Do you have a favorite "candy you ate as a kid"
story? Share it here.
Ahhhh, wax bottles. For me the memory this candy conjures up is one of traveling to Look Out Mountain in Ky. We stopped at a truck stop and my mom got me a pack of the wax bottles and bottle cap candy. I had a preference for the bottle caps. So I ate them first. Afterwards I started on the wax bottles. After the first one I was hooked. I chewed and chewed for at least thirty minuets on the first bottle. I mistook the wax for chewing gum. I then proceeded to try to blow a bubble. That was amusing and somewhat funny as the gob of wax shot out of my mouth and landed on the dash.
Funny but looking back on it there was actually a learning curve with wax bottles. Until I found your site I had given up on finding wax bottles. Now I can shot larger gobs of wax on my wife’s SUV dash :) -just kidding.
Thank you so much for allowing all us to reflect and remember a time when money was measured in the amount of candy we could get. ~ James from Florida
