I recently saw your reply to someone inquiring about plaited mint candy. That candy was
sold by Hanscom's Candy Company in Philadelphia. As described in the post, it was a very
creamy white peppermint candy plaited and delicious. It is one of the recipes that I have
been trying to track down for years. The last time I saw where that candy was being sold
was about fifteen years ago in New Jersey.
Hanscom's also sold another candy that I have been looking for: Golden Rods.
Both Plaited Mint and Gold Rods were especially available in the summer when chocolates
were less available because chocolate didn't keep well during the hot summer months.
I will appreciate knowing anything you can provide and, if you can point me in the right
direction, I will do what I can to help you locate recipes from the past.
That post about the plaited candy was 10-30-2018
I've had no success finding anything about Hanscom's Candy in Philadelphia or about any of
their products except for one mention of the company in a former employee's obituary and a
very few brief mentions in old newspapers. Nothing at all about Golden Rods.
I'll post your request for reader input.
