Slow pokes and bit-o-honeys - they're just crystalized sugar, but really great when you're smaller.

Discontinued ancient, addictive candy

The Vermont Country Store also has a variety of old time candy. They have a catalog and a website.

They were almost hard, and it took quite a while to finish each one. Each colour had a very distinctive flavour, and just like in "A Fish Called Wanda," we avoided the green ones because they weren't ripe yet.

Those are Jujubes, no?

Ah yes...Jujubes, a dentists best friend. I must have had 3 fillings pulled out chewing on those as a kid.

Yes, Amazon lists Le Vie candy fruit drops...as discontinued/unavailable tho. I have a World Market near me, I'll try there.

But they were so good. They cost less than that when I was a kid. I remember David's and Sons sunflower seeds costing only a nickel a bag and a Hershey's candy bar was less than a dime, I think. You could go to the candy store with a quarter and toss on all the candy you were able to buy.
