Q. Tell me where I can find "The Original Bituminous Candy" made by the Dairy Made Confectionery Co. It contained a box of licorice and even included it's own little pewter hammer to break off bite size pieces of "coal." I used to buy it around Christmas time probably 20 or 25 years ago. I would really appreciate knowing if it is still made and where it can be purchases.

A. At our request, Hometown Favorites now sells the candy online, complete with the hammer. Click on "Enter our Store" and type "coal" into the search box to find it.
