    When I was in high school 69-72, we used to make fudge. It was wonderful. Made it every year at Christmas, then one year about 6 years ago it failed, tried making it again, thinking I did something wrong, and it failed again. It was horrid and grainy. Spoke to other family members and they had the same thing happen. I was ready to pitch the recipe and my husband started reading weights and started playing with the recipe wrote it out and it has been fine since. But I also think there have been some ingredients had changes in them more than weight.

    Now I would say "approximately four ounces of a milk chocolate Hershey bar"

    The weights and volume are changing on just about everything.
    I remember buying and eating many 5 cent Hershey bars! That must be a very old recipe. Tasty too I bet.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Well it looks like we will have to start buying local more and pre packaged less. I haven't used margrine in years after I read how many chemicals it has in it. I don't buy chocolate as often anymore, what I try to buy is organic and free trade etc so much more expensive and haven't bought Hershey bars in a couple of years. It became too sweet also waxy feeling to the mouth. I haven't made cookies in a number of years so will make sure I check the packages if I do this year. I remember someone once told me , Something is only worth as much as someone will pay for it. So If I can do without something I don't give them my money. I would do more bread baking canning etc if my health weren't so lousy . I hate having to buy premade things.

I think they started with the coffee and cranberries at least 10 yrs ago, maybe more.
    Totally agree!!
