Yummy chocolate covered carmels that are still sold today by Storck. Very tuff carmel though, until it is thoroughly worked over. I lost a few baby teeth eating these, and a few that didn't even feel loose beforehand. We actually started either freezing them to make them crunchy, to avoid the tooth pulling properties of the candy.

Didn't know these were being sold in the 80s, but I love them!

I don't think these go back to the 80's

It depends on where you're from. Riesen have been around since the 1930's and were covered in chocolate in the 1980's--but they wasn't distributed to all markets until the 1990's. I remember my mom having them in a candy jar occasionally when I was a kid in the '80's but at that time in our area they were only available at the "gourrmet" supermarket so they were a special occasion thing. Still one of my faves--I bought a bag this week!

These are hard to chew, but nevertheless, they're delicious.
