"Sugus" candy?

gonzable | Jul 18, 2006 04:45 AM

Dear all -

I miss Sugus candy!! My parents would get us big unmarked bags of Sugus candy from Chinatowns when I was growing up. They're the little colored squares that look a lot like, but were way better than, Starburst. The other day I had a dream about Sugus, and woke up disappointed, missing that yummy chewy fruity chewy chew. Does anyone know of any Bay Area stores (often ones serving immigrant populations - e.g. Sugus is super popular in Asia, South America, etc.) that carry packs of Sugus? Also, sadly, I've become allergic to corn syrup, so if anyone is at this moment consuming Sugus, I'd love to know if their ingredient list has only sugar, and no glucose or corn syrup...

And hey, if you have any Sugus love stories, please post them!

MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE for fostering a nostalgic candy trip -
