Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was a little girl, my grandmother (now deceased) used to let my sister and I load as many coke bottles as we could into a red wagon, which we pulled to the corner drugstore to buy penny candy. I always got as many strips of Candy Buttons as I could! I loved to bite the colorful buttons off the paper and I still do!
I recently discovered a local store that sells them, so I'll buy a package and hide them from my daughter! Mine, mine, mine! Not only do they still taste good to me, they also bring back a wonderful memory of my grandmother laughing happily while my sister and I carefully piled those coke bottles as high as we could into the little wagon, so we could redeem them for candy money! ~ Debbie from Florida
