Wasn't that made by See's. I remember buying it a few times to help the neighbor kids.
I'm pretty sure our fund-raiser candy bars (in CA) were made by See's. The ones sold here are made by America's Finest Chocolate (I think part of Reader's Digest). Not as good as See's, but still good.

By any chance, do you the "World's Finest Chocolate" ? I used to sell that stuff when I was a kid in Band. The bars, with almonds, were good, chocolate-covered almonds were good, but what was killer were the Mint Chocolate squares. About half a cubic centimeter of mint chocolate, with a little dark chocolate poured over the top.

One year, I actually reached second place in sales, and won the 5 lb bar of chocolate. I never really could eat the stuff after that thing (and I didn't get to eat much of it, either!).

Personally, I like gummi worms and bears, sour gummi worms, and since we're coming up on Halloween, candy corn, and a few other seasonal treats. I also have a taste for homemade fudge, but don't normally make much myself.

I'm not sure what you're asking (I think you left a word or two out), but the kids here sell World's Finest Chocolate bars. I don't think I've seen the mints, but they sure sound good!

I also love those "Lifesavers-N-Cream".. I think that's what they're called. My favorite is the strawberry.
