Do you remember the Necco wafers? I used to like these as a kid. I had one a long time ago as an adult and hated them.
OK, I was a brat back then and I can remember when my mom wasn't looking my cousin and I would toss them at people. We would see the person turning around to see what hit them in the head and we would duck down in our seat and crack up. Of course we got in trouble when we got caught.
I remember these little liquid filled wax bottles. I never really liked them but for some reason we would get them. I think it was to just chew on the wax.
We would mold little teeth out of the wax and pretend we lost a tooth.
I was a bit older when Pop Rocks came out. They were fun but a little scary because we heard stories how your stomach could blow up if you had to many or had a coke while they were still in your stomach.
Oh how I adored Fizzies! The little candy tablet that you put in water to make a fizzy drink. Only we didn't put them in water. We would just pop them in our mouth and let them fizz away. I remember at the liquor store they always sold chocolate Ice Cubes at the counter.
My mom used to love Cup O Golds. I don't think I've ever had one.
Big Hunks were good. I did like the Look Bars better because they were the same thing only covered in chocolate.
Oh the joys of remembering going with my dime, or when really lucky, a quarter, and coming home with a bag full of penny candy.
What kind of candy did you enjoy as a kid? What about now?
