Now, to the guts of this thing.
I saw a kid playing with a package of Garbage Pail Kids today while eating a set of those candy wax lips that I used to think were God awful but people tried to convince me were a treat. For some reason this got me thinking about my favorite now-obscure treats as a kid and what I would like to pass down to any future children that I might have.
Here they are:
1) Warheads. These things, especially the black cherry ones, would make me pucker up quicker than a hooker with a fifty dollar bill in her face. Sour doesn't begin to describe it. You have to develop a tongue callous to really get a handle on this candy.
3) Fruit Slices. Pretty self-explanatory but here is a hint: Looks like fruit but aint.
5) Candy Cigarettes. I liked to have these I think because my Mom is an avid smoker. It made me feel grown up and cool. I was young enough that I would get a sugar high, but none of the cancer that went along with actual cigarettes. Win-Win!
