Oh man I love Chik o Sticks! I also like Necco Wafers (especially the grayish/black ones), but always wondered what the weird, white powder stuff was...

I Luv Banana Bikes and Hot Tamales...you know, Saturday Afternoon Theater Candies from the 70's.

Nice Thread.

My mom always liked chick o stick, and she's in her 70's, so yeah...

My favorites are Butterfingers, Jolly Ranchers (only green apple and watermelon flavors), and Laffy Taffy (banana flavor only). I'm trying hard to stay away from sugar, so I think I'll quit reading this thread now - too tempting.

I still love candy cigarettes ... Can't help it. It's the only "smoking" habit I ever picked up. I also love Zotz. And I can't forget Pop Rocks.

As for old man candy ... I do like the classic horehound stuff.

Oh, and coffee candy ... I like that too.

Reese's peanut butter cups, M&M's both plain and peanut, But one thing I really like is those chocolate peanut butter oatmeal no bake cookies.

Those chick-o-sticks were about a foot long when I was a kid and you could buy them for 25 cents.

I like the no-bakes, but they lose their awesomeness when they set up and cool off. They are only really awesome for me when they are still spoonably gooey and warm. My mom used to add some coconut to ours.

Our local hardware store sells the old candy. Not the new fangled chick0sticks or anything like that. The rock candy. The little dime sticks of candy. Stuff like that. It all just variations on the theme of hard candy. Same stuff they've had in those old stores for as long as my grandpa could remember.

I like chickostick though. They are good. Anymore I am more of a chocolate, plain jane chocolate, kind of guy. I'd rather have fruit and cheese or something, honestly.

I'm guessing no one will know what this is, but before he passed away, my mom and my grandfather used to occasionally make popcorn candy at Christmas. And I'm not talking about caramel popcorn. This is something else.

check this joint out

www.sweetiescandy.com...

the store is called b a sweetie. one of the biggest candy stores in the states.
i go out there quite a bit. like the furry texan, i would rather have other things than candy most times but they have all the old school stuff out there.
anyone remember the old packs of gum, beemans and clove? they have those
i pick up a lot of candy critters out there as well.
salted crickets and such. i like to try and talk people into eating the stuff at work. lots of lolli type stuff with scorpions and crickets in it.
they also have atomic fireballs that are dusted with ghost pepper.
i pick those up too so i can rock people. my son took a couple packs to school last year and messed with people.

they also have all kinds of kick ass soda's..like the jones colas except hundreds of brands and flavors.

its a cool store

My wife has this pet dream in her head about opening a candy store here in town. I told her that our town doesn't quite have the purchasing volume to support a candy store, and that she'd need to diversity the product offering to be able to keep the doors open. But her inspiration:

www.fbgfudge.com...

A place in Fredericksburg that we go to when we drive through. Fredericksburg is a special place....every small Texas town boasts about wanting to be "the next Fredericksburg". I just don't know if its possible. Its just...unique in what it does. its basically a getaway community...hard to explain. But if you are ever anywhere in the Hill Country...you have to see Fredericksburg. And try Fredericksburg Fudge. Only disappointment: they use cheap, microwave bacon for their chocolate covered bacon. its preserved and lasts long in the display, so i get it. But still disappointing.

Even more off topic: The Rockbox Theater is a must see for anyone in the area. Those folks have enormous talent.

Not *quite* candy...

But I ordered a bunch of cereal marshmallows off the internet a while back, I think 10lbs.

See, I was never allowed to have Lucky Charms as a kid -- and the marshmallows were always the best part. Now that I'm an adult, if I want to have a bowl of just cereal marshmallows, I will!



*Edit, not my pic -- but they came in bags just like that.

The marshmallows were the only part of Lucky Charms that made the cereal worth eating. I was never allowed to have those kinds of cereals either because I'd just open the box, pick out a bunch of the marshmallows and then refuse to eat any of the rest.

Oh, and the toy. You can't forget that.

For me it's Zagnut bars! I'm not much of a candy eater but if I pass a Zagnut display, they've got me!
