Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was a child I had a never ending sweet tooth, my weakness being chocolate. My mother always joked that I had a hollow leg. Every time she would make me chocolate chip cookies I would end up in time out for swiping the chocolate chips.
One day mom came home from the grocery store and started putting away stuff when I spotted a bag of, what I thought at the time were chocolate chips. The bag looked different so I asked her what they were. She explained to me that she had a solution to my cravings. She opened the bag and unwrapped the biggest chocolate chip I had ever seen! She told me they were Hershey's Kisses and gave me one-I was hooked. I had never tasted such a creamy chocolate treat in my short life.
After that day I would go to her when my sweet tooth would kick in and tell her I would trade her some kisses for some Kisses, Hersheys Kisses of course. I go visit her and to this day say to her "hey mom trade ya some kisses for some Kisses" and she always makes the trade. Thank you for a wonderful site and a wonderful way to share my favorite memory. ~ Ashley from Missouri
