Armadillo Droppings (praline candy)

"Armadillo Droppings” is the name of a praline candy from the Armadillo Candy Co. Lammes Candies has “Choc’Adillos” made from almonds, but “Armadillo Droppings” are probably closer to Lammes Candies’ “Texas Chewie.”

“Droppings” mean “chocolate” in candy lingo; Alaska-themed items include “moose droppings.”

The Story of Armadillo Droppings
On a ranch not far from Bandera, Texas, Old Maria was mixing pralines in the big black iron kettle on the old ranch stove, when two pesky armadillos knocked over the trashcan. By the time Maria had run off them rascally critters, the pralines had gone a cookin’ much longer and browner then usual, and when the cowboys came in for dinner and saw all them little pralines in row, Slim drawled “Whatcha gota there, Maria? Armadillo Droppings?”
...and so a Texas tradition was born --- bite size delicious dark brown sugar pecan pralines!!
