I was at a tiny market by the beach today, when I saw one lone sucker on the candy shelf and found myself utterly bowled over by nostalgia.
It was a Slapstick lollipop. Caramel on a stick with some sort of swirlies.
I've seen many of the candies from my youth, but this was one I hadn't remembered until I saw it sitting there.
Without even thinking, I grabbed it up and bought it.
I'd had no intention of having a treat - I didn't even have any sort of hankering for sugar - but I immediately broke into it.
The swirlies were nasty, fake, sugary banana flavoring.
I ate it anyway. It brought back memories of hanging at Lake Huron, jumping off the dock and splurging all my pocket money on stuff like...banana flavored lollipops.
What candy reminds you of YOUR youth?
