My brother gave me a call this afternoon to say he had read my blog about Flicks. He asked me what it was that reminded me of them. I again asserted that I wasn't sure what had brought back the memory, at which point he pointedly reminded me the HE had called me and told me about a display of them he had seen in store just the other day!! (Insert "getting old" jokes here). Anyway - with his reminding me of these, I did have these great memories of Flicks.
I do know that I remember that there was nothing better than getting some Flicks and slowly eating the large chocolate chip shaped candy. The shiny foil covered tubes were super cool looking and fit easily in your hand.
I've done some searching and found some places I can buy them. Sounds like I'm planning ahead for stocking-stuffers for next Christmas!
