Most of what is on that list. Plus chocolate ice cubes, pop rocks, and those awful candy necklaces that got really stuck in your hair if you were stupid enough to try and wear them. Ohh! and Razzles and Teaberry gum.

Does anyone remember the Marathon bar, I think that was the name, it was a braided strand of caramel covered in chocolate.

I also liked the Charleston Chew alot...

They still have the 100 grand bar, LOVE those. Anything with crisp rice and chocolate is good with me.

Jujubes! Very stale and very chewy, in that perfect rip-out-your-fillings stage before they get old and crumbly.

Everlasting Gobstoppers, not the tiny chewy ones, but the hard giant ones that could easily choke you if you swallowed it wrong. They lasted forever.

Charleston Chews are still good and I'll still pick them up and throw a few in the freezer for an occasional treat.

Mary Jane. Not a macho candy but I had a secret passion for them.

Candy I will still pick-up on a whim:

Jujubes
Charleston Chew
Haribo Golden Gummi Bears and only Haribo. Also perfect when stale.
