I had this candy once. In my kindergarten class a kid brought in huge bags for everyone on valentines day. I dont remember what his dad did but he was able to get it for us special. I loved the candy. I have been looking to see if it was still made but I couldnt remember the name until seeing this.

I remember..... Yeah everyday after 2nd grade i would hit up the ice cream man and get 4 bags for a dollar. I hope to eat them again. It was too good not to be lost with the 80s. Cali in the house!!!

I remember riding my bike when I was 10 in 1988 to a Cumberland Farms store near my house in South Jersey on a cool fall afternoon. At the store I bought chalk candy in a small red bag w/a blk. board on the front. They had a sweet cherry flav. inside with a white chalky outside. I only found them that 1 day and never again :(

I totally remember that candy! My mom would let me get it at the general store in the mid 80s. I have always asked friends if they remember and they think I'm crazy! So happy to find others that share that memory of that great candy with me!

Everyone thinks I'm crazy too, but I LOVED those things. I wish they'd start making them again. They need to bring back the original Good n Fruity too!!

I once asked a friend, "Dare me to eat a piece of that chalk?" I confidently went to the classroom chalk tray, ate the pre-placed Chewy Chalk, and laughed inside as she watched in horror. Good times, good times...

The last time I had chewy chalk was in the late 80's. I've searched and searched all over the internet to no avail =( Why do companies discontinue good products? Like Johnny Apple Seed and Alexander the Grape.... stupid stupid

I can not believe that I have finally found other people that remember Chewy chalk!!! I loved it soooo much it was my favorite and every time I would ask someone if they too remembered it they always said no! How wierd. I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one who had ever eaten any of it! Wish they would make it again! It was great!!

At work now and craving chewy chalk.. did a search and sad they no longer make them. How do we petition the leaf company to get them back?

That's So very cool. My grandparents are dead, like a door nail but i wish they did the same. But I had them alone and they were good to the last drop. You are SO cool Michelle. Call me back, girl.

My Husband and I LOVE this candy! We used to buy it in the mid to late 80's! We have searched for this everywhere! There must be a candy company that can make this today. Too many people love it so please someone out there please bring it back!!

I LOVED Chewy Chalk! It was my favorite candy then, and still is, even though I haven't had it in over 20 years. I accidentally ate a piece of real chalk once, thinking it *could be* chewy chalk. I would pay a lot of money to eat it again. I even tried calling Leaf, Inc. to obtain the recipe from them after they discontinued the candy, but they refused to give it to me. I believe they are no longer in business because I went to,_INC./21359/ and called the number there ((708) 940-7500) and it was a non-working number.

I've been looking for this candy for awhile. I was in fourth grade and my teacher wrote on the chalkboard and popped it in his mouth. Some of the kids were selling it. It was the best candy ever.

I asked my sister if she remembered this candy and she thought I was nuts and was eating real chalk...I know I'm not crazy.

if you mix cherry twizzler bites and cherry sours, you almost get the same texture and flavor as chewy chalk!

This is the best candy ever! I used to rush to the ice cream truck to get these. Man, what I would give just to taste it again.

Never heard of these guys but it looks tasty. We could use you back, President Nixon. We all owe you an apology for what you got impeached for. Mrs. Clinton and her crocked husband should be in jail. And what you did is a parking ticket compared to her/their acts over the last 35 years! Nobody died because of Watergate. Hilary can't say the same about her criminal acts.

I use to but this candy from a vending machine when I was in elementary school. we were able to buy from the vending machine after lunch. I love this candy so much. I'm 38 and I still think about this candy. I've looked for it for many years only to find out the don't make them anymore. Does anyway know what company made them? We need to see if the can make them again. Maybe even for a limited time.
