What is a Twin Bing?

Only just about the greatest candy ever! We have a drugstore in town, conveniently located across the street from the knitting store in town, that carries some pretty lovely old-timey candy. The Twin Bing is probably my favorite of all of them (closely followed by the Cherry Mash, which is kinda like a single, big Twin Bing).

So what makes the Twin Bing so freaking good?

Perhaps its the fact that it’s made by the Pearson Candy Company in Sioux City, Iowa. Well, that’s part of it. But what really gets me is that it’s a NUTTY CHOCOLATEY CHERRY TREAT!

Isn’t the best looking thing right outta the packet, but it gets better. What you see here is a GREAT mix of peanuts and chocolate that surround two little nuggets of….

tasty cherry nougat. I know, it sounds weird, but it is awesome! It’s not too sweet, not too cherry, just a perfect mix of wonderful. And the best part is that once you’ve finished the first Bing, there’s always a second!!

    yum! Sounds like some chocolate-cherry bars that my grandmother used to make. Yet another reason to come and visit you 🙂

    This is my absolute favorite candy bar. However, I WISH they would sell it other places than just the midwest. I am originally from Nebraska but have lived in California since 1992 and they don’t have them here. When we drive back to Nebraska for visits, we pick up one of these candy bards in the first place we find that it is sold, which is usually somewhere in Wyoming. We have had cases shipped here but that gets expensive.

Tell me what you think!
