I had never heard of Pixy Stix. But I loved it as the prior name, Lik-M-Aid!
Those late-1950s, early-1960s were fantastic for kids in the best era in growing up.

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.

She appeared in one Leave It To Beaver 1961 episode "Mother's Helper" as the kitchen helper's daughter ("Margie Manners") that Wally flips for. Also known for many episodes as Chris Carmichael, Lucy's daughter in The Lucy Show (1962-68). Also in 10 episodes of "The Donna Reed Show" as Bebe or Bernice.

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
