    I was a HUGE fan of Fun Dip and Pixie Stix. Now looking back at the fact it was just flavored pure sugar makes me wonder how I didn't have twice the cavities I ended up with!

    I always like the Twix candy bars. I still like them, but they just don't like me any more.

    I agree with cola bottles, but don't forget cough candy, rhubarb and custard, toffee crumble, sherbert lemons.  Maybe the best of all, blackjacks.
