Candy Concoctions

I just got back from a Memorial Day BBQ at my brother's house in CT. He lives right on Main St. where the parade runs, so as we sat there and drank our beers and sangria, we were bombarded by candy thrown by the passing Girl and Boy Scouts. It was like Halloween without all the work, but amaong the Smarties and Tootsie Rolls, I found two new confectionary treats:

NERDS now make Gumballs! And Dubbel Bubbel has teamed up with Atomic Warheads to put out four nice, new, sour flavors of gum - Lemon, Apple, Cherry and Berry!

And does anyone remember Alexander the Grape and Johnny Appletreats (or were they Appleseeds)? Mac mentioned these this weekend and I had all but erased their names from my memory until she said the magic words. I know Lemonheads and Atomic Fireballs are still around, but can you still get these?
