Irish Potatoes in Boston
So, driving in to work this morning I realized I could really use some Irish Potatoes. I know it's a few days too late, and they're probably not anywhere, but does such a thing even exist in Boston? They're these things: http://www.ohryans.net/
No, to the best of my knowledge these have never been a "Boston thing." It seems like the sort of item that one would have found at the old Fannie Farmer shops, but I don't recall ever seeing anything like these.
See's Candies makes a quite different version, a larger "potato" made of walnut divinity and dusted in a mixture of cocoa and cinnamon, but they only offer them until Saint Patrick's Day. Either way it seems like you will need to mail-order.
