Farewell to Brach’s Neapolitan Sundaes

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012 by Jessica Prokop

Brach’s Neapolitan Coconut Sundaes are classic candies that imitate a Neapolitan ice cream sundae. They were among the original candies offered by Brach’s, and have always been made from real coconut.

We’re sad to report that Brach’s Neapolitan Coconut Sundaes will be discontinued in June of 2012. We’ve got them in stock (and on sale!) so if these are your kryptonite, it’s time to place your order, warm up your time machine, and send some to your future self.

Outsmart Those Neapolitan Nabbers

Sure, some people just like coconut. But others among us have more important reasons for loving Brach’s Neapolitan Coconut Sundaes.

You know how it goes. You nab a carton of neapolitan ice cream to enjoy the trifecta of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors. Then while you slave away at work, your deadbeat roommate (or son, or husband) sneaks a scoop every few hours. Come quitting time, you wipe your brow and head home to the only reward that can lift your weary spirits. You open your freezer, lift the lid off the carton, and wail in disgust. Some nasty Neapolitan nabber has eaten all of one flavor.

Don’t let it happen to you! Brach’s Neapolitan Coconut Sundaes are the only sure way to experience the trio of Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry — any time, anywhere, without a spoon.

Stock Up for Posterity

Finding these is about to go from difficult to impossible. So stock up now and hide them well. The only problem you’ll have then will be deciding whether to eat one flavor at a time or bite across the strips of color.

  1. Dearest Brach’s,
    As a child these were one of my favorite treats. I never knew the name until recently when I was sad to discover that you have quit making them a year ago. Please, is there anyway to have a retro day and make them by accident or anywhere else to find these? I would be eternally grateful for any information leading to the purchase of these awesome candies, and I thank you so much for your time. Sincerely, Amanda Vangalis

    Bring them back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now!

  6. I am so disappointed that you are taking the Brach’s Neapolitan Coconut Sundae off the market. I use to eat these with my grandmother when I was just a little girl. I was going to buy some and give them to my mother as a memory of deceased grandmother. This was going to be a fond memory of her. She use to keep these in the house all the time to give them to her children and grandchildren when they came over. Can we find a way to get those candy flavor back on the market? This would e just wonderful if we could. I would definitely buy a large supply to have on hand for the future. Thank you so much. Pleas do us a favor and try getting that particular bulk candy continued once again. It would be a big seller. That’s a promise. I guarantee.

    All I can say is PLEASE bring back these candies! I LOVE the Neapolitan candy! It’s my absolute favorite! I can’t believe they’re discontinued and it IS a travesty! There’s no way to convey online how broken my heart is over this. My mom used to buy them all the time when I was younger. She’d give me one, maybe TWO for the whole year!! It was truly a treat because I got them so very rarely, but I LOVED them! I love them still! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!!!! PLEASE!!!!! I NEED THEM!

  15. Robin says:

    Santa always brought these in our stocking growing up. I remember they had a layer of caramel in addition to the three colors/flavors. It would be great to try them again.

  16. I only learned the name of these recently, Ive been searching for yearrs like the holy grail for these candies, i mean all over. Now I find out today that they’re discontinuing them. In like 2012, So they’re probably all gone now. I feel like Another childhood friend I grew up with died without having a chance to say goodbye. These little candies were 1 of few and very far between good memories of a childhood that felt like an 18 year sentence in hell. I really feel like crying.

  17. dear robin, responce I know right. it had 4 layers at first. I loved the chewy caramel it was like the glue that brought it all together. even with that gone it was still great. 4 layers to 3 layers and now. No Layers. This is an atrosity

  18. Audrey says:

    Awwww, got to have these candies! I luv coconut and they were my favorite. I would love to share with my children.

  19. Dawn says:

    I’ve been searching all the candy stores for these treats. I finally decided to search online only to discover they have been discontinued. I’m so sad about this. Not only was it my favorite candy as a kid, I also have sweet childhood memories of the candies. My mom always bought some of Brach’s bulk candy when she could and I always picked these out as my favorite.

  20. Carol Smith says:

    I wondered why we couldn’t find them any where.
    To Ferrara Candy Company:
    How crazy stupid that was for you to discontinue not only the Brach’s Neapolitan Coconut Sundaes with Caramel, but the “plain” Neapolitan Coconut Sundaes.
    The board members who made the decision to discontinue must have had there heads up to their shoulders ‘in a batch of chocolate’.
    Maybe the current board members can pull their heads out and make a smarter decision. Don’t take candy from ‘baby boomers’. We grew up with these two candies and want them back…please, please, please.

