All The Buzz
A Yumster wrote to me the other day and asked if I ever cried over discontinued candy. She said her heart was broken that Peerless, the maker of rootbeer and cinnamon hard candies, shut down their operations. Indeed, this upset many candy aficianados. But then she mentioned their Honey Queen Bees and I perked right up. Honey Queen Bees? I've never heard of them! Turns out that Peerless used to make these fruit-flavored hard candies filled with real honey. They came in green apple, honey, lemon, orange, pineapple and strawberry. I can't believe I've never heard of these before! So tell me Yumsters, were they good? Did you have a favorite flavor?
