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

I always associate Licorice Pipes with the Old West. Why? I could only find this candy when we went to places like Frontier Land at Disneyland or when we visited old west ghost towns like Calico, or Virginia City.
My dad always loved licorice and so I reasoned that by getting a Licorice Pipe I could pretend to be an adult yet live in a sweet, kid's world of cowboy fantasy. I'd buy the black Licorice Pipe and make it last as long as I could. I'd bite a bit off then pretend I had a chew of tobacco in my mouth. Anything to be a grown-up cowboy. ~ Steve from California
I was five years younger than my brother. Really missed him when he was at school and I was still little, probably about 4. He would stop at the candy store on the corner on the way home and bring me a licorice pipe. I haven't seen them in so many years! Brought back many found memories of my brother. We grew up in NYC many years ago. ~Linda from Texas
