Corn Flake Candy – 1800s invention. Appalachian favorite! Made w/ original ingredients from 1930s West Virginia cookbook.

$7.47

Our Corn Flake candy is delicious, tastes like peanut butter fudge with a whimsical crunch. It’s made with the original ingredients that we found in a 1930s cookbook from West Virginia. The cooks were professionals in their own right – women at home. They used whatever was cost effective and readily available – especially during the Depression. Cereal and peanut butter were obvious choices: from these they made mouth-watering sweets that could hold their own against the most esteemed choices. Peanut butter was an inexpensive and delicious choice for sweets in the Depression-era and can be found in the perennial favorite Peanut Butter Fudge, as well as the Appalachian treat Potato Candy. America’s best known Peanut Butter Cup was introduced the decade before by Henry Reese, although ours were likely made before Reese’s – and you can taste the difference. Approximately 4.5 ounces. Portable.
