Remembering Old Times

Traveling back from our time in paradise this past week, we stopped at several Cracker Barrel restaurants for meals and bathroom breaks. We discovered that Cracker Barrel carries several candies that we remember from when we were very young, some of which we have never seen since that time years ago.

I enjoyed picking up Fizzies (tablets you drop into water to "make" soda) and Pop Rocks (Granulated candy that "pops" when you put it in your mouth)to share with my sibblings at Christmas. In my family, there are a few joke treats we always share-such as Peeps at Easter (now available throughout the year-even Halloween) and Chicklets gum.

It is always fun to travel back to my childhood to enjoy these simple treats over again-and share!
