Charms candy suckers were the very best treat to purchase when I went to the Saturday afternoon movies as a child of the 1950's; movie admission was 10 cents, and the suckers only cost 5 cents! Grape was my favorite flavor, and if I licked it slowly, it would last the whole movie! Sometimes I would decide beforehand that I was going to choose something different, like popcorn, but when I got to the counter and saw those huge suckers, I just had to have one!

As a boy, my best friend and I used our paperboy earnings to visit the local drugstore. We spent a lot of time looking at all the different candies and always came away with at least one Charms sucker, preferably cherry (along with the 10 cent comics and 25 cent balsa gliders). We'd dip the suckers in a glass of water before putting them in our mouth to make them taste better. At least it seemed to us that they tasted better after that water dip! Bill from Virginia

Some flavors have the oldtime taste and others don't. The grape is OK, but cherry is not good at all.
