Thread: Where Can I Find This Candy

  1. #1

    Question Where Can I Find This Candy

    I am looking high and low for this Candy, it is my dad's favorite and want to get him some for an xmas gift, Cuban Lunch. From what I remember it has chocolate, peanuts, and something else as to ingredients. Haven't seen them in the stores since I was knee high to a grass hopper

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Hmmmm.... I have not seen a Cuban Lunch in about 20 years. I worked in a building that had a candy machine stocked with them.

    You could try phoning around to some of the bigger Vancouver candy stores. There is one on Fourth near Arbutus called the Candy Aisle (?)

    Happy hunting.

    I remember this candy too. It was made by Paulin's maybe try to locate the company.

    The Candy Aisle on west 4th avenue Van carries all kinds of retro and nostalgic candy, they would probably be your best bet.

    A Google search that took me to wikipedia shows Cuban Lunch as being "made in Winnipeg and distributed primarily in western Canada" by Paulin's. But when you click on the Paulin's link, it doesn't go anywhere. Presumably that means they don't have a website. It's got to be 20 years or more since I last saw a Cuban Lunch chocolate bar, however.

    I did see that, and I have a funny suspicon I know "who" is writing that. I can tell you that is untrue, and infact I am tested every three months and have the hard copy to prove it.

    So some more shit has been started about me, where is this fellow's proof? where are HIS test results? And why hasn't this person contact me, or have I been contacted by any officals? I find that quite odd, just on a public message board and the posts have since been deleted as well.

    All I can do is shake my head in this situation. That person for that matter, has not come forward to me, weather by email, phone, or PM. I highly doubt there is any truth to the matter

    I did some searching and couldn't find anything. Usually, you can at least find a nostalgia or retro candy store somewhere.

    Paulin's went out of business or got bought out a while back, I think.

    I didn't do an exhaustive search, but I've found that you can usually find it pretty quick - if it's still being made.

    I'm thinking the bars aren't made anymore. But I could be wrong.

    Thanks for all the replies. I will do some searching around town and see if I can find it. We shall see

    How about a grocery wholesaler. I box a box of these things thru a wholesaler although it's been few years (I can't recall exactly when). I likelt will be going there this week and I'll take a look. I know I'm in a different city but if it's here, it'll be where you are (hopefully!!).
