Boyer’s Mallo Cup

While on that fateful trip to Pennsylvania in February I picked up some Mallo Cups. How could I not? They’re made right there in Altoona by the Boyer Candy Co. Soon, I will have tasted all the marshmallow cups there are. Boyer is known for cup candies, they also have the Smoothie Peanut Butter Cup, which has a devoted following.


The Mallo Cup is the East Coast version of the Cup-o-Gold which consists of a milk chocolate cup filled with marshmallow (of differing consistencies) and a little coconut on the top.

The coconut smell is quite apparent when raising the cup to the mouth. The chocolate is sweet and very creamy with the coconut bits providing a chewy texture. The marshmallow center is soft and runny, but not too flowing as to make a mess.

Like the Valomilk, the Mallo Cup suffers from some structural integrity issues - in this case the chocolate base is too thin, so I was not able to remove either cup in my package from the paper without leaving some chocolate behind - basically bottoming out. (If you look closely at the photo, which you can click to enlarge, you’ll see that there is no base at all as I wasn’t able to peel it off for the photo. Maybe refrigeration would help.) The marshmallow itself has a nice flavor and consistency - it’s not at all foamy but not viscous or grainy like some others marshmallows. It doesn’t have any perceptible flavor of its own so I came away with more of a chocolate/coconut vibe.

I liked it quite a bit better than the Cup-O-Gold, I liked the sweetness of the chocolate, nutty scent of the coconut and mellow filling and the proportions seem better balanced (the Cup-O-Gold seemed to be too much chocolate and of course was single cup in a package).

The unique selling proposition of the Boyer Candies, though, is the “Play Money Rebate Offer”. The tray in the Mallo Cup package is actually a coupon advertising their rebate program - save up 500 Points and you can get a $1.00 rebate. Each Mallo Cup tray is worth 5 points. Yes, you get a dollar for every 100 Mallo Cups you buy! The points are also good for other merchandise such as candy tins, sweatshirts, mugs and caps. I have no idea how long they’ve been doing this, but the copyright notice on the package says 1983.

Other opinions: Writers/Artists Snacking at Work gave it a 7.5, Candy Wrapper Museum just doesn’t like marshmallow, thinks it smells like coconut and finally, read about the long road back for the Mallo Cup production line.

  1. I grew up in Altoona and every Christmas, my elementary school classmates and I would get a gift from the Boyer company…a little holiday box filled with mallo cups and peanut butter cups!  the little boxes didn’t have the play money in them though but I sure loved collecting those cards!  what great memories of that yummy candy!

  2. I ADORE Cup-O-Gold, and I’d love to try these, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen them out here on the West Coast (Orange County).  For that matter, I can never seem to find Cup-O-Gold anymore, either.  I could order them, but if I had to buy a whole case of candy, I’d have to eat a whole case of candy!  smile

    I do order modjeskas, though…those are outstanding candies.

  3. I’ve only had mallo cups once and it was refrigerated (my roommate prefers her chocolate that way). It was decent, but I think I would prefer it not refrigerated as the marshmellow filling was a bit too tough.

    Comment by g on 4/06/06 at 9:29 am #
  4. The copyright date might be 1983, but it would’ve been updated in 1994 for the addition of “Nutrition Facts”.  Like Valomilk, the Mallo Cup package appeals to me in a kind of way, but I just don’t want the candy that’s inside.  The only box that I would buy today just to have the box would be Cherry Chan.

  5. They always look to me as if they’re crumbly, which scares me off them.

    Comment by Carly on 4/06/06 at 12:28 pm #
  6. Every once in a while, I would get one of those from people during Halloween.  I remember them as being pretty good, but I haven’t had them in an age.  Thanks for bringing back good memories smile

    Lesley - I’m inclined to agree - Modjeskas are like naked See’s Scotchmallows ... yum!

    g - yeah, I’m not keen on refrigerated mallows ... but it might make them easier to remove from the cups.

    Dave - excellent point about the wrapper!

    Carly - yeah, when I had my first Cup-o-Gold I didn’t know that was coconut on top, it just looked unappealing.

    Miriam - I recall getting these at trick-or-treat too ... and I always traded them away!

    Steph - lucky you! I grew up near a Purina dog chow factory ... they never brought us anything. (Well, not that we knew of, but I did eat school lunches.)

  8. When I was a kid, you could save 500 points and get a box of candy in the mail!  I was so disappointed when they changed it to only a dollar off coupon.  (I think this happened around the same time Cracker Jack stopped putting real toys in their boxes.)  Now, with a stamp costing 39 cents to mail it in, it is not worth the trouble fore the 61 cents differential.

    BTW, not all coupons are 5 points - they have 10, 25 and 50 point tickets as well - and maybe an occasional 100 point if lucky.  So it will not take 100 purchases of Mallo Cups to get to 500 points.  Still, not worth the hassle.

    Comment by Brian on 4/19/06 at 3:31 am #
  9. This is one of my favorite candies!!!  I pick up several pkgs every time we go to Cracker Barrel (which also has Valomilk).

