What I Love. Part 2

There used to be a candy store in town that sold 100's of the type of candy we had as kids. It was expensive, but worth it just to hear everyone's stories of how much a nickel got you.
Do you remember-wafer spaceships with the colored candy inside, bottle caps, 'black' babies, black balls, 'koo-koo', fudge cars, red wax hot lips, cinnamon toothpicks, black licorice cigars, Swedish berries, Popeye cigarettes, jawbreakers, malt balls, spearmint leaves, string licorice in green, red, and purple. We'd eat so much we'd be sick, and if your father sent you for his smokes he'd give you enough to buy a drumstick.
Aah, life as a kid had it's good points

Your list doesn't include Double-Bubble bubble gum.
.. a unique taste that is identifiable 60 years later.

Double bubble is the bubble gum of last resort. Bazooka bubble gum is the best, BY FAR.

BubbleYum was originally reglar ol' pink gum, it was just softer. The flavors followed shortly after.

I think.

Charleston Chew?


ETA: I remember getting a Sugar Daddy in the bag at Halloween. I thought I'd hit the motherlode, it was so much bigger than anything else in the bag.

The Sugar Daddy was drool city. And not so healthy or good for your teeth. But you can't complain about false advertising.
