      I remember a banana flavored taffy bar with a thin layer of chocolate inside. The bar was called Go Bananas or Go Go Bananas. I think it was made be Leaf company but not sure. Any one know where to find it?

      You skipped one of my favorites. I believe they were called dots, and they were small candy dots on a page that you had to pull off.

      @uniqcorn: You can order them from Necco or Amazon, but lots of times they're only available during Christmas. You may be able to find them at a local farmer's market. That's where I have found them before. Good luck!

      Does anyone know where I can find peach blossoms candy? It has a peach colored pillow shaped shell with peanut butter inside. I remember my grandmother used to have it in her candy dish all the time. The Necco company used to make it but I don't know if they still do. Thanks!

      I used to love Jawbreakers as a kid but now that I'm getting older, I'm afraid to eat them because of my oh, so fragile teeth! :'-(
