I want you to know I found it. Sears sold chocolate candies in the 70’s. The particular candy I was searching for was a chocolate covered orange flavored jel. My husbands said his grandmother bought these chocolate covered gummy worms there. I finally found them and more at "The Souths finest chocolate factory" in Knoxville TN. He said they taste just like the ones his grandmother bought him. They have all kinds of wonderful chocolate. Here is the address and link:
South’s Finest Chocolate Factory
1060 Worlds Fair Park Drive, Knoxville, TN 37916
Good luck, hope this helps you find what you were looking for!
I vote for Priester’s Pecans!!!
Wow, that was fast! Thanks, you guys.
The ones that Jonathan linked to are the ones!
I will have to order some ASAP. I have looked for these for years on other forums to no avail. I guess they are an old school candy that was kind of forgotten.
I will have some please!!!![;)]
John, I think you’re on the right track with Divinity. I found the following through a websearch; it’s called "classic Southern Divinity," and as you can see from the photo, it looks almost exactly as you described:
And you can order them from that page! [:o)] So hope this helps.
When I was a kid in the 70s, my dad used to buy bags of candy at the candy counter at either Montgomery Wards – or it may have been Sears. I really miss those candy and nut counters.
Anyway, I have yet to figure out what this candy was called and if they are still made.
I will describe: They were white, spheres about the diameter of a half dollar with a delicate light coating of crispy crystallized sugar and the inside was a white cream about the consistency of fudge with a light vanilla flavor and in the center was if I recall correctly a pecan in the middle. They were SO good. I could even try to make them from scratch if I even knew what they were called. Perhaps it was a divinity.
If anyone recalls what these were called, and if they are still made, I would be really grateful.
Description of a Candy – can you help?
