The people have spoken and the latest survey results are in. The Milkshake Bar is the was the most popular favorite candy bar (that’s the Good News..). But the Bad News is that it’s gone – like in Gone With The Wind. Yes folks – it’s NEVER coming back…We have absolutely NO idea if (or when…) any manufacturer will bring it back. But don’t shoot the messenger – we often try to chase down what our customers request. We are not always successful. So, keep sending in those emails or just walk into our retail store at 1096 Hertel Avenue, Buffalo, NY.
Losing a great tasting candy bar brand always breaks our hearts too. We all have our favorite candies.
Don’t despair! We have an extensive inventory of Retro Candy and “other hard-to-find” candy brands. We can’t be all things to all people – but we try. Some times you just have to move on – a situation similar to our Buffalo Bills. They may be our favorites, they may break our hearts, but we always look forward to the future. Hope springs eternal (we hope…)
On the other hand, Tom The Boss sometimes becomes Tom The Tester (of new recipes that is…) Lately, he has been on a tear to invent new creative chocolate confections. Last week, he stumbled upon (literally…) a great new product that we now call Bella Sweet Heats. Using Premium Merckens Chocolate (either milk or dark chocolate) plus more than a hint of cinnamon flavor – he produced what we now call Bella Sweet Heats. The lingering flavor of cinnamon makes it a very unique treat. Other hard candies may give you a blast of cinnamon flavor…Atomic Fire Balls, Hot Tamales or Hot & Fiery also offer a cinnamon flavor – but NONE of them build on a flavor foundation of Merckens Premium chocolate. Hey - maybe those Incas or Aztecs were going in the right direction but were seriously distracted (and eradicated…) by the invading Spaniards.
Think of it this way…somebody has to move ahead and innovate. Check out our new Bella Sweet Heats, the get back to us. Better yet – stop into our retail store and perform your own taste test! It’s never too late to add another Bad Habit!
