Flickr Sweet Tooth

Yes, I finally decided to start putting candy photos up on flickr. It will be a slow, but steady process. Don't blame me if you find yourself dealing with a licorice Jones in the middle of the night. It's a great test of will power (of which I obviously have none).
Mmmmm, sugar.

Oh my goodness! This photo reminded me of my childhood. We used to go to the corner store and buy candy from the candy jar for one cent a piece. Remember when a piece of candy used to cost a penny each??? Now, those Swedish berries, fuzzy peaches, gummy worms, and sour kids are more expensive...AND there's tax! LOL! *sigh* I miss my childhood.

Hey there Chrissy, how's the weather up there? I'd been waiting for your Japanese ghost stories. That's weird about the #4 being associated with death and bad luck. One of my favorite things was something they stopped making called Chum Gum. It was two for a penny so you could give one to your chum.

lol, chum gum? For an instant I had these visions of bloody cut up bits of fish in gum-format. Chum-gum.

lol....what on earth are those pastel colored flying saucer things? Are they sweet tarts?

Jeanna said...

Good thing I didn't know about chum when I was a kid. That was pre Jaws.
Those round bits of nasty are flying saucers. I didn't grow up with them, but flatlanders say they did. I think they taste like Communion wafers full of Pixie Sticks, so close on the Sweetarts.

that's a ewwwww....the communion wafers thing sounds horrible. Yuck.

Thanks for breaking up my dreary can't procrastinate any longer cuz football's over Sunday night, Jodi. I found the Flying Saucers surprisingly bad when I first tried them a few years ago. My nephew who likes Flaming Cheetos loves them.

LOL! "The Communion wafers"!!! That's exactly what I was going to say! They stick to the roof of your mouth. I don't know why we kept buying them when we were kids. Weird!

PS. The weather's been pretty mild here. No snow yet and it's almost December. Now, that's weird! Oh, hope you don't mind, but I linked you :)

Hey, C., windy and 36 down here, but I can still wear a light fall jacket. Thanks for the link and keep reviewing those movies. Just saw the last Die Hard and Meet The Robinsons over the holidays. Both good.

Hey! Thanks for dropping by my blog and for the warning :) I think he left a comment on my post about chocolate a few weeks ago to :)

Nice blog you have here, and I'll definitely be a regular reader!

Hey there Hamster. I think any chocolate goes well with marshmallow. I can not believe you made that cake. Lordy! I never knew about making a fondue with cream like that. Will keep that in mind the next time I fall off the wagon.
NOTE: Follow the hamster's link if you want to be tempted in the worst (or best) way.
