Cherrymash Sun, 10/23/05 1:05 AM (permalink)
Do people "really" like them?

Was in the Dallas area last week and saw it. Thinking it was a regional candy I picked it up. It's not as it's made in MO. I'd never had one, though so I bought it.

All I can say is YUCK!

They even have a website with testimonials. HUH?

And what's with the pink peanut patties?

    I saw them once at HY-VEE grocery store and tried one. I liked it! But have never seen them since!

        Cherry Mash is (Cherry Mashes are{?})made in St. Joseph, MO; my darling wife's hometown. Everytime we go back to visit, we pass the Cherry Mash factory on the east side of I-29 and have a good laugh about how revoltingly sweet they are. This year I tasted one for the first time after 26 years of marriage and thought it was goldarned awful (the Cherry Mash, not the last 26 years). My wife swears they tasted better when she was a kid. This of course leads to the discussion; did your taste buds mature or have they changed the recipe? The wife thinks the latter, refusing to believe that her tongue could have deteriorated so radically. Personally, I can't believe they ever tasted good, but there you go.

        On the other hand, I've recently seen, north of the Mason Dixon Line, a resurgence of Goo-Goo Clusters, and they taste great!

          I went to Sweetie's Candy Store in Cleveland today (they carry a lot of retro candy), and I remembered hearing something about Cherry Mash so I bought one. WOW ! talk about sweet...I may have found something to cure me of my sweet tooth !

            The "pink patties" are peanut pralines. I've been living in Dallas for over 40 years and I still won't eat them.
            I love the (brown) pecan pralines, though.

              I love the occasional Cherry Mash but, I'd eat Goo-Goo Clusters everyday If I could.
