Hobokenpix: Do you like Zotz Candies?
[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]
Hoboken Photo of the Day – 5/27/2009
I can’t recall the last time I had Zotz Fizzing “Power Candies” before I became hooked again, but now that I’ve discovered that The Candy Shoppe (59 4th Street) sold them I’m in trouble! The best hard candy ever!
“The original Zotz Fizz Power Candies were introduced in 1968. Within one year they had quickly become the hottest selling kids candy in the business. What made Zotz unique was the flavored fizz center which kids found irresistible. Zotz is a high quality hard candy manufactured by G.B. Ambrosoli. G.B. Ambrosoli is wholly owned and operated by the Ambrosoli family, in Como Italy, since 1920.
Our new packages are designed to attract a whole new generation of Zotz customers. Our original Zotz customers now have children of their own, yet they remain loyal consumers. There are two different boxes of Zotz flavors; One box contains Lemon, Orange and Grape, the other has Cherry, Watermelon and Sour Apple. From 1968 to today Zotz continues to be the best selling fizz power candy in the United States.”
