I had never heard of Pixy Stix. But I loved it as the prior name, Lik-M-Aid!

What about York Peppermint Patties? Yep, it's a Hershey product named for York, Pennsylvania, not York, England which happens to be known for its many chocolate confections.

No mention of Whitman's? Or Russell Stover? Well, that's just not nice...(and if you're wondering about my score...I don't care to discuss it, thank you...)

4/10 guessed on most of them. I ate the candy never looked on wrappings to see where it came from.

5 out of 10. A few of these never heard of. All but two I haven't had since a child. Never looked to see where they were made unless its apparent. Love See's candies now. Also mini Milky Way's and a few others.
Oh my! See’s Candies 🤗 My Dad used to get my Mom candies from there in Los Angeles (way back in the day) Lol

Cliff Emmich who played The
Candyman on Happy Days and
John Candy BOTH would have been good choices to play villains on either Batman or The Adventures of Superman.

I used to like candy much more than I do now, but I have retained a fondness for Mr. Goodbar and a few others. 😋
