sweets for the sweet...

today i went to a candy store.

i saw the store last night...and somehow...ended up there today...with camera in hand...and money in my pocket!

there were lots of old-fashioned today's prices.


here's what i bought!!!
  • bubblegum cigs...

  • chick-o-stick bites...

did you notice they are made by atkinson's? remember...that's the name of the store i kept in business when i was growing up. wow...they must have made a grip off of me!!!

  • atomic fire balls...

i used to spend quite a bit on these. when i saw them in the store today...i immediately grabbed a handful!!!

  • now laters...

and...yet another fave. i only bought a few of these.

thanks for sharing this trip down memory lane with me. now...i'm going downstairs to get some of my candy. :)


  1. OMG, all my childhood favorites..the candy dots, Banana Now and Laters, Chick-O-Sticks (look how they've shrunk).

  2. Very cool... it must have been a blast!

  3. Great colours. This takes me back to when my mom first brought home Cigarette Candies for us.

  4. Love your choices ... I love doing childhood touchstone things like this every now and then. :-)

    Let me know if you run into giant *real* malted milk balls or seriously peanut buttery peanut butter logs with stripes that go all the way through!!! That's what I'm talkin' about!
