Does anyone remember Sixlets, those little round balls of chocolate with a sweet candy coating? I haven't been able to find them anywhere. Do they still make them? I remember as a kid going to the grocery store with my mom and she would let me pick out one kind of candy once in a while. I would always pick the sixlets. I remember them being so good, but I haven't been able to find them for years!

OH! I used to LOVE those! They are so good. They were sweeter than regular choclate I think. I loved popping them out of the plastic. They were the treat my mom used to get my sister and I at the mall. I see them around when I am (New England) every so often. I think I've seen them at CVS and Shaws supermarkets. If you are really realyl craving them I bet you can buy them off the internet.

Yes, they were the best! I miss them, lol. Thanks for the suggestion about the Internet! I found an awesome website carries them, and they carry a lot of other vintage candy as well. I ordered some. It's going to bring back many memories from when I was a kid! That's cool that they still sell them where you are! http://www.oldtimecandy.com is the website I found. It's pretty awesome!

Oh, I think my uncle used this website before! For xmas he got my mom and his other siblings gift boxes of candies from the 50's. It was really fun going through all that stuff, and I know my mom loved it.

I do remember those and they were good! But no I haven't found them anywhere eighter, although I haven't really been looking. You may be able to find them for sale on the internet somewhere-have you tried that option yet?

I know exactly what you're talking about. I loved those as a kid. To be honest I still lke them now. Last year I got them at WalMart by the Easter candy. They were in pastel colors. They have them at a local five and dime in town where I live year round too.

Oh cool! I will have to look at Walmart in their Easter section to see if they have them this year. Thanks for the tip! :) That's cool that they still sell them where you are. I wish they did here!

They still make them, I see em every now and then. They're not nearly as good as they used to be.

Oh yes! I used to love those as a kid. They were so good. I actually saw them somewhere a couple years ago but it's been a while.
