ISO Brach's Neapolitan Coconut Candies

JudyHP Dec 31, 2012 09:21 AM

Looking to find these Brach's tri-colored coconut 'caramels'. I have searched the web and found out they are discontinued. Does anybody know where there might still be a "pick-a-mix" that has some left in it? Thanks in advance for your help. I've already tried the on-line candy places with no luck. These are for my 90-year old dad as a surprise (if I can find them).

    Haven't seen those in ages, but amazon has coconut slices wih 3 colors which look like the same candy but shaped liked a bar.

      They have it at that candy store in Copley, on Boylston, "Sugar Heaven". I had some, but they were horribly stale, almost broke the ol' dentures.

        Did you contact Yummies in Maine? They have a huge selection. I don't know if they ship or if you wouldn't mind a trip to the outlets at Kittery.

        Good Luck!

          Vermont Country Store used to sell the larger slice type, but I checked and they no longer do. I think Yummies might be your best shot.

            Thanks so far everybody! I did try Yummies and struck out. I might pop over to Sugar Heaven and see about the stale ones. If anybody has a sighting in the meantime, please let me know!

            The Penny Candy Store in Sharon... They are listed for order on the website in both small and large quantities. Searched for "Neapolitan" to find them. Call to see if they have them in stock.

              Thanks Foodie! They have them in stock! Thanks to all of you for your helpful replies. After I get them I'll let you know if they are stale ;-)

              Did you purchase the Neapolitan from The Penny Candy Store in Sharon? If so, how were they?

                The Somerville Market Basket has a pick-a-mix candy station. I'd bet they still have those candies.

                (oops--didn't realize this was an old thread! Well, for anyone else seeking discontinued candy....)
