Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
I loved Boston Baked Beans as a child! My parents would often take me and my brother to the mom and pop stores so that we could spend a dollar or two on penny candy. Boston Baked Beans were almost always purchased for just a dime a box (those were the days)!
I used to pour the contents of the whole box into my mouth and dissolve the sugary sweet coating a little bit before crunching down on the remaining coating and peanuts. No wonder I was at the dentist so much, lol!!After finishing the candy, we would put the box in our mouths and use it as a whistle. I remember the "Just Say No To Drugs" message that would often be printed on the inside of the box on the flap.
They still sell Boston Baked Beans here at a local dollar store. They are in a big plastic bag instead of the little cute boxes. It just isn't the same. ~ Nikisha from Pennsylvania
