Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
My family always did a lot of cook outs when I was little and the one thing I could not stand to eat was baked beans. What repulsed me even more was the fact that my big sister always asked for them as a treat! Every time my mom would go to the store my sister would ask her to get some Boston Baked Beans and then she would gobble them up. I was beyond shocked that anyone would want to eat beans out of a little box.
One day I discussed my repulsion with my mother and she just busted out laughing. Now, not only was I sickened, but upset that my mom was laughing at me. Finally, when she caught her breath, she told me that Boston Baked Beans were a yummy candy and they were not actually beans. The next time she went to the store she bought me some. Of course I was a little hesitant, but I tried them and I loved them. They are my favorite candy to this very day. ~ Marjorie from Missouri
