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

Every time I think of salt water taffy I immediately get sent back to my childhood spent in Ocean City Maryland. Our family would pack up the car, and drive the hours long trip just to be near the beautiful ocean and hot sand. My sister and I looked forward to the vacation and all the treats me would get to eat each year.
Salt Water Taffy reminds me of making sandcastles, and long walks on the boardwalk, getting my pictures taken in old fashioned photo booths, and most of all of the little candy stores places every so often down the long Maryland boardwalk. I'd walk to the candy store, with flip flops on my feet to protect me from the hot wood. I'd buy salt water taffy by the bagfuls, trade flavors with my sister and all the little friends I would meet by the shore. I still think of this whenever I eat this treat, and love it the same to this very day. ~ Amber-Lynn from Michigan
