These sticky, chewy candies are positively addictive. They'll keep, covered in the refrigerator, for 1 week. They remind me of a candy I had, growing up in Canada, called 'eatmores' or something like that (a LONG time ago). If anyone remembers the name of this candy/confection, I'd love to know it. From the LCBO magazine.
