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

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!!

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

    1. 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...

      2. 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...

                Thanks, I'll see where i might be able to order them online. yummies didn't seem to have it. Looks like you'll be ordering some too, huh? ;) Thanks again!!

          2. You can probably find them at www.yummies.com, they have all the old stuff

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

            1. 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.
