Does anybody remember these taffys? They were long and skinny and tart. They each had a different jungle animal on the wrapper and they were only a penny!

These sound like a candy I received one year when Trick or Treating (In Ohio, FYI). They were a long, skinny, taffy-like candy with a tart flavor. They were a bit like the fruit flavored Tootsie Rolls. They had a tall and very skinny cowboy on the wrapper and, I'm almost certain, were called Jim Slims (not to be confused with Slim Jims). I've never seen or heard about them since.

Could they have been called Jungle Jollies? There is a taffy that sounds similar that is still being sold with that name.

Jungle Jim's cotton candy goes back to 1976. In Cincinnati, a huge, safari-themed market, Jungle Jim's Foodieland/International Market is still around. Originally, just a produce market nestled in a mostly industrial part of town, expanded to the monstrosity it is today. A second location opened in Fairfield, Ohio. The only two in the country.
