Who is Cherry Mash you might say? Cherry Mash is another of my love affairs...my friend.
The Cherry Mash candy bar is made by the Chase Candy Company, in St. Joseph, Missouri.
If you like cherries, nuts and chocolate, you my fellow blogger, will like the Cherry Mash. The Cherry Mash was created by Dr. George Washington Chase. He couldn't make a living on doctor's wages, as the story goes, so he decided to go into the candy business. I, for one, am glad he did.
They made other candy, but JW doesn't really care.
There is even a Cherry Mash song: http://www.cherrymash.com/about/song.mp3 written and sang by award winning Jim Salestrom. Oh how I hope you can and will listen to my new favorite song (maybe not favorite). I shall sing myself to sleep tonight by the tune of Have a Cherry Mash Day. I promise if you listen to it, you will never ever get it out of your head. (smirk)
This candy is a "mound of chopped roasted peanuts blended with chocolate coating over a smooth cherry fondant center" so tasty so memorable. (source:http://www.cherrymash.com/) I really couldn't have described it any better.
Somehow over the years, JW has noticed that her beloved Cherry Mash has shrunk in size...a bit. But I still love the old sweetie.
The Cherry Mash (I think) is only sold in Missouri, but I've been wrong before...just once.
Something terrible happened as I was taking the photos for this post, someone took a bite out of the prop. hmmm I wish you could taste this delicious candy. But it is only a photo.
So until next time...
I know I will.
