    I can’t help but think of those delicious little mint humbugs that my grandmother always gave me. I remember them so well from my childhood. They were a brown and white striped hard minty candy on the outside with a softer, chewier finish.

    Mint humbugs were a British candy. So delicious, they even featured a role in the Harry Potter feasts at Hogwarts. Professor Dumbledore loved the “muggle” sweets!

    My husband’s favorite candy was the blue mint coolers. I have ordered them by the pound, so I could get enough to last him a year at a time.
    I am very sorry that you have chosen to discontinue them. How am I going to keep him happy now?

    General Question about discontinued candy. Naturally, some discontinued candy brings back memories, but getting beyond the obvious I’d like to ask why are they discontinued – is it sales, is it ingredients? I know in some cases companies take over other companies and maybe the new company’s equipment is not geared towards making a candy.

    I can\’t believe they discontinued these candy bars. I used to go and buy them by the box. They were so delicious! I hope they get so many comments of people wanting them around again and they make the decision to sell them again. It seems like that happens everytime they sell something so good.

    For years I have been searching for this stick bubble gum called “Chum Gum”. I last had it around 1971-72 and purchased it in a little Mom & Pop store off the Fellsway in Medford, MA. It came in a 5-stick pack that was white with the words “Chum Gum” in Navy Blue with some red highlights on the pack. The gum itself was Hot Pink in color and had the most unique flavor. It was like nothing else I’ve ever tasted and was delicious! Anyone out there who remembers this product, or where it might be still available?

  9. Kim says:

    Nicole, I feel your pain! Wacky Wafers are no longer? That was my go to at the local market – and I always saved the green apple for last! So sad…

  10. Wazoo bars where can I get them? Please help I love them. When they stop selling them I bought every BOX I could get my hands on.

  11. Emily says:

  12. Lisa says:

    I got to this page searching for Milkshake Bars. I remember eating them frozen at the South Park Swimming Pool on Corrigan Drive as a youngster.

  13. Roxanna Packer says:

    My grandparents owned a small hamburger joint & they sold “MILKSHAKE” candy bars. He would keep some in the freezer so you could have your choice of frozen or not…they were so good! Also missing the cherry hump bars. 😔

  14. David says:

    Frozen Milkshake bars. Reminds me of camping. Milky Ways don’t even come close. And whatever happened to Welches Fudge bars?

  15. Joyce says:

    Bummer! So wish the Marathon candy bar was still around, one of my faves!😪

  16. Laura says:

    Almost cried because they don’t make Branchs dem bones anymore. Why do they always discontinue the best items just to make room for bs items that don’t even taste good at all. BRING BACK DEM BONES

  17. Ed says:

  19. Michele says:

    Does anyone know what company produced the milkshake bars. They were the best frozen and fresh. Nothing today even compares to it. We used to smash the frozen ones and eat the little frozen bite size pieces.

  20. Donna Tenaglia says:

    The Marathon candy bar IS still available, it is now called the Curly Wurly, is made by Cadbury and is available on the internet, comes to you from England. I buy them for my mother, they are exactly the same is the marathon, even the same braided shape.

  21. Donna Tenaglia says:

    Bring back the Wonka Scrunch bar! The BEST candy bar on the planet! I read a story on the net that the Scrunch was and is Johnny Depp’s favorite bar too!

  22. Rev Ted former Marine says:

    Hi Noon candy bars were my favorite candy back in the mid fifties. At the local record hop at the American Legion I always bought at least one bar and sometimes two. I have looked everywhere including retro candy shops and couldn’t find them. I miss them more than any food product. As a Marine and later Army Officer I travelled the world but always keeping an eye out. I am so sad today in 2016 of finding out that they were discontinued. Thanks so much for the candy you supply and the website. I retired as a pastor.

  23. Joan says:

    I enjoyed Smith Brothers cough drops, licorice very much. I discovered them recently only to find out, you ran out of them. Hopefully the maker will produce again. Only cough drop I like, only cough drop I will use. Please make them again.

  24. Kathy says:

    Worst decision to make on candy maker. Not to mention the thousands of dollars lost , this is a detriment to your company so my advice would be to the people what we want & bring them back ASAP !!!! Like as in yesterday! Please , I have cancer and I really need my certs !!!! Phase please please fruit as I have ate for 25 year !

  25. Aimee Hileman says:

    Please start making milkshake Candy’s bars again.

  26. Margaret says:

    I am looking for those childhood Raspberry Dollars !!!
    Do u have them ?

  27. Mike Norton says:

    Wintergreen Certs have been my favorite for decades. My grandchildren get in my car and the first thing they say is “Certs”. I no longer have that special moment with them. The memory will fade. I WANT MY WINTERGREEN CERTS BACK. AND SO DO MY GRANDCHILDREN.

  28. Ann Pennewill says:

    I agree with Dee, #8 from 1-14-15. I have looked everywhere for Chum Gum for years. I can still taste it, but can’t describe the flavor, except excellent!

  29. Bobbie Hines says:

    I can’t believe they stopped making CERTS Breath Mints. I have used them for more than 30 years. Any chance they will reintroduce Certs?

    Is there anywhere that still have some? I’ve depleted the stores in Detroit MI

  30. LAUREN DUGGAN says:

  33. Edna says:

    I have used Certs Peppermint breath mints since 1965. PLEASE BRING THEM BACK! Or at least tell me where I could buy some other than eBay.

  35. Dawn Munson says:

    What happened to Nestles Chocalite candy bar? The crocadile did the commercial. It was a chocolate bar with air crisped chocolate inside it. Oh so delicious. Miss it can’t find it..Yumm, yumm…😄😄😄😄😃😃😃😃

  36. Jonah Half says:

    Marathon Bars were a classic and are the MOST requested retro candy that we once offered. Hard to imagine that a candy company didn’t bring them back… Hmmm

  37. Cheryl says:

    I cant believe they discontinued Certs Mints .
