Tiger bites was not only my favorite candy but like so many other products from that era, it brings back special memories from my child hood..That I would love to pass on to my grand kids..My father had to travel aloft when we I was a kid, when he returned home he always brought us a pack of Tiger bites..A great memory and there are so many others..I still love fruit strip gum but it’s not the same..Please feel free to contact if you come by any, I would love to purchase some
It’s fun to see that I’m not the only one who has a special nostalgia for this particular candy. Long before that, Sweetarts were a fave. I remember as a wee one, there was a giant sweetart that was a fun treat I could gnaw on as my teeth slowly dissolved.
There was a Howard Johnsons (hotel?) in Wheeling, and I would buy Sourbites from the counter of the cafe (or gift shop?). I can remember the foil/paper pouch and the bright shiny letters. Tearing in, there were neat rows of candy tablets with little animal line drawings etched into the flat part. I remember the tart, artificial flavors, not pretending to be fruit, just having it’s own kind of surreal candy tanginess. If I tried them today, I might be disappointed, but for now they must only live on in memory.
There was an herbal tea I liked that was discontinued, they eventually re-released it, and it wasn’t how I remembered it. Might have been identical, but that’s how memory works, I guess.
My new jam is Katje’s Rainbow Gummy Candy (sold at some Walgreens). If you like a chewy candy, this gives you that sourbites artificial thing, kind of.
