Ribbon Candy Returns

Dear New Bay Times Weekly:

I've just read Bill Burton's 1998 article, "What Ever Happened to Ribbon Candy?" So, where can you get the old-fashion ribbon candy these days for Christmas? I am old enough to remember this Christmas favorite. Where can I buy some today? Who is the maker or distributor? Help me this Christmas to make it a Christmas Past. Thanks.

Editor's note: Browse on. Bill Burton's column on December, 17-23, 1998 provoked an outpouring of remembrances and candy, accounting for a second column on Jan 1-13, 1999. In Annapolis, find old-fashioned ribbon candy at the Pennsylvania Dutch Farmers' Market in Harbour Center. The nine-ounce box carried at Mary's Candies is made by Sevignys in Brockton, Mass., and has been since 1928.

Call for Holiday Stories

The holidays are not only time to get together and begin new stories but also to grow closer by reminiscing. When fit together like puzzle pieces, our shared stories reveal who we are.

This holiday season, New Bay Times will be sharing favorite holiday stories. We'd like your story to be among them.

Write a simple narrative of a holiday experience or tradition you treasure. Tell us who and where and when and how and even why. You don't need to dwell too much on what your feelings were; the plain facts of the best stories pack their own punch. Try to keep your story to 500 or 600 words.

Send a photo or two, too, because you know what they say about a picture.

By sharing your stories in New Bay Times, you'll touch other holiday hearts and help draw Chesapeake Country into community.

All stories will be read. Stories selected by our editorial board will be published Wednesday, December 22. (We're publishing a day early the last two weeks of the year.)

Send your stories and pictures to: Sandra Martin, Editor, NBT, P.O. Box 358, Deale, Md. * Fax 410/867-0307 * E-mail [email protected].

All photos will be returned.

Don't delay: Our files are filling up.

In the Saturn ad in this week's holiday supplement, Local Bounty, the statement "Will meet or beat anything in the affordable mid-sized category," was incorrectly attributed. It appeared in The Washington Post.
