I don't eat much candy these days, but as a youngster, I ate quite a bit of the stuff. One of my favorites was Chuckles, the jelly candy that has 5 flavors in each package. Those things were tasty. When I went to movies in the early 80's, I was rarely without Junior Mints. In the mid 80's, my fave was Tart & Tinys (they were, indeed, quite tart). I remember the day I was introduced to candy cigarettes. My mom's sister offered me a pack at the Lake Winona park. I was thinking, "What the hell? Candy...cigarettes?" I looked at my mom and she said that it was OK for me to take them. Needless to say, I felt cool the rest of the day with those things hanging out of my mouth.
