The Return of Two Candy Icons Sun, 06/2/13 8:49 AM (permalink)
Every year the candy/snack industry gets together for a three-day trade show at the Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago.  This year the expo took place May 20-23 and saw the reintroduction of two icons in the hard candy industry: Regal Crown Sours and Reeds hard candy rolls.  Regal Crown Sours had been off the market since some time in the 1980s, while Reeds had been gone since 2006.  Both came individually wrapped in long rolls, larger/thicker than lifesavers.  With any luck, you should be seeing their return to stores near you.  The Regal Crown Sours come in Cherry, Grape, Orange and Lemon flavors; the Reeds in Cinnamon, Butter Scotch, Root Beer, and Caramel.  Hope they do the originals justice – there have been some successes in reintroducing iconic candy (such as Bonomo Turkish Taffy) and some real flops (Black Cow suckers, for example).

        I must go shopping!
         
        Two of my favorites!
         
        On my list... Regal Crown Sour Lemon and Reed's Cinnamon and Root Beer.
         
        Story...
         
        I was but a young child with an even younger brother.  My mother yelled at both of us for getting in to the top drawer where she kept the Reed's Rolls and Switzer's Licorice.  They were all torn apart and a mess was left in the drawer.
         
        I blamed my brother.  My brother blamed me and my mother blamed both of us.
         
        A day or two later she apologized to both of us.  It was a mouse that did the damage.

          Reeds cinnamon candy coming back? That's great news as I've really missed them.

            I've tried the new Bonomo's Turkish Taffy and it's not as good as the original or my taste buds have changed

              You noticed that?
               
              I still buy it when I see it.
