Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was about 5 yrs old my brother-in-law would make my brother, my sister next to me, and me a special Christmas present. Dale would build something very unique and he would give us written instructions on how to open it. Dale was very inventive and it could take up to an hour for us to complete the task. Once we opened the present Ice Cubes would come tumbling out. Dale would make these special gifts always with the Ice Cubes in it for three more years, and we never tired of it nor the candy. He also would blow up balloons and put change in it and ice cubes, then wrap it up and give it to us. It was always our favorite candy.
Years later my family and I were visiting in South Carolina in November 1992 and I found ice cubes in an old time store. I bought them for my three sons for their Christmas stocking. I have not seen them in any store since. Then my 21 year old, who is in the Air Force in England ask for them for Christmas last year. I really did not think about searching the internet for them. I called all around town and surrounding areas but could not find them, and now that I have, I can not take the chance of ordering them and have them be one melting blob. So I guess he will have to wait until it gets a little cooler, maybe next Christmas! It is funny how even small traditions become important to each generation. ~ Terrie from Florida
