    I miss those crappy candy cigarettes of my childhood, too. Chalky goodness!

      We were at the Deerfield, NH fair, last autumn, and a guy had a table full of cheap toys and candy for sale. I laughed out loud to see candy cigarettes among the items for sale. Hadn't seen those since I was a kid. Would've bought some for old time's sake if my son hadn't been with me.

        I would have bought all the candy cigarettes he had- I loved those things!

      1. ok - somewhat off topic but
        i HATE the change from 100 thousand dollar bar to 100 grand bar. the original name had a nice rhythmic meter. the new name is clunky

        1. I will only eat Kit Kat and Reeses Pbutter things during Halloween (maybe easter too). Hate that waxy, funky taste most Hershey's and that Walmart brand-what is it Palmer? Kaaaaaa- gotta scrape your tongue to get rid of the taste.
          Do you make vampire teeth with the candy corn? We used to do that.

            Wow! I thought I was the only one who made vampire teeth from candy corn! Glad I'm not alone (actually I still do it!). I love the candy corn, but ONLY Brach's brand, don't like the taste of the other brands, and ALL Palmer brand candy should be banned, all of it is nasty stuff that doesn't taste like it should. Blechh!

          2. Reeses and bottle caps, Twix. I don't eat candy at all really during the year, except for some dark chocolate now and then, but Halloween's the only time I'll indulge. It's just THERE in the house when it normally isn't something I'd buy at all.
