I cannot speak for a manufacturer decision, but when products are discontinued, the reason(s) usually concern poor sales; newer products and limited space ability; new ownership; and reducing product lines. But in this case, you may be in luck! I did a search for Kits peanut butter molasses online; you can buy it in bulk bags from a number of sources (I cannot list them here, sorry). I've noted these sales availabilities with several taffy chews (my husband loves the Fralinger's peanut butter ones--they come in five pound bags!). Many online candy sources now sell items that no longer show up on store shelves. Do a search for "candy favorites Kits peanut butter molasses taffy" and see what you come up with.
