Re: What is this type of Christmas candy called?

My family calls it "old fashioned Christmas candy".  I don't know the real name but it's hard to find now.  I didn't see it in the store I usually get it from, Amazon had it but it wouldn't have arrived until after Christmas.  No point in that.

Could not remember what they were called but just the photo sure brought back the memory of them!  I think I only liked the little round pinkish red ones.Woman Wink

Not going to sort thru all your replys but they are pillow candies.

They are pretty to look at, but taste terrible IMO.

We always just called them "hard candies" in our family.

Yes, Hard Candy, lol.

 

Mom bought big tins of those every year when I was a child. I absolutely loved them.

I remember liking some flavors and hating others. I also remember trying to pick up one piece anc they all stuck together.
