Humbug Candy?

Hi there,

I am (desperately) looking for humbug hard candy.
I use to be able to fin it, but the company who used to make them closed (Stilwells).

Any idea where I can find them?

Many thanks!!

      They're delicious! I had bought some awhile back at Le Panier in Pointe Claire village and according to the following link, you may find it at several locations in the Montreal area. Best to call ahead to ensure they still carry them.

        The family that ran Stilwells still makes them in small batches and you can find them at Le Panier in the Pointe Claire village, as Yamiam stated. You can also find what I think are British humbugs at Bramble House. A few Christmases ago I bought a big tall container of them for what I remember as being a rediculously low price (can't remember the amount but I'm a cheapskate so the fact that I remember them as a real deal has stuck with me).

    2. Westmount Stationary sells Humbugs every holiday season try calling them

      1. Thank you so much, guys!
        I called Westmount Stationary and they just got a shipment in today (it's closer to me than Pointe-Claire).
