Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
As a child, I walked slightly over a mile to middle school. Every day, my friend and I would walk to school with our heads down looking for loose change. Sure enough we'd almost always find a few pennies and stop at the penny candy store along the way and pick up some individual Licorice Laces for a penny apiece; even if it was just one.
And I could really make those things last, taking small bites and chewing and chewing. One lace would last at least the entire walk. To me, that's better than any short-lived chocolate bar. ~ Jerry from Pennsylvania
