Vintage Candy

Do you ever get a craving for a candy you know isn't sold in stores these days? Mine is York Peppermint Patty Bites. They came in bags like the Reese's Bites and Hershey's Bites and other candy bars rolled up into a bite-sized ball form. They were soooo good in the freezer. Alas, they discontinued them, I think in favor of the York Mints. I enjoy those too, but they aren't the same. Anyway, thanks to our own Neatoramanaut SparkS, we now have a link to CandyDirect, a place where you can possibly relive your childhood by purchasing that discontinued candy you haven't seen in years. They have everything from bubble gum cigars and candy cigarettes (which have long been discontinued in that format since it pretty much encourages kids to smoke) to Violet mints, you'll find almost anything you want. Except for York Peppermint Patty Bites.

Frau - Think I'll stick with the Butterfingers. Those things have coconut and peanuts in them. Doesn't sound anything like Butterfingers.

There is a Death Valley Candy and Nut company in Beatty, Nevada that sells ALL of these candies. Even an old timey casino next door. I believe it is on Rt 93 or Rt 95 can't remember which
