Maple bun bars -- I found you!!!
February 5, 2011
I grew up in Ohio in the 1950s and my Dad had a candy business -- he had vending machines all around the Central Ohio area. My Dad and I used to do taste tests on any new candy coming in -- and if we both liked what we were testing, he would always add those to his stock, because they sold well.
Our favorite candy "bars" were maple bun bars, but because at that time they were packaged in a square sized wrapper, he couldn't fit them into the candy machine slots.
And then I moved to Texas and nobody has any idea what maple bun bars are there -- and that was the first time I realized they were not on the shelves in MOST states that I visited or lived in.
I googled Maple Bun Bars today and was overjoyed, after not having one in over 40 years, to find out I can still get them -- I'm ordering them online TODAY and can hardly wait to bite into one of them again. I know Dad will be watching and wishing they were available in Heaven!
