Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
Back to the days when I was young and rode a long way on the school bus and was dropped off just long enough to go to the forbidden variety store across the road-which of course we crossed and bought whatever we could for five cents. Penny candy would not work in class.- ah! but cough drops would.
So many of us would buy them and when the teacher caught us sucking on what she thought was candy we could smugly say "but it's not candy' it's a cough drop. "Well" she would say "then that alright, I hope you feel better and it's nice not to cough in my class." Too bad-too many of us tried it and being a teacher she caught on quick-no more Smith Brothers in class, but I sure did like the taste! ~ Donna from North Carolina
