Inthesierras! Moonpies still rock! Had one this morning. I also loved Zero candy bars as a kid and still like them.

my mom used to make a homemade candy that I just loved. Seems like she used Karo syrup. I wish I had the recipe.
other than that, I'd say a snickers bar.

Hostess pies. Lemon or apple. Most assuredly NOT, NOT, NOT the same. The lemon used to be a lemon cream and the apple used to have big slices or apple, not booger sized bits suspended in brown goo.

I remember those pies and the earlier version (at least on the east coast) table talk pies, little round pie pans, not the folded fried pie shape. Yes they were better than what you get at the convenience gas station store today!!!!

Old McDonalds cherry pies. They were fried I think nothing like they are now.
Bottlecaps, Sugar daddys, tootsie rolls.

Penny candy (that really cost just a penny) were the dots on a paper, root beer barrels (they still taste pretty good) and squirrels...a molasses flavored candy in a paper that you could never really get all off the candy, and wax lips and the politically incorrect: pink tipped sugar cigarettes LOL
Oh I loved wax lips, I still do!!!!However< I cant seem to find them anymore>

We lived on a farm and grew our own popcorn. When we came home from school, we would take the dried corn off the cob and pop it in homemade butter. I have never seen any popcorn from a grocery store pop up this big. And the flavor was so fresh and much more flavorful than grocery store popcorn.

Mom once made a mistake when she was making jelly and ended up with grape candy. One year only, we had this wonderful stuff to snack on. We would put a clean spoon down in the jar of grape "jelly" and wind that stuff around the spoon and eat it like a sucker. Yum! Yum! She had no idea what she had done to make it that way, so when it was gone, it was gone.
