I would have to say that my favorite childhood candy was the Mars Bar. Now... NOT the Mars bar they have out now, but the Mars Bar from the '70's. Think of an oversized 3 Musketeers Bar, but filled with a vanilla nougat, similar to the way it is now EXCEPT that all the almonds were whole, and rested onto of the candybar, much like an Almond Joy. (I didn't like almonds, so I use to just pick them off the top, and go to town!)

      I loved plain chocolate Hershey Bars. And they were only a nickel. Sigh!!!

        Has anyone mentioned Necco Assorted Wafers? It was one of my favorites! They still have them in some stores and I grab them when I can.

          Butch -
          when I was a young kid, I'd play "priest" and do mass. I'd always use Necco wafers as the eucharist.

          Never did I laugh so hard, when years later, I was in college and I handed my buddy a Necco wafer and he put it in his mouth and gave the sign of the cross.
          I looked at him a little funny, and he laughed "sorry, habit!"

          ~Scorereader

          PS I still love those little wafers. I like the chocolate ones best, but assorted is always OK in my book.

              Pearson's Seven-Up bar. A chocolate bar made up of seven little compartments, each with a different filling.

I had forgotten about bag-o-gold, lik-m-aid, and only recently found nik-l-nip (for 50 cents at dollar tree.) din't really seem quite right, but that's another story. Anyway, for those of you that were looking for sour candies, like the regal crown, I've found that the Altoids sour candy taste very similar to them. I had a car trip last week, and popped a piece of sour cherry gum, more to keep me awake than anything. All of a sudden, I was in junior high, worried about pimples, dancing with girls, and a lot of other things. Sells for about dollar and a half at Wal-mart. Well worth it.


                OOh, the altoids sour citrus are my favorites!--Even now,I am salivating thinking of when you first pop them in your mouth...
                I have had people spit them out after the intial shock!

                            Those were the days!

                                Let's see...favorite candies...

                                Reese's FastBreak
                                Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
                                Sour Patch
                                Warheads Hard Sour Candy
                                Warheads Spray Sour Candy
                                Too Tarts Blue Berry Spray Sour Candy
                                Reese's Pieces

                                I also need help in finding the name of a candy. I got it at a Suncoast one time and it was Japanese. It tasted like soda and it fizzed in your mouth when it touched your tounge. My dad said there is an American version of it but he cannot recall the name. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

                                  They were 25 cents (plus one cent for tax) when I started buying candy bars in the late 1970s. I guess they go for $1 now. Obviously, I have a lot more money today than I did in 1978, but I still feel like $1 is too much to pay for a candy bar.
