You know the ones I am talking about- there are more "chalky" than the ones you usually find. They are "porous" and more crumbly. I love them.

I saw ribbon candy in Lexington last week at that old-fashioned candy store that 's there. Can't think of the name right now, but it right on Main St....red & white striped awning. Lots of yummy stuff in there! And they ship, too.

The Candy Factory, Uptown Lexington - Candies, Chocolate, Peppermints, Mallo Cups, Sugarfree, Nostalgic Candy, Retro Candy The candy you are referencing that is red white striped is called Red Bird it is made in Lexington as well.
My late dad use to live a few blocks away from that store and you can guess where I would spend my allowance

Charlotte area doesnt get much snow if any from west to east type storms.
The mountains generally absorbs most of the storm in that type pattern.
The ones that we have generally received big snows are the ones that get a low pressure with a mix of moisture from the gulf.
