Slopokes (slow pokes sp?). But I also liked Bonomo's Turkish Taffy for which we got free coupons at the weekly Duncan Yo-Yo contests.

You can get the same kind of "Turkish Taffy" at the Old Time Candy Co. They call it French Chew Taffy. Ordered a case of the stuff in vanilla once.
And, yeah, frozen then smashed!

But look how much you get! Black licorice is $59, but you get SIX POUNDS of it.

What would I ever do with six pounds of black licorice?

This thread brought back another pleasant childhood memory. Back in the 60's there was a variety store in our neighbourhood that gave away penny candy to gradeschool kids on the last day of school for every "A" you got on your report card. 5 "A"'s got you a popsicle (remember when they were a nickle).

The variety store is still there although I'm sure the owners have changed many times over. Everytime I drive by I get the warm fuzzies.

And yes, I got my fair share of "A"'s and candy.

Cracker Barrel has a lot of the older candies. At least the one here in Janesville, WI does.

Black licorice. Or if we couldn't get it, then black jelly beans.

Today it's frozen-solid Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips.

Dang. Time for a snack break. I'll be back.

Abba-Zaba bars--but I haven't seen them since I moved from California.

Also, anything that was good "bang for the buck" at the 7-11. Usually some sort of giant wad of cheap gum for 15 cents. Even as a tyke I was a value investor.

Special treat: Dad would bring home a box of Sees milk patties. They didn't last long in our house. (Now Berkshire Hathaway owns Sees Candies. They are still my favorite high-end candy)
