Tiny cinnamon jaw breakers that came in a paper tube container like B-Bs. Man, those little jokers were HOT!

oh heck yeah! Bitty bombs were one of my favorites to buy at the local carry-out. I would love to know if they are sold anywhere as a retro candy!

I loved Bitty Bombs, but every time I asked anyone about them they didn't know what I was talking about. I'm so glad I came across your site! Now I can prove that I'm not crazy!!!

Yes! I'm not crazy after all. I loved Bitty Bombs, and none of my friends remember them. Used to get them at the Ben Franklin store in Springfield, Missouri in the late seventies.

My Mom told me to get out of the house, as she wanted to clean, and it was too nice to be inside.(1970 something). So, I strolled down to the corner store. I walked in and bought my ultimate favorite ... BITTY BOMBS AND A COKE! As, I sat on that hill drinking and eating my delights, I never thought that that those would the happiest memories of my life!

Bitty Bombs were great, and so many people don't remember them (or never knew of them). I try to describe them, and they always say, "Oh, like a Red Hot?" 'NOOOOOOOOOOO not like a Red Hot! Red Hots get stuck in your teeth; Bitty Bombs crumbled nicely like a little shell." So hard to explain, but so delicious!

I too remember Bitty Bombs and loved loved them. I wish they would make a come back. They definitely were not like Red Hots - I loved how they crunched. Fond candy memories!

1977 I remember my buddy and I taking milkcrates full of soda bottles to cash in for change at the local candy store and we always made sure to get at least 4 containers of bitty bombs. Awesome memories.
