Candy A to Z: Y is for Yum Yum Marshmallow Cones at AllCityCandy.com

If you've followed our blog for a while, you know that we really get a kick out of candy that looks like other stuff. For example, there are candies that look like other foods, such as our gummy hamburgers and hot dogs.

Candy A to Z: MoonPie

On one hand, it's astounding for any product to weather a century of ups, downs, and changing tastes. On the other, a MoonPie is basically a pre-made, individually wrapped s'more.
