Atomic Fireballs: My Madelines*


I used to get these for 5 cents each at the tiny arcade in Los Osos, with my bff Greta Guthrie. We'd play some Joust, then walk down to the shore and play in the foggy marshes.
Now I buy them by the bag from 7-11, another place that I used to play a lot of video games as a youth. Ferarra Pan, makers of Fireballs, Lemonheads, Grapeheads, Johnny Appletreats, and others has a pretty extensive website with details and histories of all their candy options. Want to see how Atomic Fireballs are made?
*Is it wrong to make a Proust reference if I haven't actually read any Proust?
