Whatever Happened to Sponge Candy?

Does anyone else remember this candy? Honeycomb candy or sponge candy (in the US) used to be a Halloween staple in my bag every Holiday. I remember happily munching away on this weird crunchy burned honey tasting treat, it was wrapped in a white paper bag and totally unsanitary, rolling around in the bottom of the bag with the jelly beans. Probably why you can’t find it anymore. I’m sure if a parent found one in their kids bags today they would call the police. I found the recipe on an Aussie food site where it is still popular…it’s such an easy recipe I’m definitely going to make this nostalgic candy next year for my friends to enjoy (dipped in chocolate of course!)

What other “Retro” candy do you miss from your  Halloweens past?