  10. I don’t often have the Mallow Cups from Boyers, but I love the Peanut Butter Smoothies!  I’m used to seeing Boyers items sold all around here since I only live 20 minutes from the factory.  Gardner’s Candies is also very close though I’m not sure if they have a certain marshmallow candy.  They’re famous for their Peanut Butter Meltaways.  Such a unique and smooth filling.  Try them if you ever have the chance. smile

  11. I lived two streets down from the Williamsport Candy Co. which is pretty much Williamsport’s best-kept secret from it’s own citizens and I’ll never forget the first time my father took me as a child.  After the first time I ate one, I fell in love with them and thus began my collection of the “mallow cup rebates”. I have over 100 of them and unlike the description above says, I’ve seen them range anywhere from 5 cents to 50 cents.

    Comment by Ariana on 6/05/06 at 3:05 pm #
  12. I grew up on Mallowcups back in Pittsburgh.  We’d get the 2 pack with the coins.  Some coins were 50 cents and some as little as 1 cent.  You’d collect 500 cents worth of coins and get free chocolate.  Now, I guess they give $1 back.  My mother sent me a bunch of coins, so I could get several dollars back.  The 2 packs have a card on the bottom which has 2 coins.  We used to get the mini mallow cups at Halloween, but the chocolate seemed to overpower the marshmallow filling; you’d open the package and the bottom would be hard marshmallow filling leaking out.  But, they’re great just the same!  I get my mom to send me some out occasionally.

    I did get a 50 point card on my last package ... I didn’t understand until the comments here that they varied (like a lottery).

    Scott - I’m guessing shipping candy is just too costly - easier to send you the money to buy it locally.

  14. I have eaten Mallo Cups since I was a kid.I am now a grandmother. It was a treat to get to go to the corner store for a Mallo Cup.  Where I work at now they make sure to put several spaces with them in.  Our management, says you have to remember, “We have mostly women, and alot are grandmothers, and they all eat Mallo Cups, so we have to keep them supplied.”  We all laugh,  but we do go through alot of them.

    Comment by Nita on 6/15/06 at 2:20 pm #
  15. Mallo cups are good. I eat them all the time. I’ve saved up 945 points so far! I’m saving for a tin of the candies which costs 1000 points. I just wish all of the prizes didn’t cost so much!
    In my last Mallo cup, I got 50 points!

  16. I grew up in Altoona, but live in South Carolina now.  Every trip I make back to Altoona, I stop at the Boyer Factory and buy a box of imperfect Mallo Cups and/or imperfect Peanut Butter Smoothies if they have them.  I just bought some last weekend and they are priced at $5 for a 5lb box (Roughly 100 cnt).  I take them into work for my coworkers.  They love them, but can’t get them down here.  I remember when Boyer candy bought Lakemont Park and called it BoyerTown.  I think they lost a lot money on that and probably should’ve put that money toward distribution instead, because the changes they made to the park sucked.  Anyway, it’s Lakemont Park again, home of the world’s oldest wooden roller coaster.

  17. Boy am I glad I came across this site.  I grew up in Philadelphia Pa in the early 50’s.  I have lived in Columbus Ohio for 20 years and even though people here seem to be familiar with the candy nobody remembers the “coins” printed on the package support card.  My brother and I redeemed many $5.00 sets of “coins” for candy.  I also remember getting a couple $1.00 cards (for a kid, that was like hitting the lottery) I seem to remember you got 12 candy packages for redemption. Does anyone else remember?

    Comment by Bruce on 7/29/06 at 4:13 pm #
  18. Growing up in Northern Pennsylvania, I collected the coins and redeemed them for 45 RPM records. 500 coins would get you 10 45’s.  Living in Denver now, hard to find out here.

  19. I was raised in a town north of Altoona named Bradford.  Actually, I have to drive through Altoona to get home.  For me, Mallow Cups are one of the candy bars I would choose if I had to choose one.  I love them.  I’ve tried the Cup-O-Gold and the Valomilk versions and I dislike them.  They don’t satisfy the craving for a Mallow Cup as there is nothing quite like it.

    Comment by Kristie B on 8/30/06 at 5:07 pm #
  20. Today I was cleaning out some closets and came across a bag—and what was in it but Mallow Cup coins!  Seein that I am now 50, that means I have been hanging on to these cards for about 40 years now!  It’s amazing to look back and see what was really important to you as a kid.  And yes—I even have a $1.00 card—and yes, it did feel like hitting the lottery.  My kids are now to to count up how many I have—I’ll keep you posted!

  22. My grandfather use to own a Mill/Grocery Store in Jonesborough TN.  I can remember, everytime I’d go visit - Mallo Cup and a scoop of hand dipped ice cream was my treat.  That was 42 years ago.  Over the last year I moved to WY and no one out here knew what I was talking about.  So for my birthday when my parents asked me what I wanted (keep in mind they have bought me cars and houses before)I told them…Mallow Cups.  Yea, there was a long period of silence on the phone. Dad had a hard time finding them now that Pappaw has past away and the store isn’t in the family any longer.  BUT…he and some friends scoured the city until they found enough to make a box and I think it was the best present anyone could have given me! It brought back a lot of fond memories for me! Forget the points!!! This is a family tradition I trying to carry on here!  Not to mention, I had to put them little suckers under lock and key cuz now everybody out here in Wyoming’s looking for them.  Probably re-started the craze for them in good ole Northeast TN too!

  23. I used to live close to Altoona and everytime I go back to visit I try to make a stop at the Boyer factory to get some smoothies and mallo cups.  They are the greatest.

