Candy Fruit Slices 2/9/21

“Boston Fruit Slices”

Last year for Valentine’s Day, my wife bought me FOUR POUNDS of Boston Fruit Slice candies. I sometimes buy them in the supermarket, but it’s maybe four ounces, and it’s a mix of flavors. I am reasonably sure that the supermarket chain simply buys them in bulk like this, assembles the smaller packages, and sells them at a pretty good markup.

It took us a while to work our way through all four pounds. Six weeks, maybe, and probably a little longer, because our daughter came home from college at the beginning of April and we weren’t quite done with them.

Since then, I occasionally get ads on Facebook from Nuts.com, which sells pretty much any kind of bulk candy you can think of. May have to do this again.
