Where to buy Chuckles candy? Maybe you haven't seen them lately at your local stores, but they are still being manufactured and distributed even if they aren't as easy to find as they once were.

These lovely jelly candies are truly nostalgic treats. First introduced in 1921 by the Chuckles Company, this candy has been around for quite a while. The company was bought by Nabisco in 1970, and changed ownership until it was sold to Farley’s and Sather’s Candy Company in 2002 who are the present owners.

These typical jelly candies are quite nice and have intense favors unlike many jelly candies. However, much of their attraction comes from their form and packaging, which is the same today as it was in the 1970's. Each package of Chuckles contains five nice-sized candies, each a different color and flavor that sit side by side on a cardboard sheet. They are comprised mostly of corn syrup and sugar with artificial, and some natural, colors and flavors.

Each Chuckle is a brightly colored, firm jelly sprinkled lightly with sugar. These candies have just the perfect amount of stickiness so that they adhere to the teeth for a long time. Of course, this is for added enjoyment.

The jellies come in five classic flavors: orange, cherry, lemon, lime and licorice. The cherry Chuckle has a strong burst of artificial cherry favoring that is somewhat reminiscent of a well-known candy cough drop. The orange is very sweet with just a small bite of citrus, and has a very intense orange favor. The lemon chuckle’s flavor is lighter, and also sweet with no hint of sour. The lime is sweet with a very artificial taste that can take one right back to memories of childhood. Most lime candies of the era had a similar flavoring. The licorice has a pleasant taste that teases the tongue but doesn’t overpower like a rope licorice sometimes can.

So if you are asking where to buy Chuckles candy, it just might be because it would be very satisfying to rediscover the sensation and flavor of this longtime favorite. It's true that adults often miss the candies that bring back nostalgic memories of childhood. Then again, sometimes wondering where to buy chuckles, or some other favorite candy, is directly related to wanting to share the memory, and the very specific taste, with a child or other loved one.
