Disappointed in Economy Candy
Went there yesterday and got chocolate covered pretzels and some Kookaburra Licorice. The pretzels under the chocolate were a bit stale and soggy and the licorice had a funny kind of metallic taste to it and didn't look like what I'm used to getting from Jo-Mart chocolates or Russ & Daughters, the pieces seemed smaller and the ridges too perfectly formed.
However the other packaged candies like Jolly Ranchers and Skittles had good prices
Lucky for me that those I buy candy for are addicted to simple lumps and powders made of pure sugar. Pixie sticks, spree, necco wafers, etc. If you have a partner that likes such things, you'll make out well buying a pound or two of conversation hearts for Valentines Day, instead of spending money for a few ounces of fancy chocolate.
I've liked the jordan almonds I bought at Economy Candy.
I guess the message is stick to the stuff that will survive and ice age.