    Ann - you can order them right from the factory via their website (linked above in the review specs):

    I’m not sure where you can find them locally though, maybe someone near you will chime in.

    Comment by Cybele on 2/12/07 at 3:53 pm #
  26. I wished I could get a bunch of imperfect mallow cups. I have several people at my work that love them to death. What do you say Chuck? I Just wish that Boyer would go back to the 500 points redeemed and get 10 packs of mallow cups sent to you in the mail. Perhaps we need to get a petition drive going.

  28. I grew up in a little coal mining town outside of Johnstown, and every year at Christmas in Sunday School we’d get the little gift boxes of Mallow Cups and I think Smoothies (commenter #1 is right - you didn’t get the coins). My parents still go to the factory every year to pick up the Sunday School treats. Occasionally when we go up to PA, I’ll buy a Mallow Cup on the way back at Sheetz in Bedford, or if I’m at the Altoona VA Hospital (one of my customers) I’ll hit the vending machine. I still get excited about getting 50 cents on my cardboard coin, even though I don’t do anything with them.

  30. Mallo Cups are great! When I was a kid I saved up 500 points and sent in for a case of them.  Now you only get $1 rebate, but for 1000 points you cant still get a tin of candy.  Other prizes are at

    Comment by Kieran on 3/23/07 at 7:32 am #
  32. Like everybody else who grew up in PA,  Mallo Cups were always available and always a favorite candy.  Not so when you move elsewhere.  Occasionally I find them in a store around here but not often enough.
    Next month,  my step sister and her husband will come to visit me.  They always ask is there anything from home I want.  Guess what my “anything from home” will be this year?  And chocolate covered pretzels too.

    Comment by georgie on 5/10/07 at 2:21 pm #
  33. I have my supply of mallo cups,  some pnut butter cups and pnut butter chocolate covered pretzels.  Even enough to share with my kids and grandkids.  That is called happiness.  If anybody has a Sav A Lot store,  you should be able to find mallo cups there.  They are fresh but not as wonderful as those fresh from the factory.  Happy Eating.

  34. My dad loves Mallo Cups and used to eat them all the time back in W. Virginia. But when we moved to the West coast he could’t find any, he was really disapointed. But 15 years later we went back to see some family and while doing so my dad was on the hunt for Mallo Cups. We finallly found 2 boxes of Mallo Cups at Sheetz, my dad started taking the King sized Mallo Cups but then instead he stoped and just took the whole box of them. He even bought a styrofoam cooler and ice so that they wouldn’t melt in the car. (Me and my sister split the other box)

    Comment by Bill on 9/10/07 at 2:13 pm #
  35. LOVED Mallo Cups.

    I’m sad they are not readily available at the corner stores near me in Colorado.

  36. I collect Mallo Cup Play Money and Candy Wrappers.  If any one out there has any to sell or knows of where there are any, please let me know.

    Comment by Bill Miller on 9/29/07 at 6:24 am #
  37. I got seconds in the mallo cups a couple of months ago (from the factory) and they didn’t have the mallo cup play money.  And the Mallo cups I buy at Sav a Lot doesn’t have the play money either. I wonder if they still put it in the candies?  I need to ask sister-in-law who works for Boyer Brothers.  Anyhow, if anybody gets to Altoona and goes to Boyers, you can buy seconds much much cheaper then the “best” ones.  Taste just as good.  And if you ever get the chance to get the pretzels, covered with peanut butter and then chocolate,  don’t miss this treat!

    Comment by georgie in TN on 9/29/07 at 10:23 am #
  38. oops,  I meant to comment on Adeena mentioning Gardners candies.  Oh so delicious.  I can actually find some of them at Easter,  at our local Rite Aid here in TN.

  39. I grew up on Mallow Cups.  They are on my top five list.

    And I have to drive straight through Altoona on my way home to Bradford.

    Comment by Kristie B on 9/29/07 at 2:25 pm #
  40. I never find them any more in stores in CT. I have loved them since childhood (which is a long time ago). Saw some in a Boston 7-11 and I bought all they had.  Is the Boyer company privately owned?  Must be hard to make $‘s with distribution so narrow.

    Comment by Stuart on 9/30/07 at 3:38 pm #
  41. Mallo cups are the greatest thing. I just love them. I can’t get enough. Not many places around in northeast Wisconsin sell them anymore. They are #1 on my list of favorite chocolate. MMMMMMMMMMMMM….

  42. I love mallow cups too. By far my favorite candy of all time. You guys are right can’t find them oftem enough anymore. I would love to try the cup-o-golds and valomilks!

  46. Loved these things since I was a kid, and still do. I’m likea kid to hurry up and open the package to see how many points I got. I collect the points and tape them together. If anyone doesn’t want them please let me know, I would like to have them.

  48. i love mallo cups except for the coconut and i scrape the top part off—-valomilk are good but not as good as the mallo cups.  have you ever thought to make a coconut free malo cup?  I think it would really sell and then I could eat the whole cup and not take time to scrape the top and loose some of that wonderful chocolate.

  49. I dont know what happened in the last year or so to the Mallo cup recipe but Boyer has definately changed something, They   have a terribly peculiar taste.

    Another candy ruined.

