Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was young, my mother and I spent our days at home. After lunch we would always have a treat. Mom bought lollipops for me and she would have a Cherry Mash. I asked her one day if I could have one of her candy bars and she explained that Cherry Mash were kind of an adult candy and I wouldn't like it.
About that time my baby brother woke up from his nap and mom got up to get him. I looked over at her candy and the temptation was just too great. When she came back and sat down, she reached for her candy and all that was left was the wrapper. I was afraid she was going to be mad and quickly said I was sorry.
To my amazement she just looked at me and smiled and said " sweety, there's no need to be sorry, I was the one who thought you wouldn't like it, but from now on we will both have Cherry Mash!" To this day when I go visit my mother I always stop by the store and buy two Cherry Mash and we sit and enjoy them and laugh about the day that my adult taste buds kicked in. ~ Melissa from Missouri
