Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was in my math class as a child, I was secretly eating a Laffy Taffy, while my teacher passed out an assignment. I glanced down in my lap to read the jokes and all I saw was the word "cloud" before looking up, afraid I was going to get caught. I started thinking of what you could joke about a cloud. Suddenly I thought of my own joke: "At Cloud School, what were the clouds graded on? Precipitation!"
That laffy taffy made me the most popular kid in elementary school. I told the joke to all of my friends and teachers and they all loved it! I heard kids telling their friends my joke, of course I told them that it was mine, but I was just so happy about how popular it was. At the end of the year, everyone who signed my yearbook had something to say about my joke. I was known as "The cloud girl" or The Laffy Taffy girl" throughout high school. I will never forget the joy that Strawberry Laffy Taffy gave me, and it was delicious too I might add! ~ Melissa from Georgia