  50. When I was a young boy , back in the late forties, we bought Mallow Cups. They had a contest to spell out the word"Mallow Cup”, with the letters inside the package. If you spelled out the whole word, you won a case of them. Everyone in the whole town could not find the letter “M” , so we never won anything.

    Comment by Harold on 11/16/07 at 9:29 am #
  51. I’ve always loved Mallow Cups so I’d get a bunch of them when I found a gas station or store that carried them. Now I just order them by the case from on-line candystores so I can have one whenever I want. I have about 3000 cents collected and the values (5,10,25,50) are pretty evenly distributed. I haven’t seen a 100 coin in recent years though.

  52. My grandfather, who worked for the Norfolk & Western railway in Roanoke, VA, used to pick up the discarded Mallo Cup Money off the train tracks.  I’ve got a bunch of it, though most of the money is cut from the full cards.  I’ve even got 2 Mallo Dollars (again, cut from card), “F” and “J”.  I’d part with some of this for the right price; email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

  54. Living in Texas means never buying a Mallo Cup from a store.  Had lunch with some friends today and how we got started talking about Mallo Cups is beyond me.  I grew up in Western Pa (50’s/60’s) and loved Mallo Cups as a child and still do, but no one sells them here.  Thank goodness for the internet.

    Comment by Dorian on 3/01/08 at 1:20 pm #
  55. I work for Cracker Barrel and all of our Country Stores carry Mallo Cups, so when you are traveling stop in a Cracker Barrel and get your Mallo Cups, I am a big fan of them since childhood.  I used to collect the coins and for 500 pts you got candy in the mail.  I love them. And still collect the coins today.

  56. I live in Philadelphia,Pa. As a kid growing up in the 60’s, I bought a lot of Mallocups and saved the Mallocup play money.I once got a $1 coupon, it was like hitting the lottery! After saving 500 points was instructed to send the points to Altoona and recieved a box of Mallocups in the mail, good memories.

    Comment by jim on 3/24/08 at 4:36 pm #
  57. i grew up in Altoona in the 40s and 50s and early 60s only about 4 blocks from the
    boyer factory and have very fond memories of the overpowering, wondeful sweet smells that used to emanate from that factory. it was absolutely delicious.
    i too can remember the “cents” cards as we used to call them. only in those days they had them in denominations from 1penny to $1.00. we would collect them and run up to the factory and turn them in for 10 new mallo cups and start to save all over again
    i don’t think the mallo cup will ever go out of style and i’m so glad they are on the rebound. when i was in altoona this past summer, i did my share to help them stay in business. walked out of there about $85.00 poorer. but it was worth it.
    hope they never go out of business.

  58. just wondering where you can find mallo cup ice cream; it used to be made, can never find any store that sells it

    Comment by Nancy on 5/15/08 at 4:10 am #
  59. Not sure where Nancy found her Mallo Cup Ice cream but am including a web site that carries several unusual ice creams, mallo cup ice cream being one of them.  Think you would need to be in PA to get some of it though.

    It sounds like a place I’d like to visit.

    Comment by georgie on 5/15/08 at 6:09 am #
  60. Another comment for Nancy.  Hershey’s Ice cream company in Harrisburg (not connected with Hershey’s chocolate)also makes or used to make the Mallo cup ice cream.
    And my sister in Altoona tells me PSU ice cream will be served at the Blair County Fair this year.

  61. I was born in raised in Western NY, outside of ERIE Pa and loved Mallo Cups, They cant be found and nobody in Missouri ever heard of them boy they are missing a treat Skip

  62. I was a huge Mallo Cup fan growing-up in Northern NJ in the early 70’s.  Bought at local candy stores walking to school, and sometimes a box of ten at the Two Guys department store.  I sent in 500 points several times, receiving the 10 in a small box.  I also recall stringing those points along a strip of scotch tape, and being thrilled to get a “dollar” coin.  Found someone selling a variety of coins several years ago on E-bay, including the elusive “dollar”.  I now have a pair of small frames hanging in my otherwise 100% suburban den with six small items, and as people move closer to them - - I always knnow the last thing they expect to find are the 1 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 25 cent, 50 cent, and dollar Mallo Cup coins.  Most don’t know the candy or the coins, so just don’t understand…

  63. I’ve been loving mallo cups for more than 25 years and have never had any problem finding them in almost any convenience store near my hometown. I’ve never saved the points-they seemed kind of pointless, but the candy is terrific.

    Comment by Shane on 5/30/08 at 5:43 pm #
  64. If you cant find Mallo Cups in your area you can buy on ebay or a number of online stores.  Just Google Mallo Cups.  Then you can enjoy that wonderful flavor and collect the play money.

  65. Try to order candies.   
    There’s phone numbers to call and order.  If you get near their location,  you can buy the seconds much cheaper and they are just as delicious.  Their chocolate, peanut butter covered pretzels are out of this world. Our Sav a Lot store here in TN carries mallo cups, as well as most Cracker Barrel restaurants.

  68. Does anyone remember the offer of saving so many wrappers up for a chance to win a pony?  I ate a lot of Mallow Cups!

  69. Boyer Candy now has a website where you can order directly from the factory. Go to for all your favorites.

  70. I have enjoyed mallow cups for years on end. I have collected the points and cash them in every so often but is not like what it used to be when I was a child. I couldn’t wait to get my free box of mallow cups in the mail.
    I would like to know if there is anyone that doesn’t collect the points if you wouldn’t mind to send them my way. I have enjoyed doing this for years and will continue to do so.

