I was loving this until I got to Chum Bubble Gum! NASTY! I know it's probably supposed to be "chum" as in "friend," but all I can think is fish bait.

Well, that's probably why they phased it out; it was my first thought, too.

I stole it, so you're welcome to steal it too.

The "Coconut Grove" sounds like it'd be good. I like its wrapper too.

I remember the Ben Franklin HAD a 'PENNY CANDY' counter, and you could buy tiny candy bars for 5cents. Oh joy. 30cents and you were RICH!!!

When I was a kid you could buy a penny's worth of candy for a penny!

Oh, there was candy for a penny, too: Sweet tart like things, little cello wrappers of tiny malt balls in bright circus colours, those wax bottles with sweet fruit syrup in them. Stuff like that.

I miss those wax bottles. I imagine they're still being made somewhere. Remember the "Wax gum" moustaches? at some point, I got to the point where I could actually stomache that stuff, and would chew it.
