Now I must go on record to indicate not being a "candyfile" by any stretch of anyone's imagination !
I tend to believe however that in most of us, along with racial memory, some primal pleasure references from childhood exist and reoccur randomly in adulthood.
Mine is GOLITZ (brand) CHICKEN CORN that arrived in a large blue and yellow box with a cellophane window that was marketed in most of the major supermarkets in NYC.
It was manufactured by the GOLITZ Candy Co. in Chicago
No current candy corn even approaches its purity of flavor, so i'm not seeking alternitives.
I dont even know if it still exists, but if it does and you know where it can be purchased in the downstate area, your advice will be most appreciated.
