Back in October I reported that Ben Meyerson Candy Company, was been sold to Jelly Belly and they’d be movin’ the production of Sunkist Fruit Gems and Big Cherry off to Fairfield or Illinois.
Well, the Big Cherry got a big reprieve. The locally famous cherry-centered-candy-plop which still retained it’s original branding under “Christopher’s” was sold to LA-based Adams-Brooks. Adams-Brooks is known for their Coffee Rio, PNuttles and the Cup-o-Gold.
In further news, Adams-Brooks also bought Ben Meyerson’s other candy bar, Good News. I have no idea what the Good News bar is (and my email to Adams-Brooks went unanswered). Anyone remember this candy bar?
