"Do they still make Mallo Cups?" In the past 10 years, Boyer Candy Co. has survived the death of its owner, a legal squabble among his heirs that halted production for nine months, and distribution hiccups as the company regained its footing.
As for the candy bar pictured above, it remains a museum piece, displayed on the ledge of a perpetual calendar on the kitchen wall.
