Trying to Remember a Candy
Hope someone can help me here. I'm trying to remember the name of a candy that was sold some 40 or so years ago so if you don't know, I'd appreciate it if you could ask others who are about 50 yrs. or older as they may remember. I used to buy a box of candy that was on a rack with other boxes of candy at a store near me that no longer exists. The box was about 3" wide and about 2" high and about 1/4" deep and was a yellow box that had black and charcoal colors/writing on it. Inside the box were these square pillows of candy that were maybe 1/4" in diameter and had ridges on at least one side of them....it looked like someone had run the tines of a fork over them. They were light or medium gray in color. They had an odd taste that I can still remember to this day, and some of the kids hated them and used to laugh and call them "soapies" cause they said they tasted like soap (but "I" didn't think so). Not sure, but they "may" have been a breath candy. Somehow the name Heidi comes to mind........wasn't there a company named Heidi that used to make candy? Not sure if this is the company that made these candies. I'm from Philadelphia, PA, but this doesn't mean these candies weren't sold elsewhere. I wish there was a website that showed every candy ever made. I've done quite a bit of searching in the nostalgic candy department but haven't seen anything that looks like this candy, and I can't search any other way cause I don't remember what they were called. Hope someone remembers! Thanks!
