I'd eat so many Sweet-Tarts that my mouth would get sore!....

That's a tough one. I have found a couple stores lately that have a lot of the old sweets available again and I do everything in my power to avoid them... (not always successfully)....

Neccos, Orange Circus Peanuts, Charleston chew, Blackjack chewing gum, Red Hots, and a bunch more taunt me as I stand at the counters .....

As kids we didn't really get much of that kind of stuff, being poor farm kids... but once in a great while we would have a frozen Snickers bar, or a Tootsie Roll pop, or Ice cream- but the best was still mom's baked goods...

Great memories.....

Bob

I've probably eaten a nail keg of those things [sweet tarts] in my time.

Don't do any candy, cookies, pies, cakes, anything w/sugar and try to avoid stuff w/flour in it, these days, tho the latter is a lot easier said than done.

Bride loves those chocolate covered candied cherries & chocolate turtles. A box will find its way to her for Valentine's. And I recently bought her a large quantity of small shelled peanuts for her to make peanut brittle which she also enjoys, but she hasn't gotten around to making it yet.

I used to like those round, red peanut dealies that were mostly sugar & peanuts. I still eat peanuts and so will Jack. I shell them for both of us.. in small quantities.

Original Pearson Nut Goodies. Used to have a stiff backing under the round bar but same color wrapper as now. Chocolate w nuts and soft center. Bought them for 10 cents in the '50's. They were bigger then, too.

Candy

Horehound drops for me . I still love them . Some life changing events have lowered my ability to partake in as many as I would love to

Not necessarily in this order... Jolly Rancher Cinnamon Stix, See's Butterscotch Candies, Whoppers, and strangely.. Luden's Menthol Cough Drops. Oh, and Chick O' Sticks.

Back in the early 80's I was living on the west side of Chicago listening to the Bob and Tom show on WLS and driving the 294 expressway with the tollbooths that took quarters in the baskets. Old Bob and Tom announced chocolate necco wafers worked in place of quarters in the toll baskets. Only chocolate would work. You guessed it, that day there was a run on necco wafers and the following day it rained hard most of the day. By the afternoon rush hour many of the automated toll collectors were out of service being all gummed up from the necco wafers. To this day anytime I see or hear mention of necco wafers I chuckle.

the bait shack was the closest place to get candy, and I was very frugal with necessity, so I bought the Jolly Rancher sticks. Five cents each, so I bought 5for a quarter and was a happy little fisherman.

IIRC they did get in a bit of warm water over it but used the defense of the fact they were a comedy morning show and probably gained more popularity because of it.