  72. I have eaten and loved Mallow Cups for years. They are my favorite candy bar/cup but here in Kentucky they are very hard to find. When I do see them I buy a whole bunch like I did today and have already eaten 6 of them. I was a little disappointed in them as there wasn’t as much coconut in the chocolate as there usually is. Actually there was very little coconut and one had none, 2 had only one sliver and the rest it was hard to find any in them. Please go back to putting in the usual amount of coconut as that is what makes them special.  Thank You

  73. Like many of you, I grew up in NW PA and still live here.  Mallo Cups are generally available around here but I have to say that I am very disappointed in both the quality and size of the candy.

    The recipe has changed and the candy cups are so small now - almost the size of a silver dollar.  Anyone else notice that?  Still a favorite of mine ~ I will buy them until I can no longer find them.

  74. I just sent the Boyer Company an email from their web site to let them know I recently found 2015 mello cup points all cut, taped to two sheets of paper ready to be mailed. There are three one hundreds, forteen fifties,and the rest twenty fives and tens…Of course this was completed some forty years ago. I used to buy my favorite candy from a local corner store and the candy machine at the bowling alley. I cann’t remember how much the candy was in late 60’s early 70’s? Maybe about 25-35 cents. I haven’t had an old cup in years!  By the way, all those corner stores are also long gone… I will wait to see what the boyer company has to say in their reply. Maybe I will just keep these old points and frame them with all of the rest of the stuff I have kept from my childhood. The mello cup was surely my favorite candy bar as a kid. I still purchase many candy bars today for my sweet tooth! I havn’t seen those mello cups any where in years in up state New York. Thanks for listening.

  75. we have a small store-deli mart and would like to know if you have the seconds in your mallo cups, we have gotten them before and they were such a big hit in our store. our customer really liked them alot and want to know when we are going to get them again.

  76. I grew up in the Southern Tier of NY. Hinsdale to be specific.  I loved Mallo cups then and I still love ‘em now!  Here in Rochester, NY they aren’t at every store, but they are around!  They are the best candy around.  I have ate them for over at least 35 years now. I have to say I am tempted to order them online.  The cost is up to 1.09 a pack in the store.  It is getting expensive to buy more than one! Rachelle

  78. I received the Marty Mallo Cup watch last year from Boyer. I sent in 8500 points which took me quite some time to collect but I enjoyed every one of those treats on the way. I beleive they are still available. You can send away for a catalog from Boyer with various items to collect points for.

  79. hi love the mallo cups buy them often eatting one now mmmmmm goooood!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Dar on 1/04/09 at 10:22 am #
  80. Believe it or not, I eat at least 730 Mallow Cups a year…minimum! (1,460 if you count the cups individualy in the twin packs)
    I eat 2 twin packs at lunch every single day, and I buy the six packs (smaller cups) at Sav-A-Lot for only .89 cents, and I eat at sometimes 3-4 packs of those on weekends, so technically I eat around 1,700 cups per year give or take a few!
    Is there a suppoert group for Mallow Cup abusers?
    If I ever become diabetic, then just shoot me.
    If Boyer ever goes out of business, then shoot me also.
    It’s not a real popular candy here, but then again it’s not really promoted very well and distribution is very limited it seems.
    I just toss the play money, but wow…had I saved all those points over the years!
    There’s a gas station on the corner from my job, and they buy Mallow Cups just for me.
    They tell me that I’m the only one who buys them.
    Every three weeks they order a box for me, and that’s where I buy my two twin packs at lunchtime.
    If Boyer would throw out a little advertising nationally, then sales would probably be better across the country.
    Either way, as long as I can get my Mallow Cup fix, then everything is alright in the world.
    As a matter of fact, I just finished eating an entire pack of the small ones in addition to my two at lunch.

  81. I eat mallow cups alot and I save up the points. I enjoy them so much that my wife thinks I’m nuts.

  82. Greg, I am a mallo cup addict and I need proffesional help! lol
    I would be glad to send you the points that I save from now on.
    I will save them for a while and then I will contact you via e-mail and get all the mailing info.
    If the points were as valuable as they once were, then I would save them to.
    I remember as a kid I saved up x amount of points and the company sent be a whole box of them.

    BTW…I ate 11 cups yesterday   smile

    Comment by Jeff on 1/17/09 at 4:35 am #
  83. Just like to remind folks I buy points.  I match what boyer pays, plus pay postage and 10 cents for the envelope.

    I pay more for old ones.  Let me know what you have.

  84. Jeff,
      Thanks so much for replying to me. I have been collecting points ever since I was a kid. And like you, I used to send them in for a box of mallow cups. I now have over 10000 points and still going. I order them directly from the company by the boxes (usually 6 at a time)and save lots of money. I’ll be glade to pay for the cost of shipping and handling.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

  85. My dad grew up in Johnstown, PA. and moved to Michigan in the 1940’s. His last name was also Boyer although my sister did some family tree research we are not related to the company. I grew up knowing of the mallow cups and smoothies and having them when I was a kid. I hadn’t had them in years until the other day I found them at my local Dollar store. I had the mallow cups and they are as good as I remember them. My dad has sinced passed away in 1985 and I would love to get back to PA. to visit his hometown and visit the Boyer Candy Company.

