I was never that big on sweets as a kid but it I loved "Carambars". I brought some back from France and am trying to keep to one a day as they are a little addictive....

Ice Cubes chocolate candy. Even Dove doesn't come close to the chocolate flavor and the melt-in-your-mouth goodness. 7/11's around here in the 70s and 80s and up into the 90s use to sell them. No more, have to buy them online.

To me, there is NOTHING quite like an Ice Cube. Um, um, UM!

The old single wrap pink bubble gums that had cartoons were great (don't see them anymore).

The candy necklace (don't see that one anymore either).

The Lucky Strike candy cigarettes (reddish tips to look like they were lit). Packaged in a box similar to the actual cigarettes (I wonder who made those). I thought I was so cool holding the candy cigarette like I was actually smoking (how times have changed).

Milk Duds, Butterfingers, Big Hunk, Look Bars.

Candy bars were 6 for a quarter and that's all we needed to go to the store and freak out leaving with our individual treasures soon to share amongst us all.

Kudos granola bars, Now and Laters, atomic fireball candy, and those GIANT jawbreakers.
