Smoothies Candy History
Smoothies are creamy peanut butter cups coated with butterscotch (no chocolate) and made by the same company that makes Mallo Cups. Founded in 1936, Boyer Brothers specializes in producing candy bar items that come in cup form. [continued below]
[continued from above] One of their best selling is the Mallo Cup, milk chocolate coating containing coconut, with a whipped marshmallow cream center.
Another cup, Fluffernutter, is a combination of marshmallow and peanut butter covered with milk chocolate. Peanut Butter Cup has a peanut-butter center covered with milk chocolate. S'Mores combine graham cracker, marshmallow, and chocolate.
Other Boyer cup products are Bunch o' Nuts, Milk 'n Cookies, Smoothie and Minty Mallo. Smoothie has a center of peanut butter and is coated with butterscotch. Minty Mallo has mint-flavored marshmallow cream center covered with dark chocolate.
Today only Mallo Cups, Smoothies and Peanut Butter cups are still made by the Boyer Brothers company. Boyer is still redeeming the coupons. You can get a catalog and order form at their website.
Smoothie Candy Memories
Growing up in Upstate New York, my two brothers and I were allergic to chocolate. To compensate, Gramma Holland would buy Boyer Smoothies for us. I remember excitedly unwrapping the Smoothies and competing for the highest Smoothie points on the cardboard underneath the Smoothies. We would save up the points and after we had collected 100 points, Gramma would send in the points cards and we would get free Smoothies in the mail!
After moving to New Mexico in the early 1970s, we could not get Boyer Smoothies except when we would go back to New York and visit Gramma. Sometimes when she came to visit us in New Mexico, she would bring us some Boyer Smoothies. Boyer Smoothies bring back fond memories of my brothers and sisters and of Gramma Holland. ~ Cami from New Mexico
