Me, too. They were cool. Actually kinda nasty to eat, though. Same for the tiny wax bottles with colored fluid inside. You could bite off the top and drink the sugarwater inside. It wasn't really very nice, but who cared? I have no idea now why that stuff was so fascinating. The novelty?

i picked up some packs of those wax bottles a year or so ago and still have a few around here;) candy necklaces are still around in stores...if anyone wants one and can't find them let me know..i think we sell a couple different versions at our store.

lk give them a try...can't hurt to ask. it might be worthwhile to get a couple things at once...they have good pizzas and they're priced well. have to be cheaper than buying by the slice! there were times when we'd put in a big order and times when we would only be able to get a couple things. its not like the grocery store delivery services. this i could equate more to avon than peapod;)

I vaguely remember those wax bottles. Those didn't hold much of anything.

yeah...the nik l nip ones are about two sips;) my mom taught me to chew the wax of the 'bottles' like it was gum when i was a kid. that's what they did back during the depression! hey, its no worse than most of the actual chewing gum they sell now!

i looked at our little candy corner at the store today before we opened and we have the small packets of nik l nips as well as a couple different versions of the candy necklaces (one is a necklace and two 'bracelets' i think the other is a really long (think Joanne Worely spinning her pearls)version).

how many of us remember (or still buy) Necco wafers? they are something that is an acquired taste but they sure do last a long time! (as long as its not humid!)

If I get time tomorrow, I may look at the gift store where I volunteer at to see what candy is there. I never looked close at the candy, since I have cut way back on it long time ago. I do remember seeing rock candy there and some gum I never heard of being sold there.

I didn't get an opportunity today. Too busy with Pinewood Derby cars, which I did all day. Next time I will make an effort to check out the candy, especially if there is still gum.

We used to get this stuff called Turkish Taffy from a tiny news & candy shop when I was a kid. A flat bar, like a chocolate bar, but it was a slab of hard, white candy. We'd go outside the store and slap it down on the sidewalk to make it break up. Ya had to slap it down hard! Then we'd unwrap it and eat the shattered pieces. You couldn't chew it, but it would eventually melt in your mouth. It was exquisite!

They still make those Sue. Just wish the flavor lasted longer, is it just me or does it seem the flavor is gone a lot faster than it used to be when we chewed gum when we were kids?

suzzzz the turkish taffy is the bonomo taffy that they just brought back. they sell it through Vermont Country store. its kinda crazy expensive but theyr brought it back...vanilla,strawberry and chocolate if i remember right.

sue, they still make juicy fruit,doublemint and even big red BUT it has nutrasweet in it so it doesn't taste the same. i was using gum to keep my mouth and throat wet from all the talking it have to do at work and kept wondering why i was always thirsty..it was the stupid gum! fake sugar makes me thirsty (full of salt!).

today we got WAX LIPS in the store! i only saw the box so i'm not sure if they look like they used to or how much they are but we have them
geez, do ya think we might someday get that turkish taffy? (if we do i think i'll buy a whole box!!)

I remember those too, but they don't taste as good as they used to when you chew them.

I had time to check the gift shop and there was hardly any candy. I think someone decided to gradually do away with the candy. There was still rock candy and I saw Air Heads. There used to be vintage gum, chocolate bars, honey sticks and other candy that I didn't know about.

hey we just started selling rock candy at our store! we sell it in packs of several sticks and in individual sticks. and they're flavored....i remember when rock candy was just plain ol sugar flavor!
maybe they're just getting rid of the older candy to bring in more summery candy in the gift shop.i know we do something like that at the store...cuz some stuff just sells better in the summer and some stuff just melts (you'll see a lot of drug stores cuz back on the chocolate bars near the front because they'll get too melty!).

i keep forgetting to tell you guys...they've brought back the banana filled twinkies....they also have chocolate and strawberry but i only bought the banana to see how it was. (it was okay for the first three now i'm getting really sick of them...i'm doling them out once a day but the banana flavor just seemed stronger the first couple days!).

oh yeah they make nerds! in the little boxes (usually two flavors in a box) or in that rope version.(they have the ropes every year at christmas at least!)

this weekend i walked through different streets in NYC ...walked past some little stores that had candy in their front windows. i saw razzles in two different flavors! haven't seen those in a while...though the last time i bought them i was disappointed, at least they're out there. i THOUGHT i saw ZOTZ..i know they still make them but haven't had any for years. I've got my eyes out for them cuz i want to know if they still taste the same and still fizz the same!
