Remembering Candy From the 70’s and 80’s
When Ted and I were talking on the air this morning about our favorite Halloween candy, it led right to the question, “What ever happened to candy from our childhood?" Here are some that we could think of: Bubble Gum Cigarettes and Cigars, Candy Cigarettes, Good n’ Plenty, Freshen Up Gum, Giant Smarties, Hot Tamales, Jolly Rancher Sticks, Laffy Taffy, Licorice Pipes, Pixy Sticks, Pop Rocks, Sugar Daddy Pops, Sweetarts, Wax Lips, Atomic Fireballs, Bazooka bubble gum, Candy Necklaces, Jaw Breakers, Necco Assorted Wafers, Now & Laters., Bottle Caps, Charms Blow Pops, Fruit Stripe Gum, Fun Dip, Gobstoppers, Jolly Rancher Sticks, Nerds, Atomic Fireballs, Candy Necklaces, Bit O Honey, Jawbreakers, Tootsie Pops, and Lemonheads? Brings back the sweet tooth memories doesn’t it? There wasn’t a candy I didn’t meet as a kid that I did not like, but I did love Charms Blow Pops since they lasted a long time and you got the very sweet gum after getting through the lollipop but I also loved Tootsie Pops because the commercial was so great.
