Screaming Yellow Zonkers, and Marathon bars. They don't make Marathon bar anymore, sadly! Someone said they make Screaming Yellow Zonkers again? Must stock up!! lol

Rock candy

Oh, yes! Grew up in Southern CA, and I remember on our trips to Disneyland, we would go to the Candy Store on Main St. and get clear plastic boxes of rock candy, in all colors. They only make it in clear/white now!

Anybody remember Walnutto's at least I think that was the name. It was a little chewy thing with nuts in it, and the wrapper had a squirrel on it. Me and Dad used to fight over them!!!! I also liked those little beaded candies on an elastic string, you wore it around your neck and could munch on it when you wanted to. When you would get all sweaty playing outside, they would turn your neck all different colors and stain the neckline of your shirts - Mom had a fit but she always let me get them. I saw them around Halloween at a gas station a few years ago and for about 30 seconds I was 8 years old all over again....sigh......
