I can't believe that there wouldn't be a way to make them a little more wholesome by boiling down real grape juice instead of using artificial flavoring and food dyes.
Then instead of $4/package, they'd be $12. :shrug:

You're right. These were mass produced God only knows where for the company in Naples. I'm not sure that enough people would care about the ingredients to pay more for homemade. But then who knows? When you're shopping at some trendy country store you might be more inclined to put out a little more money for something that is truly locally produced. I probably would have paid the same for a smaller package, but then I would have felt ripped off when I read the label. Now I just have a big bag of "who knows what" sitting on top of the fridge that I'll probably never touch again. Hey, they most likely have at least a 50 year shelf life! :lol:

Those grape ones are sold everywhere. I believe they are made by Kenny's Licorice, and repackaged by Arbor Hill.
Licorice twists as we know them are tough to manufacture- so I just assumed they weren't locally produced. There are apply flavor ones now circulating around the various farm markets for cider season.
I like them.
I buy mine at Sweet Expressions in Canandaigua.

Hey--bring them to the CR party on Saturday. If you share them with all the NYFallsers, we can be identified by others as the folks with the purple teeth and tongues!!! :D

Good idea! I suppose that there are worse ways that we could be identified. :lol: For instance, Matt could make us all wear Palin masks.

I know that it seems late. I think that it's a matter of them not NEEDING to be open earlier. 8) I thought that the sign out front read that they were opening on the 20th, but I see that the website indicates the 27th. Either way, I can't wait! We should meet there for lunch soon! I've never eaten there, but they have a nice outdoor seating area now.

will be taking a guest down there next week and all my office to Watkins and Skyland in July.
Did they do renovations or expansion last year?
