I'm all about Reese's Pieces. As far as I'm concerned it's the only candy.
Wouldn't be Nips, would it? Sounds very similar to what you're describing.My all time favorite candy is one I can't get anymore. I have been looking for a candy that I ate a lot of when I was a child, but it seems like no one else remembers it and to this day I haven't been able to find any evidence that it ever existed. But, I swear I'm not making this up, I clearly remember eating these.
I don't remember the name, I just remember it was caramel on the outside with some chocolate filler on the inside. It was small, round, and each piece came pre-wrapped. I recall the foil/plastic being a muted purple/redish brown color? and I'm 99% sure it had the Hershey logo on it. I've searched for it high and low, and have never found it. I thought I had gone crazy and just imagined it, but my older brother remembers it too (and brought it up without me mentioning it so I know he wasn't influenced by me). I just really want to find proof this candy existed so I can stop wondering if my memory is worse than I thought.
(And no, it wasn't Werthers, I hated those as a kid)
