Judging from our difficulties in finding them, some of you must already be aware of this but, we think CVS carries the best root beer barrel candy. Mrs. WYA! is a root beer barrel connoisseur and thinks the CVS brand barrels are superior to name brand ones. However, we frequently find various CVS locations are sold out of them. We were afraid that they were being discontinued so we asked an employee one day and he said a couple had just been in and bought a case of them! They must be kindred spirits.
