Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
Back in the early 60's when I was very young, there was a Cincinnati-based children's program called "The Uncle Al Show." Many times when children lost a game to their peers who were awarded with nice prizes, Uncle Al would stick a Marshmallow Cone into the mouths of the "defeated" child to take back with them to their seats in the "grandstand." It made them feel that they walked away winning something and perhaps it also kept them from bawling/making a scene since their mouths were stuffed full! ~ Rose from Ohio.
When I was in grade school in the mid to late 60's in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, I can remember buying Marshmallow Cones from the Nuns at my grade school (Epiphany) for a penny a piece. All the kids in the class would bring their pennies to school. I would buy as many as the Nun would allow me. Over the years I would think of these candies and tell stories to others reminiscing about them. What a nice surprise to see they are still available. You made my day! Thanks! ~ Randy from Arizona
