#7 in my list of all time favorite candy is...

Vanilla Charleston Chews!
They are delicious! And yes, you should try them frozen. Here's the back story on these delectable little slices of heaven:

-consists of flavored nougat covered in chocolate
-created in 1922 by the Fox-Cross Candy Company
-named for the Charleston, a popular dance at that time.
-available in vanillachocolateblueberry, and strawberry flavors. At one time there was a fifth flavor, banana. **I have never tried any of the other flavors and can only vouch for the vanilla.**
-Mini Charleston Chews are a bite-sized, similarly-shaped version of the candy bar, introduced in 1998.
-Squirrels love them
