^^^ I don't know what those are.
God bless you always!!!
I don't remember 'sponge' candy, but it does look like Seafoam that has a similar center and covered in chocolate. I've never really seen it sold in most markets, only at small shops at the beach. The pieces were like 2 or 3 inches thick. It was hard & brittle and did a number on your teeth.......but still good.
There also used to be something similar only not as brittle. More of a puff, that came in both peppermint and either butter or butterscotch flavor that it would melt in your mouth and I think they were only sold around the holidays.....or atleast that was the only time I could have any. I don't remember the name and I haven't been able to find any anywhere. I loved those things.
I remember those, vaguely. There were not anything special in my past. I liked Reece's peanut butter cups, red licorice and Almond Roca. Also
No "delicious sweets" no longer exist around the world ...
The whole confectionery industry belongs to the monopolies.
- not chocolate, but a fake
- not fruits, but flavors
- not butter, but palm oil
- and so on....
all the more, in America, where they devour complete crap ...
Soviet sweets, which all children adored:
Really miss those days.

Necco (New England Confectionary Company) was sold this week for $18 million dollars. They had declared bankruptcy because of slowing sales. The company began in 1847 and Union soldiers carried Necco Wafers (with a different name back then) during the Civil War. I'm glad this is one of the older companies that hasn't disappeared into the ether lately. Hostess is also hanging on. The culture loses something when institutions, even companies, that are part of the culture go out of business.
