Chocolate turkeys

rochfood Nov 17, 2010 07:23 AM

When I was a kid..my well- to do aunt used to place a foil wrapped hollow chocolate turkey on each person's dinner plate pre meal as a Thanksgiving dinner favor. They had a colorful foil wrapping mimicing the bird's fall colored plumage.
They were tasty and I always looked forward to them. Her dinner was another matter.
My family never had them. Now I am an adult making my own meal for my family, I notice I never see such an item in the store. Granted I am not looking too hard at small local chocolate shops, but more Wegmans, Wal Mart, Aldi type regular supermarkets and drugstores.

Anyone see them ? Heard of them ? I did a quick google search and saw a few random items, nothing widespread.
Thanks in advance.

    Funny, I just saw these not an hour ago. But, unfortunately, it was at a small local chocolate store.

    Maybe if there's a Gertrude Hawke in your local mall?

      I believe I've seen some foil wrapped chocolate turkeys in my local See's candy.

        My local (independent) drug store has a big selection of them. Maybe try one of those - you know...the kind of place with the Hallmark cards, stuffed animals, typical drug store stuff, little gifts...
