I remember fondly the Christmas holidays when I was a kid. We would visit our aunt and uncle in Berwyn, Illinois, and celebrate Christmas with them. What I loved was the bowl of hard filled Christmas candy they always had in their dining room. This week, my lovely wife asked if I could get this candy to put in our candy bowl.
I went to several grocery and department stores, but not one of them had an assortment of hard filled Christmas candy. Each store had literally aisles and aisles of chocolates, but none of the traditional hard candy that I so fondly remember.
Finally, I searched online and found a one-pound can of assorted hard-filled Christmas candy.
What happened? Why are the stores not selling these traditional hard candies?
