Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
Junior Mints are amazing. What could be better than chocolate and mint together? I loved them as a kid, and I still love savoring them at movie theaters. But they taught me a life lesson when I was very young - probably about 4 or 5.
I went to a local grocery store/gas station with my parents, and as the cashier was checking them out, I grabbed a box of Junior Mints. The cashier didn't see me, so I slipped out of the store with the goods. When my parents noticed I had candy, they smacked my bottom and made me go into the store, return the Junior Mints and apologize to the cashier. At the time I was embarrassed and humiliated (as much as a 4-year-old can be), but now I thank my parents for that. And I pay for all of my Junior Mints to this day. ~ Traci from Texas
