Take a little trip back in time with just one small, waistline-friendly packet of candy.
Open a packet of Pop Rocks.
Yes, that cool, exploding, fizzy, fun treat from decades past.....you'll feel like a kid again.
What are YOUR favorite old-time candies? Penny dots, root-beer barrels, Necco wafers, Jujubes....reminisce with me about sweeter times, and your most enjoyable candy moments.
Mother always loved Necco wafers and maple nut goodies; grandmother loves lemon drops, and dad favors Snickers and Mr. Goodbar, chocaholic that he is.
I can't watch a movie without Junior Mints. And I've always loved Spree candies. I think it was that obsession with the color silver as a youngster. Remember the paper wrapping around Sprees was silver? And probably also why I was partial to Chunky. Yep, must have been that silver wrapper.
Although the black and red wrappers of Pop Rocks has contained great fun for me today!
Now if I could just find an arcade that has Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Caterpillar.....
