Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
I have a unique memory of caramel cow tails from when I was a child. It is a bit ridiculous, but I was a bit gullible. My grandpa told me about a delicious candy called cow tails. We lived on a farm so I thought we had plenty of those. I asked my grandpa if I could have one. He told me to go and get one for myself. He said those cow's tails had a fine, yummy powder on them. I thought I would go try it. I went out to one of our cows and tried licking the powder off it's tai! After all we did get the milk from those cows!
Well I must have frightened that cow when I pulled on her tail because she kicked me right in the eye. I was a pitiful sight. My grandpa and my parents felt really sorry for me because it was their fault for telling me that. They had no idea I would be dumb enough to believe it even though I was only five years old. So, they gave me a real caramel cow tail! I have always loved them. It made me feel better at a time when I thought I was really stupid for believing such a thing existed. I can't find them in any store now days. ~ Becky from Texas
