  1. Try Economy Candy on Rivington Street--they sell lots of things like that in bulk, by the register.

    1. yes economy candy has them and so does russ and daughters. actually they are different.. you wouldnt notice until you do a side by side comparison. russ and daughters are heavier with chocolate, just a little bit more outrageous. but both are so good.

      1. you can find them from a web site www.economycandy.com.
        there almost as good as the one from old town brooklyn.

          Good luck.

          1. My Dad was a Brooklyn boy for many years. And I remember going to New York with him for visits to the family - and getting dark chocolate jelly grahams. Or as he called them "Jelly Grahams."

            They have gotten harder and harder to find - and as he was no longer going back to New York to visit, nor was I, I resorted to mail order.

            These LOOKED like the grahams of his childhood, but they were stale and not so tasty.


            They did send him a replacement batch, and those were good, but the first - no.

            These were far nicer than the ones of his childhood - but by then, we didn't care, we were just so glad that they were good. They look like the exact same ones we got from Fairway and shipped. Both were excellent.


            I did have the hubby buy me a bunch of the Ashers for the holidays - and they were awesome. Tasted like the ones we'd gotten at Fairway - but fresher.

            Happy shopping!

            1. Fairway has them in the area where they have nuts and stuff in clear plastic containers. They get them from Ashers in PA. You can order them from Ashers by the pound and save a couple of bucks.
              The only problem I have with ordering in bulk is that I eat too many of them.

                Good to know for sure that the Fairway ones are from Ashers. Yow they are good!

                Ashers had a deal before the holidays, buy $25 worth of candy and you got free shipping. So we got six or seven of the two packs, put them in the fridge and they are my special treat.

                  The dark chocolate on the Asher's Chocolate Jelly Grahams make them so good. Just like I remember from way back in the 50's.

              2. Since this old thread has been revived, I will add that the ones at Economy Candy are as good as ever. I just got some last week. YUM!

                1. I used to love those as a kid. They used to come packaged in the supermarkets but were discontinued years ago. Russ and Daughters has the "homemade" style of the jelly grahams.

                  1. I just saw them tonight at Fairway in Douglaston cause I was looking for the plain dark chocolate grahams.

                      Most Fairway stores sell them. Russ and Daughters too! Asher's will not sell them by mail order in the warmer months. They may still ship them to stores.
