A round candy that was a cross between sweet tarts and smarties. They were in a clear package as I remember being able to see the colors of the candy. Think they may have been made by Wonka Candies. Would love to see a picture of the candy if one can be found. Thanks

i used to save all my allowance to buy as many as i could! perfect amount of tartiness....maybe they stopped making it for being the size of a choking hazard???

I've told all of my children how as a child I would put a pucker in a dill pickle and suck it all recess! Bring them back :-)

Our local grocery store carried them. I would buy a package every time I went. My favorite were the purple ones. Some were not hardened and practically melt in your mouth. Yum!!!

Oh how I miss these Pukeroos. My favorite was the pink ones. I use to dig through the whole box to see which packs had the most pinks. I think I found one with about 6 of 10 pink and put them all in my mouth at the same time.
