I remember visiting my grandmother every saturday when I was a little kid and there was a general store right next to where my grandma lived, it was like walking into the past like the one on the waltons and they always had a big bowl of cup o gold right next to the cash register and I would be jumping up and down pointing at the bowl and if I behaved my mom would buy me one or two.
As I got older I started mowing my grandmas lawn and also the general stores lawn too, and when I got done the owner would come out with a 16 oz. glass bottle of coke and a few cup of golds as a thank you because he knew they were my favorites.
In time like all people the owner died and the store closed up and that was the only place I could find them until now thanks for carrying my all time favorite childhood candy "CUP O GOLD", it brings back some great time memories. ~ Joe from New York
About 1964, when I was eleven years old, I remember hearing a radio advertisement by Ringo of the Beatles; he was describing a typical day of the Fab Four; rehearsal at 10:00 AM, etc. He ended with telling us that when he took a break, he loved Cup o Gold candy. That got me curious, so I bought one, just to see what it was all about. If it was good enough for the Beatles, then maybe I need to experience it as well. Needless to say, I was in heaven! I absolutely loved Cup o Gold. I bought it every time I went to our local grocery store. I would gorge myself on that candy! Brings back memories of care free times, before bills, kids, responsibilities, etc took over our lives. ~Roy from California
