A bit bored during a lull at work, I found a rather interesting site. It has all kinds of classic candies, all your old favorites you can't find anymore plus the more common stuff, categorized by what decade it came out in. I briefly thought about buying a couple of their assortments and selling the pieces singly - a scheme that worked far better than lemonade stands when I was a kid. But I realized there would be issues in stocking and logistics, and regretfully let the idea go. I've been a serious sugar addict - as a kid, I loved sour apple jolly ranchers, gummi fruits, Sour Patch Kids, Blue Razzberry Blo-Pops, chocolate of course, anything Tootsie-Roll - and those foamy circus peanuts - I loved it all. I have a special memory of going with a dollar to the corner store after church, buying a Mello Yello, as well as forty or fifty cents worth of sour patch kids and gummy fruits. I'd go up to the playhouse in the church play ground and eat them. Do you have a particular food or candy that always takes you back?
