You might assume Sixlets will taste like other popular candy-coated chocolates you have eaten, but they actually have a very unique flavor that distinguishes them from the rest. The center is made from a cocoa and carob mixture, which gives them a malted flavor.
If you have eaten Sixlets in the past then you know just how scrumptious these treats are. You also know that they are not all that easy to find in stores these days, which is probably why they are in such high demand here at CandyDirect.com. If you are wondering if these are the same candies you ate as a kid, they are!
They were released back in the 1960s by Hershey Foods Corp. Sweet Works, a supreme confectioner in Toronto, Ontario, makes them now. These individually wrapped packages of Sixlets are perfect to hand out at kids' parties. Their colorful display also brings a lot of personality to an ordinary candy dish. Just open the packages and pour them out.
You can even pick out specific colors to include in the dish based on the holiday or event. Red for Valentine's Day, green for St. Patrick's Day, orange is for Halloween, yellow is ideal for baby showers, and red and green are perfect for Christmas. What are you going to do with the brown ones? Looks like you'll need to save them for your secret candy stash!