    Comment by Mary (Boyer) on 2/15/09 at 12:23 pm #
  86. Can I tell you how much I love MALLOW CUPS! 
    I almost have enough points to receive a dollar.
    Years ago, the company sent you mini mallow cups for every 500 points. By the time you pay for postage…well that gives you about 58 cents!

    Comment by Luann Silvestri on 2/21/09 at 9:30 am #
  87. I LOVE Mallow Cups - they are my favorite candy of all.  I have been eating them since I was a young girl.  Since I live in Texas it is hard to find them. In fact there is only one place that sells them.  My young grandaughters will get me a whole box of 2 Mallow Cups for a nice surprise.  They recently brought them to me the day I had major back surgery and what a big smile they got from mimass. When every we vacation up north I buy as many as I can to bring home. A couple of years ago two of my grandson went to New York with us and they two now love Mallow Cups.  Thanks for staying on the shelves even thou you only sell them in about 4 states back east.

  89. A lot of good information about Boyer’s mallo cups, such as history, location of the factory and how to redeem play money for prizes (details of which ar currently not available on their web site as of 4/2009) can be found on the “Everything about Mallo Cups” web page at

    There is also a Mallo Cup fan page on

    I wrote some time ago about saving the points. It has been some time ago (1-17-09) that we had talked. You had mentioned that you would save them for me. I know that you have the addiction as well as I about eating the mallow cups. Email me back soon.

    I am still looking for the points if anyone is not wanting them. I save them up and am trying to get the mallow watch. If anyone can help please email me at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

    Comment by Greg on 7/18/09 at 7:57 pm #
  95. If you have a Sav A Lot in your area,  they always carry Mallo Cups.  If you live near Altoona, PA, you can go to Boyers Outlet store and get Mallo cups as well as other goodies.  Seconds are cheaper and just as good.  If that doesn’t work, you can order them online.

    Comment by georgie on 7/19/09 at 4:09 am #
  96. Oh I love this candy. It is so hard to find. When i do find them I buy a few of them. I use to eat these as a kid. I have also been looking for a recipe to make these. I am pretty sure they are easy to make.

  98. If you have a big lots store near you check because sometimes they carry the mallo and peanut butter cups.

  99. I absolutely LOVE Mallo-Cups!!  We need them back, any size is fine with me.
    I too get them at Cracker Barrel, but should be in all stores.

    Comment by Luann on 9/10/09 at 9:25 am #
  100. To anyone who’s interested, Mallo Cups can be purchased at Cracker Barrels across the country.  I know beause I recently had surgery and purchaed a whole box of them from CB for my recupertaion.  They are $1.95 for a 2-cup pack, if I recall correctly.

    And boy, were they wonderful.  I’ve been a fan since I was a kid, and I think it’s one of the few candies that hasn’t changed their recipe or size, not like my other childhood favorite, Reese’s, which not only got smaller, but the peanut butter center is too meely, not at all creamy like I remember them.

    And now I have 480 pts in Play Money that I can’t bear to throw out!

    Happy memory eating… ;^)

  101. Hello all you mallow cup finatics. Is there anyone that has points they would like to give away? Please let me know.

    Comment by Greg on 11/27/09 at 5:25 pm #
  102. Why give them away when people will buy them?  Plus, if you’re that into them, you’d know they were MALLO cups.

    Comment by on 11/28/09 at 11:32 am #
  103. Wow, this comment thread has become a home for Mallo pointers!  I’ve never tried them (I don’t like coconut) but I did spot an 8-pack of the mini peanut butter cups today at the dollar store.  I was debating on buying them but passed because I wanted to see if there was a review posted here.

    Comment by Patrick on 12/19/09 at 5:00 pm #
  104. I just had these for the first time about a week ago. Collecting the points is my new obsession….

    Comment by john brown on 1/25/10 at 7:02 am #
  106. The Mallo Cup was my favorite candy when I was little and it’s still the best candy 40 years later.  More stores in NY are now carrying the Mallo Cup.  I have wonderful memories of collecting the cards that came with the candy in order to get free Mallo Cups.

    Comment by Diane on 2/15/10 at 2:55 pm #
  107. I grew up in Saginaw Mi in the late 1960s and in the summer we would put two or three packs of Mallo Cups in the refrigerator. Talk about a good memory.  Now if they only made Milk Shake bars.

  108. Hey Scott,
    What part of Saginaw did you live? I grew up in the thumb area. Do you still live there now? Do you collect any of the points?

  111. You can locate places in every state to buy Mallo cups online by using Boyer’s store locator.

    Also, they will still honor the old coin cards if you have them.  You can print off a play money redemption catalog online here.

  113. I have been addicted to Mallo Cups since I was six years old, and I am now 58!  I have a friend who moved to a small town neer Altoona, so everytime I visit, we go and buy a box of my favorite candy and it lasts me a while, as long as I restrain myself.  Even in northern Maryland Mallo cups can be hard to find, though the Weis market has those “mini” packs of eight—for some reason, the small ones just aren’t as good.  Maybe because there is not enough marshmallow.  I have to have the full size!

    Comment by Sue Fine on 6/18/10 at 5:23 am #
  114. I have never tried the mini packs. So for me the full size Mallo Cups are the only way to go.

