A Phoenix Rises from the Ashes

Wine Candy! Jolly Rancher green apple is my all-time favorite!

Remember going to the penny candy lady? Wine candies, Now and Laters (that never made it to later), bubble gum, chews, Sugar Daddy's and pickles with a peppermint stick in the middle!

Memories of sticky fingers and sunny summer days of childhood just plastered a silly smile on my face…share some of your memories with me!

  1. not the pickle with the peppermint stick! *lol*

  2. We used to get Jolly Ranchers, Laffy Taffy and Atomic Fireballs from 7-11. But from the candy lady we got Now and Laters, Boston Baked Beans, Lemonheads, Alexander the Grape, etc. I remember Pixy Stix too.From the summer time though, I remember icebergs as well called them. There was one lady that put a lot of sugar in hers so there was a sweet syrupy film on top of frozen treat. You'd mostly likely end up with sticky fingers AND a stick face after eating one. Her icebergs where in great demand so many times she wouldn't have any when we went there; then we'd have to settle for the no-so-good ones from the lady across the street.

  3. OMG yes, we called them Snow Cones or Shaved Ice….mmmmm yummy memories!
