Default My Favorite Candy..Then & Now

Well, if you can't remember the "Then" that's okay....


Then...As a kid it was licorice pipes, black balls, candy cigarettes and flicks

(the pipes and the cigarettes are probably illegal now)....



Now... a Cadbury milk chocolate bar and licorice twists..

This may sound strange, but I didn't really like candy as a kid. I didn't like popcorn or peanut butter either. But I've grown up and come to understand the finer things in life. The only candy I can recall ever even appreciating was my mother's 'pull candy.' Homemade taffy. That stuff would burn the hell out of your hands when you first started pulling it.

I really didn't like chocolate cake either. Now about the only chocolate I care for is light chocolate. I do like German chocolate cake. But then that's light chocolate isn't it.

One of our clerks brought me an iced strawberry cupcake last week. It was to die for.

I like fruit flavors for cakes.

I didn't really like apples, oranges, or bananas. I like the luscious fruits like berries and melons. I can take a granny Smith apple with salt, though. Unless there are good green June apples are the fruit stand.

Like CuteNCuddly, White divinity candy:



Usually, in the past, we'd only get this at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but it's available in some groceries. Thirty calories per piece.
