Reed's candy was produced in the United States for over 100 years. The Reed's Candy Company is an American producer of confectionery, which was started by William and Eugene Reed, of Chicago. The company was founded in 1881 for the production and sale of butterscotch candies. Later they expanded the candy line with the hard candy roll, which became their top selling product. Originally, the pieces were packaged eight to a roll, with a cellophane button-wrapper to protect freshness. By 1921, the firm had become the largest manufacturer of butterscotch candy in the United States.

close but no cigar ..... Review by Dave
Nostalgia has a funny way of making things in the past seem better than they really were. With that in mind, I'm saying the flavor is just off. Not bad off, but different off. There's not that underlying sharp, rather pungent taste that would creep in. But they look pretty much the same. I liked the clear plastic wrapper of old but the roll itself is right on. It's kinda like an original AC Cobra, or a kit Cobra. Both look great and perform well, but it just ain't the same. (Posted on 12/9/2018)
Reed's Rootbeer are Great Review by Milkshake
There is no better Root Beer out there. I love that the pieces are individually wrapped. You can keep these rolls in your car or in your pocket and there is no sticking like lifesavers. (Posted on 6/29/2016)
almost the sameReview by Randy
I ate Reeds Root Beer candies up until they were shut down by Wrigley. So I was extremely happy to see them return. After consuming a number of rolls I have come to the following conclusions & comments.

1. The shape of the candy and the interior wrapping material come from the Royal Crown Candy line that the company has also returned to production.

2. The color of the Root Beer is not as dark or as solid looking as the original candies.

3.The flavor is almost the same but resembles the flavor of a Barrel which the original candies did not. They are still very good but they still need some work.

If they had been wrapped and shaped as the original candies they might have been able to fool my brain into thinking they were the same? (Posted on 1/12/2016)
