Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"

Jolly Ranchers are a wonderful candy, and bring up many a fond memory every time I smell that wonderful scent they give off in an overly warm car. The first story I have relates more to learning violin than it does to Jolly Ranchers. I was using the Suzuki Method of learning an instrument, and was nearly through the first book, when I came upon a short piece called the Lucky Farmer. My dad loved Jolly Ranchers and decided that was a better name for the song than what they'd given it.
The second story is shorter. I was losing my baby teeth and, as everyone knows, was having a painful time of getting them out. I decided a change was in order. I figured that the painful part was all the wiggling and pulling it out sideways; if I could find something sticky to pull it out straight, then it would be a lot easier. The solution came to me while I was sucking on a Jolly Rancher in the car. When you bite a Jolly Rancher you've just put in your mouth, it sticks to your teeth pretty good. With this method I pulled out 7 teeth near painlessly. ~ Bevan from Minnesota