    Comment by Scott on 6/20/10 at 9:17 pm #

    Don’t know if you all know it but, I saw that Boyer now has dark chocolate mallow cups. I haven’t seen any yet for sale but I’m sure they’re good. I prefer dark over milk anyday. Also, does anyone throw out there points? If so I still collect them. Let me know

  129. I WROTE IN AUGUST OF 2010 THAT I HAD A FULL SET OF mallo cup letters and not much comments on that.  in november 2010, we went to las vegas and i took them into the pawn shop of the pawn stars.  the old man was the only star there, and i didn’t get a chance to meet him, but showed them to his first representative in charge.  i explained about the letters and asked if they were interested.  he took them to the back office where the old man was, and brought them back saying he wasn’t interested. the rep agreed with me as to how rare they are, and i gave him a mallo cup candy i’d broght with me and he took it in the back to the old man.  when he came back and told me a smile came on the old man’s face, and he took it into another back room.  no offer on the letters tho…........

  130. Was home to PA and to visit my sister in Altoona and sister-in-law who works for Boyers.  I came home with a five pound bag of Mallo Cups my sister got for us.  I’m diabetic but on occasion will “bum” a bite of mallo cup from whoever is eating one.  So delicious!  And memories that go back to childhood.  Georgie

  133. In the late 60’s, my best friend’s dad was stationed in Germany with the army, and during the winter months (so the candy wouldn’t melt), I mailed Mallo Cups to them because they missed them and couldn’t buy them there.

    Comment by Donna on 8/18/11 at 9:43 am #
  134. this is for bill.  no, i don’t want to haggle on my full set of letters.  they aren’t eating anything.  i just wanted to see if pawn stars were interested, and i found out they weren’t.  maybe because they probably never tasted them before.  oh, well, i can always pass them on to relatives.    don

  137. bill, nice to hear from u again.  we’re planning another trip to vegas in late oct. and i’m going to take a few more mallo cups to the pawn shop along with copies of the blog pages for them to read.  maybe they might get interested enough to send for some.  i wish i knew how to put a picture of my full set here for all to see, but i don’t and neither does my daughter.  by the way, i keep eating them and buy them at cb here, and have over 1000 pts, but never found a 1.00.

  140. I live in Anchorage, Alaska and the only place I’ve seen here that sell Mallo Cups is (strangely enough) Michael’s Crafts store.  They have a small “Retro Candy” section that is always stocked with Mallo Cups (and quite a few other retro goodies)..  although in my opinion, they jack the price up a tad too much.  raspberry   There are quite a few vendors on ebay that sell boxes of Mallo Cups (by the box) at very decent prices though! :0)

  141. I was surfing the web and came across this blog.  Spent several years oveseas in the military and often talked about Mallo and Smoothies as kids.  Folks never heard of them unless from Pa. Amazing they didn’t want Don’s cards at the Pawn Store.  Interested in selling? Had 3 this week and one in the cupboard!

  145. Yes, I saw that big pile of coins on ebay also, unfortunately they are all cut from the original cards.  I also saw some other for sale last week on ebay. 3 lots of 500 coins and ad 6 dollar coins and buyer was gaurneteed at least 1 or 2 when bought, but again all were cut from the cards and looked a bit worn.

  148. bill,sorry i haven’t gotten back with you,  yes, we went to vegas again last october, and again in march of this year (2012)  didn’t go back to th e pawn shop, cuz i wasn’t going to beg them to make an offer.  we’re going back this mid-sept.  debating over if i’ll visit the pawn shop.  the stars came to anderson, ind. this past oct and we went over there from here (OHIO) to see them.  they were at the casino there and were up on a stage where people brought stuff to sell.  i didn’t take anything so i just watched.  i’ll keep you posted.

  149. Don, its nice to hear from you.  Hope your trip was a fun one.  If you ever decide you want to take offers for the letter card set let me know.  I am very interested.

  150. bill….....leaving again for vegas mid sept. to visit our daughter and family.  haven’t decided yet if we’ll go back to the pawn shop.  i’m definately not taking the letters, but may make copies of the blog to show them the interest in mallo cups.  if i think of it, i’ll take a few to get their taste buds worked up. i’ll keep u informed.

  151. bill:  we went to vegas in sept.for 8 days, but didn’t go back to the pawn shop, but did go by it.  i asked my wife if she wanted to stop in and she said “no”, so we didn’t stop. she hates coconut, so never eats one.  my letters are in a plastic note book page that has pockets in it so they don’t get damaged.  i’ll take some pictures and send them to you or anyone else interested.  i’d still like to know if there is another full set of letters out there.  who knows, maybe mine is the only one in existance.

  152. Don, What color is the backgound of the card and the color of the letters?  There are multiple color sets. Cards are either Blue or Red (that i know of), then the letters on the cards I believe are either green and red or green and blue…on the road at the moment but would have to double check that.  Anyways, if interested in selling let me know.  Take care,

  153. Don, hope your trip to Vegas was fun.  Hope to go in the spring.  I have relatives who will not eat them because of the coconut(like your wife) - their loss :>)  If you do decide to sell let us know.  I have wanted the set for a long time.

