !

    LOVE Mary Janes!!! My grandfather used to "hide" them (like I wasn't going to find them!). The office I've been working in lately keeps a bowl of them nearby. And Economy Candy in NYC sells thm the pound.

    I used to love Mary Janes but now they would pull the filling out of my teeth.
    Tough getting old.

    No doubt, NECCO makes the best candies (other than the high quality lines at Sees, etc).  Unfortunately, they can be hard to find since Hershey & Mars tend to monopolize all the candy selection at Grocers, drug stores, etc.
     
    My favorites include Mary Janes, Squirrel Nut caramels (not so much the zippers), their chocolate wafers (single & mixed chocolate four packs), especially their coconut Clarks bars (not so much their regular Clarks, although they are OK) and an occasional Sky Bar.
     
    I tend to find them at the discount department stores (Dollar Stores, Five Below, Benny's, etc) and some candy stores that carry the so-called "penny" or loose candies.

    I agree - Necco is single-handedly keeping some of the classic candies alive.  Their only failure I have found so far are the 4 limited edition flavors in "Mary Jane Wicked Mix" (Peanut Butter & Jelly, Peanut Butter & Banana, Smores and Peanut Butter & Vanilla) that comes out at Halloween.  They were dreadful.  I love the Clark Bar Wicked Mix, though (3 flavors, classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate and coconut).

       Are you including NECCO wafers in that one? See's on the other hand, I've been very disappointed with. My wife and I ordered a box of chocolates a couple of years back, and they were mostly stale.

    Haven't had that problem with the wafers, but several years ago, I did pick up some zippers at a Mast General Store in Banner Elk that were obviously several years old (like rocks).

    There are several sites for old time penny candy (but no longer a penny!)  When we had 50 ppl here for a pre-Wedding outdoor dinner, I ordered a whole array, including Mary Janes, and just put bowls out everywhere.  The "older generation" waxed nostalgic......the youngest generation just though it was kewl  (we also had candy lego blocks) and probably OD'd on sugar to their parents disgust.  The "medium generation" just kept asking about what all this stuff was....but they ate a bunch and all was gone.

    I've always preferred these over Mary Janes.
