I remember growing up in Hartford, Connecticut in the early 1960's getting Chocolate babies at the Movie theatre every Saturday afternoon. Some of my friends liked to bite off the heads of the candy, and throw them in the theatre. Not me, I wanted to savor every last bite of that delicious chocolate !!!
My friend's Grandfather was a Sales Rep for a Candy Wholesaler, and every day after school we would all run over to Gary's House to see what his Grandfather had dropped off. I was lucky most of the time to find my Chocolate babies, waiting for me in his kitchen.
It is good to know that I can now order my favorites on-line... Ah, just remembering that chocolatey taste, brings back many good memories. ~ Ken from Florida
Every Sunday morning my father and I would walk to the corner drug store for the paper. We'd hook the dogs on their leashes and go, just my dad and me. It didn't take more than 5 or 10 minutes to get there, but it was special to me as a time to enjoy the quiet of the morning with my dad.
He always told me I could have one kind of candy as a treat - and I always chose Chocolate Babies. The flavor, the texture - they were so good! He'd pay for the paper, and we'd turn around and start back home - the dogs happy with their walk, my dad happy to look forward to an afternoon of quiet reading, and me happy with my treat. ~ Amy from New York
