    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'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.

    I too only remember seeing them alone around Halloween. Not sure when I'll be allowed to go shopping, but I'll check when I do.

    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!
