All By Myself

Check this out: when we were in Maine, I spied this lonely Hershey bar sitting on the patio of a coffee shop. Who would leave their candy bar?! Why was it left here in the hot sun, all alone? It's a mystery.
Speaking of mysteries, two readers have come to me with questions:
1) Are there any mints that list peppermint oil as the first ingredient? (Altoids used to, but they've changed the formula)
2) Are there any Halloween candies made in the U.S.?
I'll be investigating these questions, but feel free to chime in!

I don't understand the question "are there any Halloween candies made in the US?"

They're pretty easy to find. All Mars products are (Skittles, Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Starburst, M&Ms).
Necco, Tootsie, Red Vines, Ferrara Pan, Goetze's, DumDum pops & Annabelle's

Stuff to read the labels on:
- Wrigley stuff like Lifesavers.
- Hershey's Miniatures & York Peppermint Patties
- Atomic Fireballs
- Some Wonka

The mysterious lonely candy bar... How strange.

Marshmallow peeps are made in the US. (They have little three packs of ghosts and pumpkins.)
