I haven’t thought of these in years. I used to get them at the little league field with a Suicide (remember those? – a little bit of every fountain soda flavor all mixed into one cup). They were these little plastic fruit-shaped containers filled with fruit-flavored powder. The twist-tops were green and had a little loop on them so that you could make a necklace out of it.
I remember collecting all the different fruits and stringing them onto necklaces and even using them as bath/pool toys. The powder had a good fruity flavor like the fruit container it came in – grape, strawberry, cherry, orange, banana, and pineapple. I also remember you couldn’t put your mouth on it and pour it in your mouth or it would clog the opening.
My daughter got one of these (banana) over the weekend while at Bullwinkle’s (think Chuck E. Cheese only with Rocky and Bullwinkle – complete with animatronics) and I was shocked to see they still make them. (It cost us 50 tickets in case you were wondering.) I poked around online and found a few places you can get them:
- Bee Fun Fruits at GroovyCandies
- Smarties Powder Filled Fruits at Gail’s Candy Jar
- Candy Filled Fruit at Blair Candy
- Fruit Bowl Candy at Candy Warehouse
Anyone else remember these?
