I know these aren't exactly regional but I had a couple questions about these:

- When did they get so darn small?

- Are the single packs (comprised of two large gobstoppers in a cello wrapper) still available?

Way ahead of you.

I also stock up on another favorite candy, Bottle Caps, at this time of year as well. This treat goes MIA during the rest of the year for reason.

I'm referring specifically to Wonka/Nestle brand ELGS.

Went to the candy store just for this thread (at least that is what I told my self)

They had Nestle/Wonka ELGS in:

Chewy Packs
Family Pack Boxes
Theatre Pack Boxes

2 sizes, the first about the size of a quarter, the second (bubble gum machine filler) the size of a nickel

The candy store also had "Gobstoppers" which were in all sizes from marble to tennis ball, these were not Wonka/Nestle.

Of course thay set the two beside each other and when you see the name GOBSTOPPER everyone thinks ALL are gobstoppers. Sorry for the confusion.
