How Sweet It Is

This week our dear mascot Ruby RedHat got a bit nostalgic with our Facebook followers. Every day, Ruby hops onto our Facebook Page  to share her question of the day, and this week she asked about everyone's favorite childhood treats. In a matter of minutes we had quite a few responses!

Since many social media sites have coined Thursday: "Throwback Thursday," we decided to dedicate today's entry to that nostalgic post.

Here were a few of the responses we received:

Jane: I loved Black Cows! Chocolate covered on a stick! Softer than a Sugar Daddy and coated in milk chocolate.

Helen: Hate to admit it, but I loved getting candy gum cigarettes, and pretending to "smoke" just like the grown ups! 

Penny: Wax lip! Remember?

Peggy: We used to get moon pies and RC from my uncle's one room store that was next door.

Toni: I cannot remember the name of it, but it was long chocolate chewy candy bar that had caramel in it, and the wrapper had a picture of like a ruler on it, because it was so long! Does anyone remember what I'm talking about and what the name of it was? 

Paula: The candy dots stuck to the paper. We never knew how to get them off the paper without ending up with some paper on them. Then a couple years ago, my mom told us the trick: all you had to do was lick the backside and they fall right off! 

Joyce: I miss Bazooka Joe Bubble Gum and Penny candy! Oh and don't forget Bit O' Honey!!

Ginger: Homemade cinnamon rolls with pecans and maple frosting.
