Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
As a child, in the Fifties, I used to ride the New Haven Railroad with my mother into New York City. On the way back from New York, if you were seated on the left side of the train, you passed a Life Saver factory. On the outside of the factory, were huge representations of packages of Life Savers.
The ones that I remember on the side of the building, were the packages with the five flavors and Pep-O-Mint, and I think Cryst-O-Mint. I believe they were lit up at night. It was very exciting to pass a place where candy was being made all day! My favorite flavors were Choc-O-Mint and Stik-O-Pep. The latter was a reminder of Christmas all year round! ~ Wendy from Florida
