OH - I failed to mention ... CAVITIES!

Our Penny Candy,
Engorged with Delight -
Was a Boon only to Dentists -
Who Smiled at Every Bite!

OOPS! Left out an Important Word ...
CHOCOLATE ! See Pic for Expose' ...




1c Candy

© - Tom Hyland - 3/7/11

‘Penny Candy’
Aah - I remember it Well -
So Sweet - So Dandy!

JujyFruits - Jujubes - Hot Wheels - Dots n’ Fishes -
Jellied Candies - Soft like Gummi Bears -
Long Before they Existed - were in our Candy Dishes!

Kits - Flavored, Paper-Wrapped Little Squares -
Mary Janes - Peanuts n’ Molasses -
All These and More - Confectioner’s Wares!

Turkish Taffy by Bonomo’s -
And Homemade Same - Displayed in Strips -
Chocolate - Vanilla - Strawberry - Widened your Hips!

Sugar - Sugar - Everywhere -
As Kids we Gulped it Down -
Never Ever With a Care!

But Now - Generations Later -
‘Fat-Asses’ with Sugar Diabetes -
Where was FDA - our Food Rater?

Syrup - Caramel - Nougats Galore -
Peanuts - Walnuts - Pecans - All for Crunch -
Bought in Bunches - Gim’me More!

Colored Sugar Dots on White Paper Strips -
‘Good n’ Plenty’s’ by the Ounce -
We pounced upon our Lips!

Penny Candy - How I Miss It -
Yummy - Gummy - Chewy - Crunchy -
And Now - Too Old to Get a Zit!

(C) TKH.

Oh yeah, Black Jack, Smarties, Necco, Jaw breakers, Wax lips, Wax bottles with sugar water, Fleer Bubble gum with comics! Double bubble, never as good. BIG tootsie rolls, Bazooka Joe and his famous turtleneck face. Hiding cavities? Sugar filled straws - forget the name. Dum Dums, Safety lollipops on a string, milk duds, Boston Baked Beans, Tootsie Roll pops, root beer barrels. I used to have a sweet tooth. Now they are all porcelain. Doesn't affect my beer tooth though. Patrick

Alas, I still devour it, but penny candy now costs a big buck. And you've reminded me of another Yogi Berra quote: "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore!"

You do have a way with words Tom. Oh, as for the candy, still enjoying every chocolate bite...

Be always safe,

"‘Fat-Asses’ with Sugar Diabetes"

Well my ass ain't too fat, maybe yours, but I so know where you coming from with this write...today they dose kids with ADHD drugs, then it was candy, candy & more candy & sugary soda's & other drinks along the same lines...we were taught that if we wanted to feel better we should eat more sugar...oh well, if you make it to be old, like you (LOL), we should supposedly live & learn...Ed

Tom, How timely and funny. Loved the memories and the humorous chocolate rabbits. Lol. You tickle me with this one. Oh and Apple flavor Jolly Ranchers. Remember my sister holding my hand and walking down the sandy side of the road in Atlanta going to the old country store in Atlanta, Georgia to buy from the old lady chewing snuff and spitting it into the old tin cam with tomatoes on the label.
blessings Tom,
Starman (rockie)
