What are some of your favorite candies from childhood?

So, last night we went to see Avatar. And being a mom i now make the family go to the stupormarket to buy their candy instead of buying it at the movie theater and paying $50 for some candy bars.

Anyway, i indulged in what may be my all time favorite candy from childhood.... Bit 'o Honey. I hadn't had this in a million or so years..and wow. Did i enjoy it!

The taste brought me back to childhood and it reminded me of some other candies that i use to love.... like Turkish Taffy and Sugar Daddys.

What are some of the candies you loved as a child yet haven't indulged in lately?

I used to like Dots and Chuckles. Both would pull out fillings now so I don't have them.

When I go to the movies, it's red Twizzlers and Junior Mints.

As a kid, I loved Mallo Cups. Still do.

Bonz, thats a gorgeous picture of you!!!
Red twizzlers weren't a childhood fav of mine, but they are an adult fav of mine now. I love that they have no fat in them. Never mind the sugar, but the no fat makes me do the snoopy dance!

I can't think of Junior Mints without thinking of Kramer....

Grape Nerds. Loved them then and love them now.

I also loved candy cigarettes and those little wax bottles with the juice in them. Actually those wax bottles were loads of fun. I used to mash them together and make stuff out of them once I had slurped all the sugar water out. My Smurfs and GI Joes had plenty of props to play with after getting a packet of those.

Re: What are some of your favorite candies from childhood?

Many of the lollies (candy) we have in Australia - and NZ and Britain - have different names from what they are called in the USA so I have included photos of the lollies I like. I would be interested if Americans can still what they are called there.

I liked Fruit Tingles, Jubes, Freckles, Jaffas, Smarties and Acid Drops.

Smarties in the USA are totally different. Your Smarties look more like what we call Spree.

Those wonderful square lollipops from See's. We used to get them in our stockings every Christmas.

Goldenberg's Peanut Chews. God I love those things.

And this is a weird one. My friends and I used to buy those little boxes of Ludens cherry flavored chewy cough lozenges. Not supposed to be candy, but they tasted like it! A box of Ludens and a little styrofoam airplane from the corner pharmacy...good times.

They're actually more like M&Ms. But not as good. Weird hard candy covering.
