I think pretzels and animal crackers used to taste a lot better than they do now. We had bread, butter and sugar for a snack, too.

Another candy (or is it gum?) that I liked as a kid was Razzles. It's still available for ordering online at the Retro Candy website:

OK, I'm on a roll now. One more thing I fondly remember in my childhood was this flavored peanut spread called Koogle. My favorite flavor was the chocolate, which is very similar to Italian nutella spread. For those of you not familiar with Koogle, here's a link to a Wikipedia article:

Koogle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In a way, I'm glad this isn't available anymore, or else I'll eat the whole jar in one sitting.

Default Fav childhood candy

I remember getting the same candy bar every week after swimming lessons - Zagnut, I believe it was called. Do they still make it??? Also, Chunkys and Rolos. Then walking home from school, we'd go to a little store and buy penny candy - you could get a lot for a quarter back then!

grasshoppers(green apple), firesticks, cinnamon toothpicks, charms lollipops the grape or cherry, foot long bubble gum big daddy or big buddy. Chew the whole thing one hell of a bubble. Hot tamales, zotz,fizzies, big hunk, black cow candy bars. snoballs, red zingers,space food sticks, hostess ding dongs,chocolate chip or mint chip ice cream in a pointy sugar cone. cracker jacks when they had cool prizes. taco flavored doritos when they first came out. And cherry coke icees. Summer time was great as a kid we would run to the store several times a day. Remember when you could cash in pop bottles?

I grew up in Newport News, Va., and I remember we used to buy something that was shaped like a graham cracker, it was sugar coated, and had thin sliced almonds. Can't remember what it was called, or the brand. when we moved to Fla in ' 68, I never saw them again. Anyone remember them?

Animal crackers and animal cookies. The difference is the yogurt coating on the craker.

I liked Animal crackers for one reason only, to bite the heads off of animals. Yah... i was a sick, but bored, kid.

Eeew! I don't remember Space Food Sticks as being tasty. My favorites were Lemonheads (not the same now), Abba Zabba, long ChickOsticks, Zotz, Big Hunk, Pay Day, Jolly Ranchers, Ice Cubes, and Mountain Bars. Mountain Bars are really hard to find now, and the creamy middle is a lot smaller and it doesn't have as much nuts in the chocolate.
Does anybody remember Fruitza? Like a frozen pizza but made with fruit?
Disgustingly tasty.
