Christopher’s Big Cherry – Who has them or something close?

JeetJet | May 8, 2007 01:03 PM

Yesterday I stopped in a small mom & pop liquor store to buy a cold bottle of water (Hot day -- May 7?) and when I stepped up to the counter to pay I noticed something I have not seen for a while - a box of Big Cherry candy bars. I bought the whole box – $18 for 24 of them. I think this candy bar is still made in L.A. only, and has a history as far back as Big Hunk, Look and Aba Zaba, but it is hard to find. When you have a sweet-tooth just one Big Cherry will cure it Big-time. It is a mound of chocolate mixed with crushed peanuts and it has a very sweet pink center with a whole “cherry” inside – 1 3/4 oz.

Three questions, First, has anyone seen Big Cherry around town? Second, has anyone seen anything like a mound shaped chocolate peanut cluster with a cherry center being made at a small chocolate shop that makes hand-made chocolates? Finally, are there any other whole cherry centered chocolates out there?

Almost forgot, I found them in El Monte -- A liquor store at Peck Rd. and Lambert across from Jolly Jug.
