Photo Friday: 18-10-12 Candy

Candy
When I was a young boy, candy seemed magical. For a few coins I could buy something special. Here is a picture of a old favorite. These were small but had a strong chocolate punch.

Please share some sweetness in the comments.

  1. I’ve never been much of a fan of candy.

    Oh, you can build a rocket out of it?

    Or, even better, a rocket car!

    But did the Mentos survive on the aborted launch in the first video? I didn’t see any parachutes.

    And it will be powered by hot air, but blizzards will follow in its wake.

    The tentative name is “Global Fever”. It is like a Ferrari only safer. No one will ever die from a high speed crash in a Global Fever. It will have the patented Hockey Stick acceleration. 0 to 60 in 5.6 years. YSMV.

  6. When I was a teenager, one of my favorite candies was small tootsie rolls.  They were about 1″ lone and individually wrapped.  The location was extremely important for enjoying them

    We used to go caving and most of the caves near us were very dusty.  We would fill our pockets with the tootsie rolls and after several hours of exploring, would sit back and unwrap a couple to have with water from our canteens.  Heaven! and a good shot of quick energy.  Sometimes, our pockets would be filled with dirt or mud and the extra crunch added to the experience.

    I never particularly liked them outside of caves, though

  8. My grandmother gave us full sized candy bars at Halloween rather than the usual “fun size.” Plus a gallon sized Ziploc bag with cash, and other candies.
    Just sayin’.
    I had the best grandmother.
