I have more important things to do with my time.

High Five!
I read that yesterday.
Wondering if this would be the time to grab them and then sell them later at a huge markup.

Mary Janes...yummmmmmm
Haviland Mints...definitely love those along with the Squirrel Nut Zippers.

NECCO, America's oldest candy maker, has announced that if they can't find a buyer, they will be closing their doors.

Sales of their candy has skyrocketed, with prices reportedly surging online on sites such as eBay (note:I havent verified whether or not prices are actually going up and if there's an arbitrage opportunity there)

Candies they make:
Sweethearts - those chalky, heart shaped candies with words such as "Be Mine" printed on them

NECCO Wafers - wafer candies in orange, lemon, lime, clove, chocolate, cinnamon, licorice, and wintergreen flavors

Candy Buttons

Clark Bar

Haviland Thin Mints - filling flavors of original mint, orange, raspberry, or double chocolate

Mighty Malts - malted milk balls

Sky Bar - chocolate bar with peanut, vanilla, caramel, and fudge

Slap Stix -caramel pop swirled with banana nougat

Squirrel Nut Zippers - peanut and caramel chews

Mary Jane - peanut butter chews

Never had a Sky Bar, but they sound good.  Loved the Mighty Malts as a kid. Same with the Haviland Thin Mints.  Sadly, I seldom see any of these candies for sale any more, thanks to competitors buying up the shelf space :(
Yes, that article is a good read. Too bad it won't do anything to help spur a fix.

And I am not being the collection agency for states where I have no physical presence. I have more important things to do with my time.

It is awful.
I can't imagine any age group liking that.
Showed my 28 year old and my 33 year old after the above comment and both of them said they wouldn't spend a moment on that forum.

I wonder how many sellers Amazon has lost to the redesign.
I used to breeze in and breeze out of the forums, but no more.

Thanks for the article.
I've rethought the Alexa in my office.
Definitely don't want it for my Seller Account.

However, forcing websites who are not located within the state to send a letter to each customer and collect taxes for 45 states is crossing the line.
