Substitute for Bonomo's

Okay, it's not an exact match, but pretty darn close. Someone suggested going to a website called hometownfavorites.com and checking out the candy called French Chew. I did and ordered vanilla and chocolate (they also have strawberry), as well as some Skybars (remember them?). They arrived last night and we tried a vanilla right out of the box. Put the rest in the fridge. The vanilla had exactly the right smell, flavor and texture - stretchy and chewy. Tried a chocolate after chilling it and smacking it against the side of the fridge. It broke into little pieces, just the way it's s'posed to, and was *almost* as good as the original.
So, until Tootsie Roll Industries rolls over and starts making Bonomo's again, there is at least a real close second available.
Jim - I also got a box of Quisp. Can't wait to see what all the fuss is about.
