Help bring back the "Ben Hur" novelty candy !!

349 Signatures Goal: 250

Many folks have been searching for a mint like candy that has since been discontinued. I know it from Pennsylvania, we called them sim-sims. These are not the licorice flavored mint shaped melts, nor are the the small flat breath mint in the foil package. These are unique. They were sold loose, in bulk lots.Sometimes they were still connected together. You could go into a penny candy store and get a pennies worth, or a nickels worth, whatever. They melted in your mouth and were about 1/2 inch square. They left your tongue a green/black color. There are numerous candy sites that have discussions about this elusive candy. Do a Google search for "Ben Hur Candy" and you may stumble upon one. If enough signatures are gathered, I will forward this info to the last known Company who owns the recipe. Perhaps we can convince them there is a market for these, and they will start producing them again.
