In all my 54 years, my favorite candy has always been the large gum drops. There were six siblings in my family so Mom used to buy everything in quantity. We used to gather us all together and go to the drive-in movie shows.
We had a big station wagon and we always took our own candy and popcorn. I had to fight with my brothers and sisters to get my favorite pieces of Gum Drops.
I loved the black ones that taste like licorice and the red for their cherry flavor. But I wasn't the only one who liked the black gum drops. So every time we got some, it was like a war. Every time I see Gum Drops, I think of those days. And, I still eat them! ~ Connie from Iowa
