Valentine's Candy-drugstore variety

I don't usually cruise the candy aisle but...I just bought a bag of ALL CHERRY Tootsie pops--score! Another dangerous once a year must-have: Cherry Juju Hearts. I think it's a texture thing. Unless I'm mistaken, it's the only candy of its kind and only available once a year.

What are your favorite "limited edition" or hard to find treats?

  1. LOVE the all-cherry Tootsie Pops, too! I also am a geek for Cinnamon Hearts and for Hershey's (I know, I know, but I'm from PA) chocolate-covered marshmallow hearts.

      That's funny, Brianne, I'm from PA too. Must be a Pennsylvania thing!

    2. Love the sweettarts heart shaped lollipop. Bought 4 bags after Valentine's Daylast year @75% off. Still have one left.

      1. This is the kind of candy I truly love. Red is my favorite candy flavor! Always have to have some cinnamon hearts, and I didn't know there were either cherry only Tootsie roll pops or Sweetarts lollipops.

          Yes, Buttertart... in searching for more red Tootsie pops, I happened to notice several varieties of SweetTarts Valentines candy (including ST gummies!) It took all my resolve not to buy any.

            Oh God-sour gummies. I am in serious trouble.

            FYI- the sweettarts lollipops can be found at Walgreens. They are tart and not sweet which is why I love them.

              Uh oh. I may have to check them out, just out of curiousity, of course! ;-)

          3. Last place I worked they put a big bowl of loose conversation hearts on the counter in the admin office, I would order online some dirty ones and mix them in the bowl with the others when nobody was looking. Great fun, nobody really complained and 90% ofthe employees were women, I'm retired now, miss joking around.

              That's hilarious, Mr. Bigshot! You sound like a fun guy to have around the office!

                Cute. Those were the days, eh? You could get fired for something like that now.
