Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
I remember hanging out with my grandfather a lot when I was little girl. He used to always give me Horehound Drops. I remember all the great memories I had going to this really old store that my grandfather’s Army buddy owned. It was a little store that was part gas station and part store. My grandfather would give me a whole bag of Horehounds…all for me! That was such a treat for me, as Horehounds Drops were always my favorite.
I remember they used to always talk about old war stories, and fun times they had together. I watched them intently as they would pop a Horehound into their mouths as they kept talking, and other times as they helped customers pulling into the station by checking their cars and filling their gas tanks.
I always loved listening to them while eating a whole bag of horehound drops all by myself. Maybe that is one of the memories that impacted my life, to serve in the U.S. Army for 8 years. Either way, every time I see or hear about Horehound Drops, my mind floods back to those easier times and all the wonderful memories I had with my grandpa and his Army buddy. ~From Marlene in Texas
