    That's a shame about the company going out of business. It sounds like an interesting combination of flavours!

    Peanut butter and molasses is a nice combination---a bit like adding a bit of honey to toast spread with peanut butter.

    The combination of flavors from Necco that WE'LL miss most are two:
    --Sky-Bar was a chocolate bar in four segments, each holding a different-flavor center: one chocolate cream, one vanilla cream, one caramel, and one peanut caramel;
    --Haviland Orange Mints, which came out during the holiday season: little dark-chocolate-covered mild peppermint wafers flavored with a hint of orange. Gosh, but we'll miss those this holiday season.

    Wow! Thanks for posting. I have seen the Pink Panther movies and cartoons. I loved the cartoon, it was right up there with Top Cat :) Iconic theme music wasn't it!!! My parents liked the movies a lot. I remember the comics too. Funny they haven't tried to reboot it yet.

    We still get the pink panther wafers.

    Wow I wish I could have tried those. What a great idea to have four flavours of chocolate in one bar! Can't say I've seen anything like that here! I've never had orange and mint together but it sounds like a christmassy combination indeed!

    We have Terry's Chocolate Orange which is quite big here around Christmas. I do really like the orange flavour in chocolate and I always associate it with Christmas.

    After Eights are also a seasonal favourite here too. Mint Chocolate thins. I am not all that keen on Mint flavoured chocolate but I would try those Orange Mint wafers you mentioned!!!

    The Pink Panther theme was by Henry Mancini. Yes, iconic! We have a collection of the cartoons on DVD that we enjoy.

    As for Top Cat---we enjoy those, too. Did you know it was a knockoff of Phil Silvers' Sergeant Bilko TV show of the 1950s? Those connected with the show deny it, BUT ... one evening we watched a Sergeant Bilko episode; the following night we watched a Top Cat cartoon, and the plot (and even some of the dialogue!) were almost identical! And the voice of Benny the Ball was an actor from the Bilko series. Arnold Stang, the voice of Top Cat, lived a couple towns over from us and went to the same dentist as we. Never ran into him in the waiting room, but we spoke with him on the phone once or twice about some of his more obscure films.

    We're big fans of Terry Chocolate Oranges! I always hand out a few as Christmas gifts (and always buy too many so we have a few for ourselves!). We have the After Eight mints over here, too.

    Sky Bar looked like this, cut open:

    (Oh, man, I'm getting chocolate cravings now ...)
