Milk Duds, what’s with the name?

Many old-time candies have really strange names, and Milk Duds are no exception. These were clearly invented before the age of focus groups. Can you imagine a company today naming anything a dud?

I am a fan of the Duds. I like the retro-looking packaging and I appreciate that they also come in a milk carton (for easy pouring?).  They do claim to have 10% of your daily calcium requirement, and are Kosher, too!.

These chocolate covered caramels are really chewy. Do not refrigerate them because they will be like chewing a candle.  Don’t let them get too warm, or they will become a sticky lump, glued to the inside of the box. Once they get that way, there’s no saving them.

I will be looking for these in my kids’ Halloween treat bags and squirreling the tiny yellow boxes away for myself.

Next week Milk Duds vs. Rolos….
