My roommate and I are eating Mary Jane candy. She just remembered a candy that she ate when she was younger. She does not remember the name. When she went to the store, as a child, she simply pointed to the candy that she wanted. It was pink, in a gold wrapper. The texture was chalky. She also said the it was wrapped like the Tootsie Roll. She said, it was a deep pink, almost red in color. She has me trying to find it online. It is like looking for a needle in a haystack without the name. Can someone please help me, before she drives me wacky!!!

I don't remember that particular candy. I used to love penny candy. I was born in the 60's and it was still around for awhile. We had a corner store down the street. We would get ahold of a dollar, go down to the store and come out of there with a big bag of candy. Sweet memories. Where I live there is a vintage candy store, wih some of the old penny candy. Sadly its no longer a penny. Was the candy a peppermint candy? Thats the only thing I can think of that sounds like that.

Thanks for BR Rosie. I found a Penny Candy store online, here is the link to it: thepennycandystore.com/index.html They have everything or just about. Its no longer a penny, it was fun to look around and remember some of the goodies from long ago. Take care.

I think it's familiar to me. it's actually very cheap before. I born in 1980's but I can see it in the small manufacturer near in our house. It's really chewy , right?
