Mr. Candy's lament  
Nobody carries Runts anymore.

This was a very odd realization, and quite a sudden thing.  Last month, they could be found pretty much anywhere they were desired.

This month, I've looked at Ralph's, Von's, Albertson's, Stater Bros, and Target.  Not a Runt to be had anywhere.

Not that I'm in desperate need for some more candy.  I am, after all, big and fat.  But I do find it strange that nobody carries Runts anymore.

I weep for your tackle box.
(Happy anniversary to your tackle box, as well)

You could buy it on-line at http://www.groovycandies.com/V2ProdDetail1.asp?Product_ID=608&utm_source=google&utm_medium=ppc&utm_term=Runts&utm_campaign=emg00803 . It's $12.95 for 1600 pieces. That's a bargain if you take into account that someone had to count each one. I figure is $2.95 for the candy and $10.00 for the labor.

Same site, different item.

It's sort of a gamble, but if this is the same manufacturer, that'd be a much better balance of flavors than the normal Runts assortment!
