Can you remember when sweets were sold loose?
If so what were your favourites? Mine were probably sherbet pips with sherbet lemons coming a close second.
Yes, I do remember, and my favorites were Toffees. I use to hide a couple in my pocket whenever I was going to church, and bwoy oh bwoy! the fun I had sucking on them.
Of course! At the grocery store near our home my dad would take a few, which shocked me at the time. "I am doing quality control", he informed us, and we half believed him, being an important person in town as a teacher and drama director. We were always suspicious though - and a few years later I found myself doing "quality control" myself.
They still are at candy shops in the mall.....
Gummy coke bottles, rock candy, giant jaw-breakers just to name a few. and don't forget Jelly Bellies assorted and pick-a-flavor! Have you tried the Harry Potter Merchandising franchise "Bertie Bott's every flavor beans?" these have booger, sardine, and dirt flavor!(they are also produced under license by Jelly Belly inc.)
I can't remember this but they do sell loose sweets at Fresh Market now. It is a different sort of treat to bag it. It makes you think you have more for your money.
I remember buying Indian cookies at a little country store, from a large jar. I am really telling my age, that was in Osceola Texas, we are talking sticks here. Blessings:

Favourite Snacks? I personally love crisps and sweets but would like to know of other people's favourites.
