Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. My parents are from Marshall County in Northeast Kansas. Often, in the 1950's, we spent weekends with my Grandparents on a farm near Axtell, Kansas. My Grandpa and Grandma "Sam" attended Salem Lutheran Church. Although out in the country, it was a large brick structure with many beautiful stained glass windows. Salem Lutheran Church set on a hill overlooking farm land and gently rolling plains.
When I attended church with them, I received Sen-Sen as a treat (and sometimes as a bribe to be still and pay attention to the service). They were always smartly dressed. My Grandma always had a pack of Sen-Sen in her "pocketbook" and my Grandpa had one in the breast pocket of his Sunday suit. I developed a taste for Sen-Sen and licorice and have enjoyed it ever since, thanks to my Grandpa and Grandma! ~ Tim from Kansas