  21. Trisha says:

    Ugh…. I wanted my children to try these. I searched everywhere. My parents use to buy these and “try” to hide it from us (4kids)

  22. Robin Goad says:

    I’m so sad the Neapolitan Coconut Sundaes candies are discontinued!! It’s the end of an era. Sad day for Americana. Please consider bringing them back.

  23. Margrett says:

    Your customers are begging you, please I beseech you please. Listen to your dedicated customers, bring them back, why were they discontinued anyway they were very popular.

  24. Brian says:

    i don’t know why you discontinued making the Neapolitan coconut candies but i wish you would reconsider to me they are the first candies i remember getting from my grandmother when i was a child and the last candies she gave to my son 2 days before she passed away, they bring back good memories of sitting with my father and just getting a bag of Neapolitan candies to go play catch.I know they are just a piece of candy but they bring back so many good memories that mean so much but everything comes to a end so with that i just want to say thank you to all of the people who made the candy .

  25. Gris Moreno says:

    I loved these coconut candies….I used to just take one at the stores snd eat it while my parents were grocery shopping. …until recently I was still looking for them…wishing I would find them to show my kids….so sad…

  26. Azalea Price says:

    I love these candies and miss them dearly. Please consider bringing them back.

  27. Jose says:

    i can’t believe you are getting rid of another one of my favorite candys. Just like you did my red licorice years ago. Man you guys make some piss poor decisions.

  28. Sandy C says:

    PLEASE….PLEASE….Bring these back!! These were my very favorite of all your Brach’s line. I would stock on up these as a child…(we could only go to the store on Sat.,)…so we had to make our candy last all week long. It was hard to do, but we tried. I can’t believe they have been taken off the market. I know there are so many still out there that want & will buy these again. I love the jelly nougat and the choc. and white swirled nougat as well. Those must have been taken off the market too because I can no longer find them. I promise you…the baby boomers will buy this candy…and there are a lot of baby boomers out there!

  29. Dawn McKim says:

    I was just doing a google search to make sure i wasnt crazy for thinking these fabulously delicious coconut neopolitin sundae candies ever had caramel to find this deeply disappointing news. It breaks my heart to know they stopped making this wonderful treat. I too, grew up loving these candies, and have searched high and low and all that in between to find these with no luck. Please bring these back!!! It would be a detriment to society if you didn’t.

  30. Carrie Cupp says:

    Please bring the “pink white and brown” candy back! Please! I just looked it up because I was missing my grandma and they remind me of her, but they are gone! It’s like another death in the family!

  31. Ron says:

    Please bring them back. i want my grandchilfdren to try them just like i introduced my kids to those pieces of deliciiusness.

  32. neecee says:

    Please bring these retro Coconut Neapolitan Sundaes and unbreak my heart!!! Pretty please with sugar on top!

  33. neecee says:

    Please bring them back!

  34. kristin jagelski says:

    Coconut and coconut oil are at an all time popularity high. So are products free of wheat gluten, which I suspect the Neapolitans are. Were they egg free? I’m not sure, but it seems like the Neapolitans would sell pretty well as allergen free.

  44. Michele Hargraves says:

    So many people love them, love you, are looking for them and wish for them to return. πŸ™‚

  45. Harah Carnally says:

    +1 vote for bringing them back.

  46. So Wrong says:

    I can’t imagine that the world has run out of coconuts, so it’s possible that you’ve only misplaced the recipe. Since it seems a simple one, that most any simpleton could reproduce, perhaps someone will find it, and get busy.

  47. mary says:

    It’s a sin to take these off the market!!! I can’t believe I just found out about this.I would hunt down Giant Eagle for these…such a SIN!!! Bring the candies backs selfish manufacturers!!!!!

  48. Weeesty says:

    The Coconut Neapolitans were my absolute favorite! First they take away the Marathon Bar and now this…just plain silly!

  49. Vicky Malone says:

    Please start making the original flavor again. I have tried to find these candies for so long. My grandmother and I used to enjoy our favorite candy under the big oak. Bring them back! I want my grandchildren to have the same great memories! Please

    I was going to buy some for my mom for Mother’s Day because she asked for them the other day. I haven’t been able to find them, had no idea they aren’t made anymore. Please bring them back to make an 89 year old woman very happy!!

  55. Connie Smith says:

    Its terrible to take such a popular item off the market. These candies were awesome!!! BRING THEM BACK! Its even hard now to find the brachs brand chocolate stars, bridge mix, malted milk balls, etc. What the hell is wrong with you (the new company that brought Brach’s)? These candies were the best and you could make a killing off of them. Doesn’t make sense.
