    Speaking of over 45...

    ...Found these and other long lost confections from my youth in the airport.



    1) Chick-O-Stick is my all time favorite candy.

    2) Is it felony to possess tobacco-themed treats these days?

    3) Just a bite out of each else it'll be a long flight home.

    4) I can't begin to imagine who's making this stuff these days...nor do I really want to find out

    I lived off Chick-O-Sticks in college. Nice to see that picture again.

    Anybody remember the Cherry Mash? Very tasty...

    They look like love hearts or something


    What I'm curious about is the "Nutrition facts' bit is so big !!!

    Surely it should just say "None" or "sugar" period

    I had Clark bars growing up. Don't think I ever ate one, but I remember seeing them. Candy cigarettes and bubble gum cigars....loved them, and I'm sure had nothing to do with me being a smoker. I used to get the candy cigarettes from the ice cream man and play that I was a detective or a private eye.

    When I wanted to be Hannibal Smith, it was often pizza crusts that stood in for cigars, though.
