Name That Candy

Have you ever completely drawn a blank trying to remember the name of a wonderful candy from the past? Well, you aren’t alone! We received this email from Rebecca G. who is seeking a cherished favorite candy. We’re posting the question to all of our readers for an answer! Can you help a fellow candy addict by reuniting her with her favorite candy?

Recently I got to thinking about this old candy my 4th grade teacher used to give us, and it was a type of lollipop. They came in various different flavors, and they were wedge shaped. Each lollipop consisted of two colors and was a watermelon-esque wedge shape. I’m positive the name had either “wedges” or “wedgies” in it — surprisingly, nothing relevant came up after googling using those terms.

I lived near Cleveland, OH, and had these lollipops in 1998/1999. She bought them in a plastic tub, maybe a bit smaller than a coffee can. They were individually wrapped in a clear plastic. If you know what kind of candy this is, is it still being produced? I remember these being the most delicious lollipops I ever had, and would love to try them again.

Let’s harness the power of the people and figure this one out. If you have any additional information or know what the candy is, post your comments and let us know what the mystery candy could be!

    Astropops? Though, they’re more of a cone than a wedge.

    I know I used to get these at the corner store for 10-15 cents. And they come in other flavors too
