Wolfgang Candy Co. stopped making Skipjacks two years ago.
But fans of the milk chocolate-covered oyster crackers, which went by the name of Cracker Crowns back in the day, haven’t forgotten them. They’ve been asking Wolfgang to bring them back.
So, starting today, Wolfgang is bringing Skipjacks back for a limited time. They’re on sale online and at the company store in Wolfgang’s North York headquarters. The seven-ounce packages retail for $6 each.
Wolfgang produced 1,000 packages and “when we sell the last package, we sell the last package,” Wolfgang CEO Ben McGlaughlin said.
Skipjacks’ return is part of Wolfgang’s plan to bring back three or four of its other popular “retired” candies a year for a limited run. The company is asking customers on its Facebook page to sound off on which candies they’d like to see make a comeback.
Maybe we’ll see other favorites like Raisin Clusters, Peanut Clusters and Pecan Turtles make a return run.
