But the last few years - nothing! I knew they couldnt get their inventory guessed that accurately to all sell out - so I was assuming the workers were buying it up or something.. But perhaps they are selling it to another industry now for a set price, and don't bother with the constant mark downs and it taking up shelf space...

Perhaps it gets shipped off to another country for their holidayS - The mystery continues.. But I sure miss the cheap candy!

I think that was some of the problem. People would wait till after the holiday to get the candy for less instead of paying full price. The retailer learned it is better to sell what they can at full price which will be more if they cut out the mark downs latter which people wait on instead of paying full price. So just get rid of it even if it is for almost nothing and put in cattle feed.

Don't let the city people find out about this or it will become a whole new issue. " Drugging cattle with candy to increase food production" :bang:

Plant where it is made would probably be the only place with a large volume of it unless some commodity broker has some.

Some are now making a living buying up excess holiday inventories and clearance items and reselling them on amazon.
