Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
When I was a little girl, I remember my Grandfather taking me to the candy shop down the road. Most of the time we got a bagful of penny candies and we both picked them out... my Grandpa just loved his candies!
One day he decided that he would like to try something different and he picked up a roll of Spree. I picked out my usual penny candy fare. We got back to the house and spread out our goodies. My Grandpa put his roll of Spree on the table. They were so bright and shiny that I just had to open them!
We tried them together and they were so different than the usual stuff we picked out... they were definitely a kick in the mouth! I was even more enamored with them when I saw the color of my Grandpa's tongue as he laughed! Bright orange! To this day when I eat Spree, I think of my Grandfather and that makes the candy that much better for me. ~ Jennifer from Oregon
