I grew up in Florissant, Missouri in the 1970s.  Our local IGA store was the
place we road our bikes to most often. They had a bakery there that was pretty 
good, and my favorite thing there was something called Fruit Rocks. I think 
they were like three for a quarter or something like that. They were big, the 
size of my kid fist, covered in powdered sugar.  But not a cookie.  Almost 
spherical, like a...well, like a good-size rock.  They were heavy, dense and 
moist inside, wight fruit (I think like cherries and raisins), nuts of some 
kind.  They were delicious, and I can't find a recipe to save my life.  
Any ideas?



Hi John,

Sorry, I can't find anything at all about these. IGA has a website here: My IGA  You might try writing to them.

I'll post this for reader input.
