Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
My favorite candy when I was a child was called Lik-m-Aid Fun Dip. I was in the hospital a lot as a child for a lung condition called Cystic Fibrosis. My grandmother would come to visit and take me down stairs to the gift shop to pick out some candy to cheer me up. I always went straight for the Lik-m-Aid Fun Dip.
I would pick out as many packs of the yummy sugary powder and crunchy sugar sticks as my little hands could hold. The cashier would stuff them in a little blue plastic bag and my grandma would take me up to my hospital room and watch in delight as I ate the sugary sweetness.
That candy put a smile on my face even when I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. To this day I am still tempted by the Lik-m-Aid candy at the check out counters at the grocery store and the gas station. The candy makes me think of the good times with my grandma when she would come to cheer me up. ~ Jeannine from Tennessee
