My Grandma Workman used to send this to us every Christmas, and I remember one year she wasn't able to and my Dad felt like it wasn't even Christmas. In the early days of Southern Utah, that was just about their only treat...corn bread and molasses. This candy tastes like molasses in hard candy form and that's basically what it is. However, I prefer not to wrap it in foil like my Grandma did. It always stuck and we used to have to tear it off in pieces. Try waxed paper?! It is really good, and brings back such memories.
