Childhood memories

These candy raisins are just like the candy I remember as a child in the 50's. Now my grandchildren can enjoy from us the same thing our daughters did from their grandparents.
Thanks for bringing back great memories.

Purchased these for a friend. I'll tell you, I've never seen her get so excited as she did when she found out candy raisins existed again. Thanks for giving me a "raisin" to see her smile so big!

Love these Raisins.

I have been hooked on these candy raisins since I was 10 which was 1960 in grade school at St. Ritas in Milwaukee, Wis. I believe it was 60th and Linclon.
I am so very happy you brought them back. Broke my heart when I couldn't buy them.
Pure joy and happiness that you brought them back. I am now 65. Got my brothers hook on them yrs ago when they were kids. We are 10 and 11yrs apart.
Thanks again for the treasured, historical, iconic candy Raisin.

Missing my Favorite

Grew up in Milwaukkee and on Candy Raisins. Moved away in 75 to California, mom would send them to me all the time, then moved to Texas in 96, mom still sent them to me, but since she passed on a couple years ago, am really missing those delicious raisins, must order some soon.

A nice effort, but...

Taste is too much like Dots, very, very hard. There was on the original, a sweet honey component, that was awesome when you sucked on them. I wish I could have taste tested earlier versions! Sadly not the same.

A great replica

I agree that these new raisin tops are gummier, but replicate what the candy raisins were like if you got a really fresh batch. These seem to stay soft longer...yet not sure if that matters since they only last a few days in our house. Thanks for bringing back a childhood favorite! I could hardly tell the difference!

Excellent

On a recent trip to Wisconsin, a friend gave me a bag and I'm in love once again! A bit stickier than the original, but the taste is certainly there! I'll be ordering more soon!

Flavor is spot on!

Like the others have said, a little gummier than the original but a good facsimile. My sister bought them for me for Christmas, nice surprise. Glad I can get them again.

They're Back:)

My sister ordered these as a Christmas gift for all her family without letting us know they were back. What an awesome surprise! They are a family favorite. Whenever we would travel to West Allis from Florida we would bring back candy raisins for the family. They are delicious! Thank you for bringing them back.

Happy Days are here again!!!

We've been waiting, asking, begging for our candy raisins. Growing up in Milwaukee, candy raisins were a staple. Moving out to the west coast, there was nothing to take their place. Every time we went back home, we always stopped at Ambrosia to buy our favorite treat. When it closed, we collapsed. So you can imagine our glee to hear that these delightful treats have been resurrected. Thank you, thank you! XOXOXO

    WOW!

    These taste exactly like the original, although as others have said they are little gummier. I'm fine with that though because they are so fresh and soooooo good! I recently finished my first order and am now placing my second order. My siblings and nephews & nieces will be so surprised and excited when I pour them into a bowl at our family Christmas gathering! I can hear them now, "Oh, these are so good! Oh, give me more!" My parents always had these as a special treat for us. My parents have passed away, but now the tradition will go on! Thank you for bringing these back!

    Close to the Real Deal

    Finally! Raisin tops are here (the old candy raisins from Stark). They are a little too fresh, but the taste is spot-on!

    Yes, they are the taste you remember

    Unlike the prior attempt at re-creating these, the Raisin Tops appear to have the original recipe and thus taste just like I remember them. They are a bit smaller than the old candy raisins and the current consistency is a bit more gummy, but I think leaving the bag open for a day out to make them a bit less gummy and a bit more dry.

    just like I remember

    the consistency is a little mark got me but I think that has to do with the fact that they are so fresh when we get them. My mom would always send those 5 pounds every Easter when I lived in Texas. When they stop selling the original I boughta hundred pounds of it before they ran out. I'm so happy I don't have to do that again

    Grew up on Candy raisins!

    Candy raisins were "our" treat growing up....and now that we are all older with kids, We've talked and talked about these and tried the imposters and prayed these would come back!! When I got the news, I instantly ordered five pounds! They arrived as I was serving dinner to my family tonight, and I couldn't even wait...I opened the box and tried one, hoping it wasn't the fake imitations again....and it was NOT!!!! It was the same
    Flavor I remembered as a child! I cannot wait to get these to my parents and siblings! I will say, the taste is completely original...the texture is not. They are chewier, and smaller. If they could just fix the texture without sabotaging the taste, they would the exact thing! However, after years and years of wanting these back, the flavor is what counts!!! I'm so excited!!! Thank you!!

    Welcome back

    So glad you made Raisin Tops!! Overall, great job reproducing the original Candy Raisin (CR) flavor!! Would like you to tweak the consistency.It's a little more gummy than the CR. And they could be just slightly bigger.
