  • DeCarlo Rules: It's crazy that ACP hasn't reprinted those 2 issues as a double-size one-shot. Or the lead story in a TP collection of vampire stories (including "Twilite" and others).

  • irishmoxie: That's crazy about those Betty and Veronica issues being worth so much. They're only about 6 years old. I'm pretty sure I have copies of them.

  • DeCarlo Rules: On a relatated note, the real FIRST Vampironica appeared in Larry Welz' underground comic Cherry Poptart #1 [link]. That can be had right now, CGCed at 9.4, at the Buy-It-Now price of $280 on ebay. Although the book had several subsequent printings, only the first printing ($2 cover price) contains the Vampironica story. Much, much scarcer than B&V #261 & 262, but then far fewer people seem to be aware of its existence. It may not be the same Vampironica as the one that appears in her own comic book from ACP, but then you can easily make the argument that neither is the Vampironica from B&V 261-262.

  • DeCarlo Rules: Yes, I mentioned this a while back somewhere around the time Vampironica #1 was first solicted or shipped. I even mentioned it to Dan Parent and told him if he still had copies he should get them CGC'ed.
    November 03, 2018, 04:33:03 pm
  • rusty: Apparently Betty and Veronica #261 and 262 (1987 series) are popular now due to Vampironica.  Somebody actually purchased a copy of #261 for $299 on ebay recently.

What is your favourite candy/chocolate?
« on: April 26, 2016, 03:57:53 pm »
Mine are a candy that I loved back in South Africa that they don't seem to have here in America called Fizzers. They have 3 flavours(Strawberry, Bluebuzz(Mixed Fruit), and Cream Soda) and they also fizz in your mouth. They are also chewy.

In America I like these. Hershey Special Dark Chocolate Bar. They are not available in South Africa. The only Hershey's chocolate I have ever seen in my life in South Africa and it hasn't been many times were the Kisses, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and Regular Hershey Bar.

I also really love these. These can actually be found in South Africa, but not like here in America.

I love Haribo gummies! They are better than the rest. You can find them here in the States but usually only in specialty shops. Of course there's always amazon. I really like the soda flavored gummies by Haribo. It tastes a bit like Lemon Bitters.

Hmmm, chewy AND fizzy? They look to be about the same texture as Tootsie Rolls - which are usually chocolate flavored, but not actually made with chocolate, although I know they've produced other flavors. I guess you'd call Tootsie Rolls basically taffy-like, it's the fizzy that throws me, because while we've had various kinds of fizzy candy products, none of them have been the least bit Tootsie Roll-like.

Various brands of gummy bears are pretty common over here. There are a lot of commonly available gummy candies, like Gummi Worms or Swedish Fish. In fact it's so common that they make gummy vitamins - for adults!

there's a company called Theo in Seattle that makes great chocolate but there are a lot of good ones.  I'm vegan so I stick to dark chocolate and I especially love dark chocolate bars with quinoa or peanut butter mixed in.

Fizzers are like taffy but the fizz is actually quite weird. When you chew into the candy and bite a fizz area of the candy you will get a strong fizzy burst in your mouth. Other times you eat the candy you may miss those areas and won't get the fizzy sensation as much.

From your description, it sounds like they took a taffy-type candy and put Pop Rocks inside the taffy. Pop Rocks (which irishmoxie mentioned earlier) are just like the 'fizz areas' you describe, but it's just those, and they fizz and pop in your mouth. I don't know if they're easy to find in stores any more, but they used to be a lot more popular years ago. You can still buy them on Amazon. There are a lot of 'nostalgia candy' companies now that specialize in older candies that used to be popular, but you don't find commonly in stores any more, but they'll ship them to you by mail.

Yep, it is kinda of like that.
