Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
This story dates back to the middle 50's. We lived in a small town in New Jersey then. Now, contrary to what you might think, New Jersey had plenty of cow boys back then. I should know, because I was one of them. I used to ride with Roy Rogers and Hop Along Cassidy. My gang and I were always looking for the bad guys.
Not far from the ranch (home), was this "May Lees" General store (the local candy store). It seemed that when ever we went out for a "ride" we would always end up at "May Lees". After all that hard riding we would mosey up to the counter and order a "drink" and some "chewing tobacco". May Lee would get us a cherry soda pop and a box of Walnettos, for a total sum 20 cents each. After we drank the soda pop, we would put two Walnettos into our mouths at once and "chew" Every now and then we would "spit" the "tobacco juice". I still remember the enjoyment and fun I had eating Walnettos. ~ John from Kentucky
