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

When I was growing up, I could always look forward to getting a Life Saver 'book' in my Christmas stocking. I loved going through my stocking on Christmas morning and finding the Life Savers. I liked them because they were something that would last for weeks after Christmas. My favorite flavors were Pep-o-mint, Butter Rum, and Wild Cherry. I liked the assorted flavors, but my older sister would always look to see what Life Saver was coming up next and ask for that one. I felt torn between being nice to my sister and being selfish. Some days she got the one she wanted and some days she didnít.
One time I asked a friend of mine to give me her red panty hose after she got a run in them. Before Christmas, I crammed the panty hose full of goodies. Then I put them under the tree for my mom on Christmas morning. It was the only time I know that my mom got a stocking on Christmas morning. I made sure there was a book of Life Savers in her stocking. And I learned just how much panty hose can stretch! Mom got several years worth of stocking stuffers that Christmas. ~ Brian from California
