Good old peanut butter 'n jelly sandwiches -- still a favorite snack. We used to drive my poor mother n-u-t-s, trying to keep peanut butter in the house. I thought she'd kill us the time she caught us making what we called "peanut butter suckers" -- which was nothing more than one of the huge cooking spoons, used to scoop-out what must've easily been 1/2 cup of peanut butter. We'd walk around, licking the peanut butter off the spoon.

For about a quarter, we could walk to the 7-11 after school, fill a bag with candy, and ruin dinner. We seemed to be especially fond of Mary Janes and bubblegum, and occasionally would splurge a whole nickel on a Reese's peanut butter cup.

I have a special place in my heart for Reese's peanut butter cups. When I was quite sick as a child, I was given a medicine that was bitter and disgusting. The only way my parents could convince me to take it is if I could have a Reese's afterwards.

I also love caramel flavored popcorn, the only caramel flavored snack I can stand.

Liquorice sticks. They tasted better then, not as sweet as they are now.

I love real liquorice sticks which are like woody twigs and will still buy them if I can find them. I used to have them at school and never had to share as nobody liked them.

When I was a child we didn't have a grocery store in town---a general store but we never bought candy from there. The closest real store was 40 miles away. So my favorite snack was my mothers homemade chocolate chip cookies with tons of walnuts in them. No one could make them the way she did and to this day I haven't found anyone who could!!
