Atlanta schools to remain closed Thursday

Where can I find it?


Q: Please help me find my favorite candy bar from childhood. Every once in a while I’ll spot one, usually when I’m out of town. Is there a place locally where I can still get a Clark candy bar? Thanks. J. Wilson, email

A: Combining crunchy peanut butter with a milk chocolate coating, Clark candy bars made their first appearance in the late 1880s. Since then, the D.L. Clark Company has been bought out and, today, the venerable Clark Bar is produced by the NECCO company, which turns out a slew of old time favorites, including Mary Jane candies and Sky Bar. You’ll find Clark Bars for $1.89 each at Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shop, 115 Clairemont Ave., Decatur, 404-565-0156. This California-based candy haven filled with quirky treats — bacon soda — and vintage goodies, opened its third metro Atlanta store about a year-and-a-half ago in a former dance studio near Decatur Square, across from the Courtyard Marriott hotel.

Q: We love using Camay face and body bar soap, which is very popular in Canada, and we used to find it at our local Publix store. We no longer see it and would like to know if any other store sells it. Thank you for your assistance. Warren Taninbaum, email

A: You can find four varieties of Camay bar soaps at Buford Highway Farmers Market, 5600 Buford Highway, Atlanta, 770-455-0770. They’re priced from $1.09 to $1.19.

Q: Where can I find the single-serve sleeves of coffee without the creamer mixed in? I just want the dark, espresso-like coffee, not the one with the creamer. They come in little paper tubes about as long as a finger. They’re so convenient to have on the go. Thank you for any help. Sandra Mendez, email

A: You’ll find Mano Mixpresso and Pure Mild instant coffees in boxes of 20 individual serving sticks at Super H Mart, 6035 Peachtree Road, Doraville, 770-986-2300. There are several other brands and varieties you can choose from, including Maxim, and depending on the one you choose, prices range from about $5 to $8 per box of 20.

Q: I have used Finesse Moisturizing 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner for years. For a long time, I could get it anywhere you buy shampoo. Then I could only find it at Target. Target started not stocking it, but I could get it at a Target in Marietta, but no others. Now I can’t find it there. Anything you can do to help will be appreciated. Jay Braddy, Acworth

A: You’ll find Finesse self adjusting 2-in-1 moisturizing shampoo and conditioner in 13-ounce bottles for $2.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond, 130 Perimeter Center West, Atlanta, 770-673-0171. It’s located in the Harmon drugstore section of the store.
