Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was about 7 my father worked as an engineer for a plastics company. On rare occasion we would be allowed to go to his work and visit for some reason or another. I looked forward to these trips because at the front desk was a jar of sour balls. I would spend the bulk of the time on the trip to his office trying to decide what flavor I wanted to enjoy this time or if I might be lucky enough to be offered two which two flavors would give me the most satisfaction.
After awhile the woman working at the front desk left the company and so the sour balls stopped, much to my dismay. But I never stopped looking for them in every office or candy store I would visit. The only other time I found them was a huge jar at a festival. If you guessed how much candy was in the jar you won all the candy in it. I took a solid 20 minutes trying to figure out what my guess would be. After that I never did find them again until I stumbled upon them at oldtimecandy.com! Thank you for bringing back those childhood memories! ~ Lon from Washington
