Conflicted... – Had a family outing and visited my old haunts. Found out the property switched hands 6 years ago. (I discovered the orig. 20 years ago.) I love small pieces of candy, makes me feel as if I am eating more than I am. The gummy frogs were in presealed bags and tasted stale. I don't know if it was their supplier that gave them a bad stash? The chocolate covered stem cherries were a different formula than what I was use to. The hard candy's such as Matlow's lemon and mint flavored are still good. The Sweet Life is still a very charming and they sell some hard to find products such as Elderflower syrup. I will return more often now that I found them again, however, I will stay away from the gummies.
