I can’t believe I ate the whole thing!

GeneaBlogger’s from All My Branches Genealogy and Destination Austin Family have posted the candies that they ate as a kid. So I’m joining this week in the effort. My favorite candy to eat anyole time growing up was, well, Bazooka bubble gum. You could get over 100 pieces for a dollar at the corner store and you got a free comic with each piece. It was the best bargain for your buck. I used to pitch in with the neighbor kid and find nickels, pennies and dimes so that he could cross the street and buy the candy as I wasn’t allowed over there. I was still in Kindergarten and he was a great big first grader. The best candy at Halloween was always Tootsie rolls and M&M’s. My grandmother loved black licorice so I gave her all of mine from Trick or Treating. She said she liked it. My least favorite candies to get at Halloween were Good and Pleanty’s. These days I will by-pass the candy for coffee au lait and a do-nut or a cookie. And if there is a box of do-nut holes just left laying around the house . . . they usually are not there for very long!
