This may sound dumb but has anyone else heard of the Willy Wonka candies from the 80's called Punky's? ...
They were my favourite candy growing up and yet i can't find them anywhere?!

Try looking at Target Stores.....they have started a section of the candy isle that includes many of the old classics!  You will find many of them there.

I can't find the Big Mouth Gum Suckers anywhere....anyone remember those? I've tried a bunch of online candy sites with no luck. I'd love to suprise my sister for Christmas with a box.
