Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
As a teenager in 1965, we hung out at the local Hot Shoppes (like a Denny's). We didn't have too much in the way of disposable income. So from time to time, when we wanted to hang out but were broke, we would sit at the counter and order a glass of water. Plop! In would go the Fizzies. We would peruse the menu for the hour or two, maybe ordering a "gravy train" (french fries covered in dark gravy with lots o' pepper) just to keep the waitress happy. Those were the days. But come to think of it, now that Fizzies are again available, maybe they're not gone yet! ~ Ira from New Mexico
