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

When I was in junior high in the 80's, I used to buy Giant Sweet Tarts from the vending machine at school. They came in packs of three, pink, purple, and yellow. I would always save the pink one for a boy I had a crush on in my orchestra class. He played the cello, and had big brown eyes. I have to confess that I started giving him the pink ones because they were my least favorite. Still, it was a way to get him to talk to me.
My little romance went awry the day that I came into class and someone had written ____ loves ____ on all the music stands with purple nail polish. Of course everyone, including the teacher, assumed that I did it. He never called me his “Sweettart” again. ~ Pam from Florida
