Red Dollars were introduced in 1926 as oval pieces of gum emblazoned with a dollar sign, but back then the name had nothing to do with the flavor.  Over the years, this edible currency has seen fluctuations -- now, the assortment includes a multitude of different world currency markings -- but the value of the delicious flavor continues to increase.

Perhaps Red Dollars are not a hedge against inflation but they sure are an investment against going hungry especially when you desire their delicious cherry flavor and fun to eat chewy texture.

Here's a fun fact --  Red Dollar derives from a slang expression that means something new, popular, or innovative, and it wasn’t until the 1940’s that the name was changed to Red  Dollars to reflect  the candy that everybody loves. 

Delicious to eat and a good value too is why Red Dollars are one of the most sought after gummi candies that we offer not to mention amongst the hardest to find.  I guess we can chalk that up to "supply and demand."

Please note that as of 2012, these candies are now made by the Ferrara and have a "new and improved" cherry flavor and we are handpacking them in 4 lb. bags to ensure freshness!

My Father, now 93 years
My Father, now 93 years old, insists that the cherry dollars need to be fresh, almost "spongy" if possible, have an authentic cherry flavor, and not tear-out his dental work. THESE ARE THE ONES TO BUY!!! IF MY DAD LOVE S THEM--AND HE DOES--THEN THESE ARE THE ABSOLUTE MONEY CAN BUY!!!

I had a 2 pound bag flown from PA to OH, with an ice pouch, then I had t0 reship to (far) souther Texas, just to please him. i could have saved a lot of shipping cost by going direct, but that would not work in this situation. I ordered late, needed special handling in terms of the softness of the candy, and I was not disappointed. Of course we are talking about PA, USA, here, and there are very few better places on earth than Cleveland, OH where I live to watch the Browns and Indians and Cavaliers always come close but never quite make it. I think in retrospect that Dad was right to move to the Mexican Border, where stress could be controlled by Father's Day, with a 2 pound bag of the best, softest, freshest, most flavorable "1950" style Cherry Dollar candies in the Universe.

The Cherry Red Dollars are
The Cherry Red Dollars are just what I remember from years ago! I thought I would never find them again - the last time I bought some (from a store), they weren't anything like I wanted or remembered. I love the flavor, color and chewy texture of the Cherry Red Dollars from CandyFavorites.com and will definitely purchase them again.

Excited to find Red Dollars!
To my Favorite Candy People,

I grew up in Hoboken NJ in the projects and was born in 1951. We had a candy store at the bottom of our apartment much like the old fashion candy store you talk about in your advertisement. I would find Coke bottles and turn them in to buy the RED Dollar which were 2 for a penny at that time. Every day as I did my homework and watch Howdy Doody and I would try make the two licorice candies last as long as I possible could. Very fond memory.

When our family moved to California in 1960 I looked for the RED DOLLARS in the San Jose area but to no avail. Every time we would go somewhere I would look. Never found them anywhere.

I’m 61 now and two weeks ago a co-worker of mine gave me some candy from CANDY FAVORITES. He explained how you folks had the candies in groups of decades which got me thinking.

You have no idea how excited I was when I found MY RED DOLLAR ( 1930’s ) candies.

What can I say?

Thank you
Rich

Q: Is it possible to get the "hot" cinnamon flavored red hot dollars? I' 've been hankering for some of those chewy goodies. Thanks!
Candy Expert
A: The classic Hot Cinnamon Red Dollars that we all knew and loved were discontinued a few years ago and there are no manufacturers currently offering them. The only flavors available are cherry and raspberry.
