When I was a child I lived on a farm and we grew our own pop corn. We had a popper that would use real butter to pop it in. The flavor was incredible. Better than anything you can buy today.

I liked Seven Up candy bars, Butternut candy bars, Chunky back when it still had cashews in it, Big Pay candy bars, Lemon Coolers cookies, Zotz, Schotzels, orange push ups, Mars bars back when the almonds were whole and across the top, Peanut Butter and NO JELLY candy bars, Sunshine Golden Fruit biscuits, and Swedish Cream cookies.

Choco-lite candy bars. Ice Cubes, Rainblo gum - the smaller size in the long package, Chunky, Twinkies, Razzles. Whire bread with butter, sugar, and cinnamon placed under the broiler.

Why do I have cavities?

Frozen Clark Bars. We used to get these at the pool during "adult swim" for a dime...
Also liked Cow Tails/Goetz's caramel cremes...

Sky Bars...the only place I can find them here is at Cracker Barrel, which is quite a distance from my home.

Chocolate Twizzlers also, but Y&S was bought out by Hershey's and they changed them completely. I hate them now!

Big Boogie. I don't think they make them anymore. Sort of like a giant Bit 'O Honey. It came in "plain" and strawberry. Cost a nickel and it was big.

When I was small, bread and butter with sugar sprinkled on it. Once in awhile, an O Henry bar, but they changed drastically - chocolate-flavored cottonseed meal is NOT the same as real chocolate coating! Others I liked that have changed are Cherry Mountain bars and just about every kind of fried pie. A month ago, I got a box of cherry cordials, and they were downright icky. I like Violet Crumbles, but I haven't seen any for years, let alone tasted one, so I dunno. And when I was little and my gran took me along shopping downtown, she'd get a bag of cream filberts, which were blanched hazelnuts with a very thick rich sugar coating. They were about the size of a shooter marble, so you can imagine how thick the coating was!
