When ya'll are out and about at Walmart and your local grocery store can you look to see if they have Bit o' Honey candy?? You don't need to send me any, although I have been dying to have some (found a mixed bag of candy today) but none of our stores have it including the gas stations. It's weird! But it still shows up as a product on Nestle's web site (I think it was Nestle).

I'm wondering what's up??? Is it the honey bee epidemic that is stopping production? But if so why is there still jarred honey on the shelf?

TIA! And I told you it was stupid! :rotfl2:

I will gladdly check when I go out tomorrow. If no one finds it I had a student who dad works for Nestle, I can call them and ask them.

I'll check my store, but I'm not sure I've ever seen Bit o' Honey around here? Maybe just cause I never looked for it though.

noooooo!!! Silly Maria! I have been craving bit o' honeys for about a month now. And no I am NOT preggers. Remember that ship has sailed!! LOL I get on these food kicks, last week it was beef jerky. I have to consume enough to feed an Army then I don't want it anymore.


Anyway, I have looked at the gas stations, Stop and Shop, and 4 Walmarts. Nothing, not even a back tag!!!!
They used to come in a bar and then most recently a bag but no one has them. And I just looked it up again and it is a Nestle product.

Hi!

If you just have to have your Bit-O-Honey, and if you are willing to purchase it online, try:

Old Time Candy
www dot oldtimecandy dot com/bit-o-honey dot htm

Groovy Candies
www dot groovycandies dot com

In product search box, enter bit-o-honey. Be sure to use the dashes.

Or, if you do not like these stores, there are others. Do a Google search for Bit-O-Honey.

I did google it, thanks. If all else fails I'll order it online. I was just wondering if it was a regional thing or everywhere. I found it strange that they just vanished without notice. B-O-H has been around forever.

My mom & I had breakfast at Cracker Barrel Sunday morning, and would you believe, they had Bit O Honey for 59 cents a bar. I'm trying to come up with an inexpensive birthday present for a baby boomer so I noticed them. Let me know if you want me to send you some...

Thanks but I have a feeling they would melt in the mail.
We have a Cracker Barrel about an 1 1/2 hours from us. Now I just need to convince DH to get some biscuits and gravy!

You know what Buffy, I think the Michaels here had a display of Circus candy or Old Fashioned candy???? Try that, I bet they might just have some!!! You never know!!!!

I looked at Michael's and they didn't have any.
I have a Walgreen's and a CVS, in the same town no less. I think I will look there tomorrow. Of course I was in said town today but didn't even think to look! Thanks!!!!

Our Walmart only had them in a grab selection bag mixed with a bunch of yucky candy. No Bit-O-Honey alone. :sad:

Walmart here used to carry them that way but they revamped the aisle and now there is nothing good.

LOL I'm going to end up with like 50 lbs of bit - o - honey aren't I???

:rotfl2: :rotfl2:

I am just wondering if it's just my area or not. I hope to hit CVS tomorrow.

They are all over here in Texas, but the South has the best candy anyway :). I bring candy care packages to my SIL in North Carolina all the time. She loves the peanut patties and Big Hunk bars. Yummmmmmy. Now I want some candy. I would send you some too if you want it.
