This American candy first appeared in the 1880’s. Buckeyes are still a favorite! Named for its resemblance to the nut of Ohio’s buckeye tree that Native Americans thought looked like a “buck’s eye.” It’s the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter in a lunch time or snack sized portion! Comes in a 1.5 oz. bag with the history on the label.
