Over the years, there have been candies that disappeared from the market but not from our memories and Fruit Sparkles surely fall into this category which we entitle, "Missing in Action" or, better yet, "Gone but not forgotten."
Imagine our surprise when we were offered Farley's Fruit Sparkles in a mixture consisting of eight (8) different fruit flavors. To a candy buyer, this was akin to seeing a mirage in the middle of a desert and they are made by Farley & Sathers who manufactures Brachs. It doesn't get better than this!
What makes these candies so special? First, they are clear and brightly colored just like the original Sparkles of yesteryear. Second, they are individually wrapped and pack a highly realistic fruit flavor. Lastly, they remind us of a candy that we enjoyed as kids.....when life was easier and memories sweet.
Each bag of Farley's Clearly Fruits consists of 5 pounds and with approximately 80 pieces per pound. Each bag contains an assortment of Cherry, Grape, Green Apple, Lemon , Orange, Strawberry, Peach and Watermelon. Each piece of candy is about 1" wide just like the original!
