When I was a kid my least favorite was candy cigarettes. They had the taste and consistency of sweetened chalk. Hard to imagine giving out candy cigarettes to kids these days.

The best -then as now - Snickers. Tho now I am forbidden to partake (diverticulosis).

They still have candy cigarettes, but now they call them candy sticks and they still taste like chalk.

I still like "Circus Peanuts" - sort of stiff marshmallow, light orange, peanut shaped candy. Does anyone else remember those? They taste fruity, a little like bananas.

Yeah, I remember those.
They could break a tooth when they went stale.

I've always liked candy corn, and now there's chocolate candy corn. After I ate a bag or so I didn't feel so good.

I still love candy cigarettes. I've got some in the glove box of the car. Setanta was quite puzzled to discover them in there.

I bought some 'day after sale' Halloween candy on my way home from the dentist today Embarrassed I can hardly wait to have some. I shoulda had some nice soft Halloween candy on Saturday night, instead of the corn nuts I broke my tooth on Sad

I remember those candy cigarettes too. They were so cool. I remember me and my fellow 8 to 12 year-old friends using them to pretend to be cool adults smoking...

And now I'm addicted to real cigarettes. I wonder if I can sue the candy cigarette people?

So, I pilfered the left over halloween candy at my sister's house. But, before I did I asked my niece if I could have some of hers. Guess which candy she pulled out of her bag for me to have? That weird chewy brown taffy stuff. No thanks!

I'm eating my daughters Halloween candies as we speak,
luckily no candy corn in it, as I don't like it.

Actually, I aquired a taste for butterfingers.


I think I'm going to be constipated for weeks on end *sigh*

What chewy brown taffy stuff? I don't remember any chewy brown taffy stuff. Is it like a long stick, or a little bite-size thing?
