Ghirardelli packaged these large chocolate drops in a tube roughly the size of a TP-roll. They stopped making these in the late 80s?? Had a pleasant taste not found in any other chocolate.

i remember eating these at the theaters! hence the name "flicks", i believe. i think the wrapping on the tube was a green foil. they were interesting, a different chocolate taste for sure, not the usual hershey's flavor. i keep looking for them when i go to the movies, but alas, no luck.

I remember the commercials for these, Bob(Gillian) Denver dressed as Gilligan would be lying in a hammock flicking them into his mouth. They were milk chocolate as only ghirradelli could make and came in a foil wrapped cardboard tube a bit smaller that a T.P. tube the foil wrapper was in different colors and the candies were shaped like flattened Hershey kisses

These things were great because they had a subtle flavor. But some people hated them for just that reason, and preferred a stronger-flavored chocolate like Hershey's Kisses.

I was telling my husband about these a couple days ago. I remember going to the movies with my Grandpa and he would always buy these for me. YUMMY!

I really can't say I remember them, but looks like they are still making them :

These used to come in a cardboard roll with different colored wrappers (blue, red, green, gold?)and when I was growing up in Seattle, a local kids TV show host, JP Patches, plugged them on his show. They later disappeared - but I hired JP to appear at our high school reunion last summer, and he came with a carton of them and passed them out. He said they'd come back on the market. The picture of the one he gave me is above. They're now made by Tjerrild which according to the wrapper is pronounced "chair-old".

They sell Flicks candies at the Ghiradelli store in San Francisco in Ghiradelli Square. They come in red, green and blue tubes still but don't seem to taste as good as they did back in the 1970's when we got them at the drive-in theatre.
