"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

First memory of this candy is it's being part of a December, 1960, Care Package to Maureen at the College of New Rochelle. This quickly became popular with friends, family, and service workers, volunteers, all of whom often receive a box at Christmas.
