This is the place to memorialize those candies that are no longer with us….
Let us not forget the Marathon Bar.
Almost a foot of chocolate-covered, braided candy. It was so good. There was a ruler on the back of the package so you could measure your calorie intake by the inch. Although it has been discontinued, Cardbury’s Curly Wurly is an adequate substitute. You can find the Curly Wurly where imported candies are sold.
Luckily, Cabury comes through again with the Flake. A candy bar very similar to the Choco’lite. The Brits truly appreciate their candy, and I thank them for that!
Thank you Nello Ferrrara!
The creator of the “atomic fireball” passed away on 2/8/2012. I want to thank him for inventing such an iconic and addicting candy. I will think of him each time I feel that cinnamon burn in my mouth….seriously, I think I’m addicted.
