Question Marks

There must be something about this time of year that makes people nostalgic. One of our readers, Valerie, is dreaming of a favorite candy bar that she used to LOVE as a child!

It was coconut, similar to a Mounds bar texture, but had a layer of cherry across the top. If you bit into it, the cherry did not leak out – it was soft but not liquid with a consistency of jelly/jello. The whole thing was then covered in a thin layer of chocolate. I used to buy 4 of them for a dollar as often as I possibly could.

I bought them in Alameda, California, possibly in a Safeway store on “Bay Farm Island” (Zip 94502) sometime between 1980-1985. They were individually-wrapped bars and packaged in shiny, brown foil wrappers with red writing. They were very flat, 6 inch long, candy bars and were not even half an inch tall.

I don’t know what it is, but it sounds delicious! Can anyone help her remember the name of this candy?

    Sounds similar, though not identical, to the Cherry Ripe still sold in Australia by Cadbury. That has a mixture of coconut and cherry chunks inside a thin layer of chocolate, and is flat and long.

    I was going to say Cabana Bars too! They were pretty popular in the 80′s!

    I think I’ve seen them sell those in the Vermont Country Store catalouge.
