What was your favorite snack as a child? Is the taste or quality the same today?

My favorite candy as a kid was the Jolly Rancher sour apple sticks. We used to have a contest to see who could get the sharpest point. I haven't seen one in years, but the small Jolly Ranchers seem to taste the same.

Me too nic529! Bugles and a big ol' Yoo-hoo at the beach in Florida, that was my favorite snack.

My favorite after-school snack was saltines with a marshmallow on top, then stuck under a broiler for a few moments. Heaven. Absolute heaven.

My fav were moon pies or zingers. I haven't had one of those in a long time so I don't know how they will hold up to my memory.

I'm old and we were poor; a favorite snack when I got home from school was a piece of bread and butter with sugar sprinkled over it. Another treat was when mom made pie crust she would take the odds and ends that she cut off the pie and roll them and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar and bake them in little twists.

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
