Clark bars are always hard as rocks whenever I've tasted them.

I have seen Butterfingers here all time, but I haven't paid attention lately to the candy in store lately.

I saw Alphabet cereal at the store first time in years. I had forgotten about the cereal until I saw it.

I THINK that Alpha Bits are still pretty readily available around here.

I was in an old fashioned candy store in Coney Island the other day and found Bit o Honey. Haven't had that in years.

That candy has a very distinctive flavor. I've never had anything else that tastes quite like a Bit-o-Honey.

That's cool. I remember that I loved better than anything chocolate.

I LOVE Bit O Honey. My work used to put them in the kitchen. Now, they have peppermints. (sigh)

Well, I used to like Alpha Bits cereal quite a bit as a kid...USED to. I saw a box the last time I shopped at the local Target, so I picked it up. Had some for breakfast this morning... I'm not one to waste food, but I'm actually thinking about throwing the rest out. now have a bit of a glazed look to them, whereas they never used to. There's a lot of crunch - and some "bits" were harder and crunchier than others, which doesn't seem right with a cereal where all the pieces look alike. Mostly, however, there was no discernible flavor whatsoever. Disappointed - but I think I have a blog topic for today, so that's always a good thing.

I used to love Alpha Bits too, but nobody has had them here in over a decade. I bet the changed the formula and ruined them, like so many other things over the years.

I remember my mom's tomato preserves.......and the lemon slice in it we all fought over whenever she opened a jar. No written recipe and she doesn't remember how she made them.
