Description
Red cherry or grape suckers that cost a nickle. Open and find "Winner" on a strip of white paper and you get a free one. They may be a carry over from the 60's though. We used to get them at the drive in theater.

Those Winner Suckers were great! and I was just thinking about them, and that's how I came across this site. I wish someone could post a picture of them yes Cherry and Grape Flavored Only, and I won My share of them from a new box waiting to be opened, or the last three in box. Those were the Days. Sure would like to see a picture of one.

I love the winner suckers, there was a store across from the elementry school, parents would give their kids 1.00 on their birthdays to take the whole class to the store, each kid would get a nickle..... we would always buy the winner suckers and hopefully get 2 or 3.....Would love to have one!!! They need to start making them again...

my family also had a neighborhood store across the street from the elementary school. we had winner suckers just like they are discribed. I have search high and low for them and also CHUM GUM, but have been unable to find them. WE also had peanuts that were spanish peanuts in a little round cylinder that some had money in waxed paper in the bottom. I can not remember what they were called, but they are a unique memory too! God Bless!

They were deleciious!! I would buy several at a time and win 2 or 3 free suckers. On the back it said, I'm a winner!! Those suckers are real--winners. I hope they start making them again.

I remember the bumpy cherry & grape "winner" suckers too! My uncle would take me to a local saloon where he enjoyed a "light brown soda" and my sister and I would win one sucker after another! I guess that my uncle and I were both winners - since my aunt was Baptist and didn't believe in drinking.

Winner suckers were the best. Candy was stronger tasting back then, the grape was very grape and the cherry was strong cherry. Sorta like the soda pops back then had real sugar and had a stronger kick instead of the bland syrup they have now.

A fond childhood memory(Detroit). Good to know kids as far as California enjoyed them too. We would lick the bumpy side until it cut our tongue. Silly kids!!!

I loved getting them after Little League games in Fountain Valley, California in the 1970's. The "bumpy" front that simulated grapes was cool. Someone needs to market these again! I can't believe no one can nail down the company that made them!

I have been telling my co-workers about these "Winner Suckers" for sometime now, but could never find them on the Old Fashioned Candy sites. I was beginning to think that I had imagined them. Those were the "Good Old Days" (in the 60's). My sister and I always look forward to going to the little country store in our community and buying these and hoping to get more for our money. Would love to see them come back. Wonder if they would still be called "Winner Suckers". Nothing seems to be free these days.
Bev - July 12, 2011 - Report this comment
I have been telling my children about these suckers. I purchased them in a small candy store near my school. I thought the bumps resembled grapes and I may be wrong about this, but the wrappers were red for cherry and purple for grape, but I thought both wrappers said "Grape Suckers" and also "Pick A Winner". I always thought it strange that the red ones said Grape, but I just thought it was because it had the bumps. I've looked. I'm guessing they are no longer made, but if the company, whoever it was, started making them again - wouldn't we all buy them and buy them for our children and grandchildren?

My sister and I would go to the little store on the corner of our street, in St. Louis, in the (60's)I remember so fondly, walking in the rain with our umbrellas, raincoats and little boots. Hoping to find a winner, on our favorite suckers. Yes, I loved the little bumps. Wow! truly those were the good ole days. Do anyone remember a gum that was out at that time named Gum Gum, it came in this blue and white paper, with just a little powder on it. That gum was the best.

We had a gas heater in our house, and after I had ridden the school bus for 30 minutes (sucking on my Winner sucker the whole time), I would get warm and stick my sucker in the flames. It was awesome--made it even better, if that's possible! I want one right now--in Texas!!!

I dream about"winner suckers" and "chum gum". It was nothing like going to our little neighborhood store on Saturdays. The suckers were wrapped in purple or red waxy paper. I loved running my tounge over the bumps on one side of the sucker. Oh and "chum gum". It was awesome. Made my Oklahoma childhood memorable. Wish both were available now.

I too miss the Winner suckers. I would love to give these suckers at my 50th high school reunion -- I think it would joyously add to our trip down memory lane. I'd place one at each table setting and ask our guests not to open them until we called their table numbers. We could give a gift to those who have the "winner" suckers. Does anyone know -- I think they were made by "Charms."

We used to buy Winner Suckers at the Scera Pool in Orem Utah. I think they were made by Ike's Candy in Salt Lake City, Utah. They went out of business many years ago. Ike Hall's brother, Ralph Hall owned a candy company in Manhattan Beach California called Kay's Candy that also made colorful wrapped and swirled rainbow looking suckers, but not the Winner sucker.

I used to get these catty-corner from my elementary school in Collinsville, OK. You had to have a note from a parent to cross the street to M.R. Grocery on the corner. The kids called it Mr. Grocery. The old man or woman who worked there(or maybe owned) would unwrap the sucker right there and if it was a winner, they would rip off the paper hand you the sucker right then. Now people would be appalled if someone did that--so many germs! Those germs were tasty!
