my secret fighting dictionary is unbeatable
Oh! The picture brought back memories! I remember these from when I was younger, I think! I wonder when they started making them.Here's the website for them from Brach's. Generic brands also exist. They really are the exact same basic materials (corn syrup, gelatin as a binding agent, confectioner's glaze, and vanilla flavor, generally speaking), just shaped into little almost-cylindrical pumpkins instead of corn kernels.
Alas, the gelatin is a deal-breaker for me, but I bet there are vegetarian versions out there. I will check at my local co-op.
