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
Hahah My mother loved squirrels. Penny candy was great. We used to take quarter to the store and get a soda, chips, and a popsicle. Oh yeah, creamsicles...yummy.

* Marathon Candy Bars (they don't make them anymore).

* Nehi Peach Soda (only found in select areas of the county). Still tastes the same to me, but that was about 5 years ago.

and last, but not least . . . .

* SoHo Grape Soda in the bottle.

This Japanese rice candy with an edible inner wrapper called Botan Ame. Fortunately, it's still available at places like Wal-Mart and Cost-Plus Imports.

LOVED Sugar Daddy -- tasted great and lasted all day. Close second was Butterfinger -- still occasionally buy one.

Miu, Ice Cubes were also my favorite. They made a candy bar for a VERY brief period. I haven't seen them in stores here in CA in at least 15 years, but I know you can still get them on that old fashioned candy site on the web. They don't taste the same? That breaks my heart!

Flicks, Sixlets and Abba Zabba. (I think the Ice Cubes still taste the same! )
