I had forgotten all about Chuckles, even when Boida was talking about them, until i saw that picture. I loved Chuckles--i'd gladly have murdered for Chuckles. I'll bet i haven't though about them or even seen them in more than 40 years.
I thought I remembered seeing them at Walgreens. I googled chuckles wal and walmart autofilled. Apparently you can get them at Walmart in a tub. They don't show up in a search at walgreens.
Looks like you can buy them on Amazon, or a site called old time candy (and some others, those were the first 2 I noticed).
I think we should all chip in and buy Boida a case.
I no longer have a regular food ritual, but as a child I was fascinated by some colorful shrimp chips that came from our local chinese take-out place. They were deep fried, brightly colored rice chips that tasted like shrimp. I thought they were beautiful. No one else in my family seemed to care about them and I coveted them like Golem and his ring. I would be very stealth about sneaking out of our dining room with the white waxy bag and hiding them in my Barbie townhouse. Each day, before I brushed my teeth for bed, I would eat one or two. This would go on for a couple of weeks until that started to taste stale or I ran out. A few years ago, I found these chips in a Chinese grocery. They are just as pretty pre-fried as fried. I cooked them up and was overwhelmed by memories the moment I tasted them. It was like being 7 years old again. Now I'm going to go look for them on-line.
I love shrimp chips.
They're one of the things I don't love to prepare at home as you need really good ventilation to get the smell out of the house.
I love shrimp chips.
1. There ain't no Walmart's in NYC. I'm not going to Noo Joisey for a piece of candy.
2. The closest Walgreens is in midtown. I'm not gonna schlep miles for a piece of candy. I suspect that there are Chuckles somewhere in my neighborhood. I just don't know where.
3. Chai, thanks for the charitable thought. A CASE!!! Don't want a whole case. Want one steenkin' Chuckle (red). My teeth are already in enough of a mess.
Green Witch, I like those shrimp chips too. Never hoarded them, though. And there were no Barbie dolls when I was growing up. So I didn't have a Barbie dollhouse to stash anything in. I had my places though.
there's nothing but
walmarts in boofoo kansas.
I'll see if I can find some chuckles to ship with benjamin and the solomon seal.
youz got me curious now.
never hadda chuckle before...
We've all had a lowercase chuckle (even me). I want a capital Chuckle.
I searched wally's site.
not available in the midwest...
I'll keep looking.
Sundae! With my spoon, I dig a little hole at a side of the vanilla ice cream. The cherry on the top goes to the bottom. To soak in the chocolate syrup sliding at the sides of the sundae glass. While I finish off the ice cream, the cherry awaits in gooey chocolate splendor. Then I pop it.. Yummm!
Perfec squares, and deeply scored in case some slick talker conned you into sharing. As if!
I remember those - I liked them. Of course, I forget the name. The one I'm thinking of was square, in a foil wrapper.
Yes! Red and silver foil wrappers...a bargain at less than $1 and taste way expensive! Hard to find but I managed to make a concoction once that was pretty close.
Yep. Luckily I married a man who isn't crazy about chocolate (as if I'd share anyways).
A nickel? Did he say a nickel? Ah...the good old days!
I've looked in six different places. No Chuckles. What a woild.
Discovered another weirdness. Forgot all about it.
I found some Hostess cupcakes at the pharmacy. Hadn't had any in a long time. Bought a box.
Milk and cookie time.
I found myself peeling off the top icing and putting it aside. I ate the cupcake and then ate the icing separately. I did this for every cupcake without thinking about it. But it was essential. I couldn't bite into the cupcake until the icing was off.
Clearly a holdover from childhood.
Who knows what other weirdnesses lurk.
