sugar, sugar

Katie & I were just discussing candy from our youth.
We came up with a good list of tasty treats..got any to add??? what did you pine for? of course, you had favorite flavors or colors...I know you did!

jolly rancher sticks - after a while, it became mold-able (sour apple was my favorite)
pop rocks
laffy taffy, complete with jokes!
mega warheads...who could keep it in their mouth the longest
atomic bombs
lik'm aid - 3 flavors of dipping fun!
runts - i ate them in order, bananas (least favorite flavor), oranges, limes, then an alternation between pink hearts and red apples
caramelo - because it was fun to suck out the carmel
GIANT jawbreakers

well, I'm a busy girl, so I've run out of time to write further about this. Perhaps I'll pick it up again in the future. I would LOVE to hear about your favorite childhood sweets and flavors!

I ate runts the exact same way.

Along with all those I loved Charleston Chews, those dot candies on the strip of paper (name?), Pixie Stix, Bit-O-Honeys, Ring Pops, Sixlets, Bazooka, Big League Chew, Bubble Tape, Bottle Caps, Fruit Stripe Gum, Mambas, Now n' Laters, and Whatchamacallits.

Holy crap. I love candy.
