  1. Brach’s still makes great candy! I get mine from! Great prices too! Big selection! And other retro candy is available too!

  2. Brach’s is WONDERFUL. I still buy the marshmallow and coconut eggs but have had trouble finding some of the varieties this year. I also love the jelly beans and still buy those but have noticed the bags are only half full. Sign of the times.

    Off subject but I wish Brach’s still had the “Pick A Mix” offering in stores.
