ISO Childhood candy - Help! [moved from Boston board]

teabean Aug 17, 2007 06:48 AM

I know I'm not imagining them because my sisters remember them, but we have no idea what they were/are called! We bought them way back when CVS still had candy bins (early 80s). They were a milky, slightly caramel candy, small and rectangular, with a cow on the rust colored wrapping. Does this ring a bell with anyone? Does anyone think I have any chance of finding them again? Thanks!!

    You can get them mail order from a company in Chicago that specializes in Polish food products....I can't remember the name of the company, but will look when I get home later and post it.

          Yummies only seems to carry the US made candies. These are called Krowki and are Polish. It looks like you can order them here:

        Could it possibly be these: http://polartcenter.com/Luxury_Cream_... ? I used to buy them many years ago at my then-favorite store--Candyland.

              I don't know the Boston area but it looks like you can order them online from that site. Wow, I haven't had them in many, many years but apparently I'm still thinking of them...

            Bulls-Eyes? (Although they're round)

            I do recall Goetze Candy having a cow on most wrappers.

              Sadly, no, it's none of the ones mentioned above. I think the closest in taste is Werther's, but it was chewier, like a Goetze Caramel Cream...

              Are you talking about Goetze Caramel Creams? Or Cow Tales?
