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

Somehow, Sky Bars had been completely erased from my memory banks until a recent vacation trip found me lured to a shop that specializes in old-time candies. I was wandering around the shop displays, reminiscing about Chuckles and Chunky and Dots, when my gaze fell on a box of Sky Bars. The yellow package! The red lettering! The four chocolate segments pictured on the wrapper! The images jarred long-lost memories and suddenly they all came flooding back.
How could I have forgotten going to the candy store as a young boy in New York and buying Sky Bars? How could I have forgotten the four segments, each with a different flavored filling? How could I have forgotten breaking the segments apart and eating them in ascending order of desirability, from least-favorite peanut to most-coveted fudge? Just seeing the packages started me on a wonderful boyhood trip down memory lane, a trip that became even more poignant when I bought a bar and munched my way back to my childhood. ~ Ken from Florida
