Green Candy Snakes for St. Patrick's Day?

  • c

When I was a kid (25 yrs. ago) growing up in the northwest 'burbs (Libertyville, Northbrook, Glenview) there was a candy store that sold green hard-candy snakes (with red hots for eyes, I think) that my grandmother would always buy us kids around St. Patrick's Day. The snakes were coiled and maybe 4" in diameter. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I would love to find them once again. Thanks.
