Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid" story? Share it here.

Back in 1963 in Los Angeles, California, I spent the first few weeks at Emerson Junior High assessing the social order and my place within it, so it took me a while to notice that everyday at lunch and after school there was a line of kids standing in front of small booth at the other side of the lunch area. With my curiosity finally piqued, I walked quickly by and peeked through the window. There sat an attendant scooping popcorn from a large popcorn machine into a small red and white bag, while next to her was displayed an impressive selection of candy bars. I couldn’t believe my eyes: there was a place AT SCHOOL where I could buy candy all by myself, and my mother would never know about it.

The snack bar had an alluring array of candy bars, many of which were regional specialties (Cup-O-Gold, Mountain Bar, Rocky Road) that I’d never tried before. I decided to try the Cup-O-Gold first because it was a complete mystery. The brown wrapper had only that wonderful name printed on it, with no clues whatsoever about the kind of candy it contained. When I sat on the bleachers in the late afternoon sun and slowly peeled off the wrapping, I discovered a milk chocolate cup similar in shape to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, although the chocolate was lumpy, rather than smooth. Cautiously, I took a small nibble from the outer edge—aah, that was coconut embedded in the thick chocolate—so far, so good. Then I took a bigger bite, and felt my teeth sink into a soft, gooey center. Marshmallow cream! It was sweet and smooth, and, yes, it really worked with the dense, coconut-packed milk chocolate. At that moment, I couldn’t imagine anything more satisfying—it was sweet and filling, soothing and comforting. ~ Nina from California

Found at last
  I have been trying to find this candy bar for ages and couldn't look it up because I didn't remember the name of it. Today we were talking about candy no longer available and finally the name just came to me. I can't believe after so long I will have some soon. Old Time Candy has a new and regular customer provided they haven't changed to recipe.

Magical candy...
  Mmmmmm, the mixture of chocolate, almonds & a cocoanut cream center totally surprises you. I love Cup O Gold. I had one of these candies a long time ago, and scrambled like crazy to try to find them in any type of store near me, but there were none. Luckily Old Time exists! I also had to pick some up for a friend that I wanted to surprise... worked great. Buy em & try em.

Cup O Gold
  The CupOGold candies that I received from OTC were as delicious as the ones I used to buy 55 years ago while attending the "Saturday Matinee" at my local theater. The packaging was different, but the candy was just as tasty! OTC insured their arrival in perfect condition by including the gel packs at no charge! Thanks OTC!

Cup O Gold
  This candy was sent to California as a gift and to the surprise of my sister who had thought this candy was no longer available was soooo pleased. Thank you for keeping a family favorite around.

Taken back
  This was a birthday gift for a dear neighbor & great friend. She had mentioned this candy name one night in a conversation. She had searched high & low for this candy, but was unsucessful. I thought I would really surprise her with this birthday gift. She loved it!!! She had so much fun telling the group at her birthday party that this was from her childhood and it took her back to very fond memories. She enjoyed it as much as she had rememberd as a young girl.
