Honestly, this king cake crack candy never lasts long. I purchased all the old boxes that were near me. I also would buy a few boxes of the jujyfruit but didn’t like it as well when you changed the green mint to lime. (Kind of like Chuckles which are also made by Farley’s & Sathers now.). THANK YOU.
