The girl child and I went to dinner the other night at one of our favorite haunts. It’s an old-style general store (pizza/sub shop), complete with penny candy. After devouring our pizza and milling about the store looking for goodies we settled on purchasing Mary Jane’s and candy cigarettes.
My teeth hurt just thinking about all the sugar. What fun. E actually insisted that we purchase the candy cigarettes…we really do LIKE the fine, chalky taste of them. After sampling the Mary Jane’s she said, “Um, I’m not sure I like those. They taste old.” Probably because they’ve been sitting on the shelf for YEARS and we’re the first people to even consider buying them. Yum.
