The candy that zigs

No, wait. Every Zig was taken off for great flavor:

Brother Paul was particularly fond of Zagnut, mostly, I think, because he liked saying “Zagnut.”

Weirdly, both Zagnut and sibling Clark Bar are still in production, but today they have different owners.

    I see them occasionally at Cracker Barrel. I know I’ve eaten at least one of each in the last ten years.

    I hear ” Zagnut” in Beetlejuice’s voice, all movie dialogues and soundtracks IMPRINT themselves in my brain. It’s good company,
    as I essentially work alone, re-playing the greats in my mind.

    p.s. my name zigzag comes from a delightful movie character in The Thief and the Cobbler. Many juvenile movies or books are charming even for geezers like me. I would recommend, Slappy and the Stinkers, a sort of Our Gang. And Clueless, the book. Last recommendation of an overlooked release, Double Gadbad.
