    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?

      I have been looking for chum gum to get for my brother. As kids we loved it. We would get a couple of pennies and walk about a half mile to buy some. For the longest time I could buy it at a shop in my hometown of Kenosha , WI. Wish someone would bring it back.

    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.

    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. 😔

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • Reply Joan March 25, 2016 at 9:43 am

    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.

  • Reply Kathy July 27, 2016 at 6:22 am

    Worst decision to make on candy maker.

Please , I have cancer and I really need my certs !!!! Phase please please fruit as I have ate for 25 year !

    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.

    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!

  • Reply Bobbie Hines December 6, 2016 at 3:14 pm

    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

      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

    I miss the brown jelly bean Brach’s used to make. It must have been true cinnamon. Not the artificial stuff they call cinnamon now, but actual ground cinnamon. Please correct me if I’m wrong, I was little back then, and it’s what I had imagined it was. But they were GOOD!
