From the Candy Aisle: GORP (Good Ol' Raisins and Peanuts)

Product: GORP
Company: David & Sons / Nabisco
Years: Early 70's-early 80's (?)

Just a quick post today. I wanted to make sure I added this unique treat to the shelves before I forgot. I have never heard of this product before until I read about it on the super awesome blog by Jason Liebig called "Collecting Candy".

You should check it out. Go now! (Or hang out here for a bit. But then check it out immediately after.)

Anyway, here it is, Gorp. By Nabisco or David & Sons, depending on what year you are talking about, and who you ask, but since nobody seems to remember this, there aren't many people to ask. Except for Jason Liebig. And he's already told me everything he knows I think. (haven't you checked out his blog yet?)

Anyway, I'm looking for first hand memories of people eating/consuming/purchasing this product.

We need to keep these forgotten treats memory alive. GORP/GORP Plus........We will never forgot!

(Is it possible to forget something if you don't remember it in the first place? Hmmm.)

Anyway, GORP. Good Ol' Raisins and Peanuts.

It did exist.
