I used to love Haribo's gummy candies (happy cola, gators, bears, strawberries, etc...).

As a kid (and I'm still just a big kid at heart!) I had a sweet tooth, and liked just about every kind of candy.....as long as it wasn't butterscotch, or coconut, or maple flavored...Yuck!

Especially liked Ju Ju Bees and Junior Mints at the movies! Besides them I liked Pixie Sticks, Smarties (I still eat a lot of Smarties!), Licorice Snaps, Good & Plenty, and almost everything chocolate!

My tastes haven't changed much at all over all these years!

In the summers I spent 1/2 of my allowance on a red popsicle and then spent the other 1/2 a few days later on another red popsicle. That was 10 cents a week, no tax.

Nobody has mentioned Jawbreakers! Remember them? Huge spherical hard candies that change colors numerous times as you suck on them. They weren't available everywhere, but the museum sold them in their little shop and I used to get one when we went there. The anticipation and excitement at what the next color could be was the attraction, I suppose

Bonomo's Turkish Taffy
Good 'n Plenty

But the best of all...(drum roll, please...) White chocolate from Gardner's Candy store in Tyrone, PA! A rare and expensive treat. It was one of those original candy stores that sold nothing but candy. Evidently they did it right, their web page says they have 16 stores now.

Never heard of lick-m-aid; was this a regional candy?

Anyone ever eat "sen sen", given to me by my Dad, who used to chew lots of tobacco and snuff: Sen Sen - Candy you ate as a kidŽ

DH still likes these and gets them at the local mini-mart. Personally I think they may be made from urinal cakes.
