Candy Question

I believe this candy is local to Indiana, but I'm entirely unsure of what it's called. It's shaped like a chocolate peanut butter cup, but instead of being filled with peanut butter - it's filled with marshmallow.

And is this basically an Indiana candy, or can it be gotten outside of Indiana?

    I grew up in Indiana, and most of my family still lives there. I think this is what you're looking for. My mom has a thing for these, and they disappeared from the market for a while, but now Cracker Barrel restaurants sell them, among other places.

      Damn, I know what you mean. 've had them before (in England), but they're not made by any of the main chocolate makers. Ruffles comes to mind. brb.

      No, I don't think that was it. I definitely remember some bar but it was pretty low quality compared to English chocolate in general

        I think it is Mallo-cups that you are talking about.

          Yes, those were my favorites when I was growing up. We had them in PA, too. I've seen something similar here in CA, but have never tried them. They're called Cups-o-Gold.

            They are Mallo Cups. My mom was raised in Ft Wayne and that is 1 of the few candies that she really likes. They tend to be impossible to find in mass market stores, but I found a vintage candy store in Cleveland that seems to sell them by the case.