  154. rod. the letters on the m, o, and c are red top, white where the letter is and red on the bottom.  the letters all are blue. a, l, l, u, and p is blue top, and blue bottom with red letters.  i wonder what the significance is.  the trip was great, but left more money in the casinos.  mom thinks our daughter here in ohio knows how to take a picture and send it by e-mail.  i’ll keep u informed.

  155. Hello Don and thanks for responding.  I just got back in town and pulled out what I have. It appears to me there are at least different sets (my guess 4).  I also have the Red Cards where I have Blue Letters, and also Green letters. I have the A,L,L,C,U,P in Blue Letters (missing the M & O).  Then in the Red Cards with Green letters I have A,L,O, C,U,P, missing M & an L.  Apparently the M is the hard one to get If I researched right.  In addition, there is at least 1, possibly 2 sets/additions of Blue background cards.  I have the Blue Cards with Red Letters in the middle, I have A,L,L,O, C,P, missing M and U. I’m guessing there is probably another Blue set of prob green letters but not seen any.  Here is what else is interesting. I have a Red Advertisement Card that states “New federal Regulations Require Discontinuance of MALLO CUP Letter Saving Game, completed sets will still be redeemed. Strange?  So my guess is the Red Cards are probably newer than the Blue backgound? No sure but best i can tell and relay to you based on what I have. Hope that helps somewhat. I’ll see if I can get my wife to post some pictures somehow.  Rod

  156. for rod and bill:  i took a picture of the cards on my cell phone.  my wife sez i can transmit it to u if i had yer cell phone number.  she knows more about that stuff than i do.  all i know is call some one cuz that’s the easy part.  past that i’m in the dark.  if they allow the cell phone numbers, i’ll send u a picture.

  157. i guess rod and bill haven’t been in here since i posted my last note on 11-2-12.  i don’t check it very often, but i look for follow ups to our talks on my mallo cup letters.  still can send pictures if an e-mail is allowed.

    Comment by don on 12/02/12 at 11:48 am #
  158. Hello Don, I usually get an alert.  I got today’s alert that you posted but not the one on 11/02 for some strange reason? You sure got me on the sending pictures and email.  Hate to put my email or phone number out on the wild internet.  Never can tell now a days.  I also checked the frequently asked questions for the blog and they read the stuff and don’t post links etc.  Now I’m kind of stuck as what to do?  Sure would like to see the picture or send you one of mine.

  159. Hello Don, haven’t seen any blogs lately.  I see on eBay there are some of the old red cards up for bid. These have both the blue and green letters. I just purchased a couple to finish my red card set with blue letters. Now have to find a couple green letters on the red cards and a couple for the blue back ground cards.  Anyways hope all is well and figured I’d post in case you wanted to see them.  Rod

  160. I noticed some comments here on the Mallo Cup letter cards. I believe I have two complete sets of these cards including the M cards. I will verify this and will update here.

    Comment by Roger on 9/07/13 at 1:05 pm #
  161. Sounds cool and would love to see a picture if possible of them.  Thanks for posting the note and look forward to your reply.

    Comment by Rod on 9/07/13 at 1:13 pm #
  162. Well I finally found my mallo cup letter cards and I do indeed have two sets of cards that spell out MALLO CUP. I also have many other letter cards in various colors. I would like to post a pic here but not sure if it is possible. I may post one set on ebay and you may view it there. I would be happy to answer any questions about these cards if anyone is interested in them.

  163. Roger sounds very interesting and I look forward to seeing on eBay and I’m very interested in purchasing. Thanks for responding. Rod

    Comment by Rod on 10/06/13 at 11:37 am #
  164. Have not been around for a while.  Roger that sounds great!  Please note here when you put them on ebay.  I really want to see it.

    Comment by Bill on 10/06/13 at 3:25 pm #
  165. I tried Mallo Cups for the first time today and I must say that I was NOT impressed.  I thought that they were something like VALOMILK candy, but OH GOD, they have SHREDDED COCONUT in them…YUKK!!  I hate shredded coconut.  Nowhere on the wrapper does it say that it contains shredded coconut!  Chewing shredded coconut is like chweing on straw, it never breaks down! I know several people who say the same thing!  I thought that it was just chocolate with a creamy marshmallow center.  Adding coconut to it just RUINS it, otherwise it might not be half bad! thanks, Kurt

  166. Can the Mallo-Cup Play Money go Crypto?

    Comment by AWeeSome Altcoin on 8/26/14 at 5:30 am #
  167. Lesley, seems to be a reverse:

    1) Hoffman’s Cup of Gold is a California thing and we both live in Calif. but you have trouble finding it there..(I also live in Orange County live you, or least by there..)

    2) Boyer’s Mallow Cups is an East Coast thing but I’ve found both of these delights here..had some at the local “Fresh and Easy” store….(don’t know how many states have them but they’re, itronically in the context of this, an organic store.)

    Comment by SCarras on 7/03/15 at 9:31 pm #
  168. PS The Mallow Cup that I bought HAD that “prize” thing that Cybele mentions!

    Comment by SCarras on 7/03/15 at 9:32 pm #
  169. Lesley again-So you hacven’t had either Mallow Cups or Cup Of Golds yet I’ve found them here….interestiung double irony..

    Lori-I also adore those Mallow Cups..

    To all-to clarify my last comment about the prze, I mention the offer about sending in….I hardly remembered this…wonder if anyone connected to Boyer is descended from the famed French star Charles
