The Mother Lode...

I was visiting family in Syracuse Easter weekend and was on a search for some very specific macadamia nuts. Instead I found a bounty of hard to obtain candy at a Kinney Drugs store on Rte. 57 (Oswego Road). So naturally, I posed them for their close-up, Mr. DeMille. I know these can probably be obtained by the case or in a gift basket through any number of online sources, but its nice to find a store where I can just buy one or two if I want. The Smoothie (a childhood favorite of mine) in particular is hard to find in any retail store. And I got the 6-pack of Goo-Goo Clusters for only $1.78! I don't think I've seen Valomilks or SkyBars outside of a Cracker Barrel in some time. Enjoy the pic.

    Wow! Great haul.

    I don't think I've ever seen the Haviland Wintergreen Patty.

    I love the Bun Maple, they're very hard to find.

    I didn't know zero's and goo goo clusters were hard to find everywhere. I must be lucky cause I'd not like a world with no goo goo clusters.

    I've never heard of the other stuff. The Valomilk looks interesting. What is it like?

    There may be more than one type of Valomilk but the one that I have always enjoyed had a chocolate exterior with a marshmellow interior.

    Personally, I like them.

    Here's a very long series of articles I wrote on my experience with the Valomilk:

    www.typetive.com/candyblog/category/valomilk

    As far as I know, the Valomilk folks only make one candy now. It's the chocolate cup with the flowing vanilla cream center (not quite a marshmallow because it's not frothy).

    If anyone is into the small town regional favorites, you might want pick up a copy of Candy Freak by Steve Almond. It features a whole chapter on the Valomilk.
