Kids in a Candy Store



Welcome to Candy Week here at OPOD. We will spend the week looking at people enjoying candy. Today's picture was taken in 1941, and it shows a classic view of children in a candy store. I can remember growing up in the 1960's, a really good candy bar would be about 5 or ten cents. Now the same thing would be well over a dollar. Now days I don't eat much candy, but if I were going to get a candy bar, I would get a Big Hunk. I like them because they taste very good, and take a long time to eat. OK, lets see if we can learn what everyone else likes, and lets see if there is a favorite candy bar among our readers. So, please share what your favorite candy bar is.

  1. Too many to list. Depended on what mood I was in.

  2. There is no way to beat a cold Hershey's Chocolate Bar. If they get warm, they tend to quickly become a real mess.

    2. At the movies it was either Flicks, Milk Duds, & Raisinettes. The empty candy boxes back in the 60s made a great noise when you blew into the open end. The box designs changed...probably because of annoying kids like me.

  7. When I was growing up in the 70s, my little town still had a candy store along with the little corner stores. Once the 7-11 opened, it was all over for just about every Mom and Pop store. Anyhow, I loved Peanut Chews, which I really don't see anymore...but they make a reappearance every few years. I agree about the Hershey's Bar, they are my favorite now chilled in my fridge!

  9. Good comments!

    I always liked Almond Roca. But since that's not really a candy bar, I also liked Heath Bars.

    Now I never eat a candy bar. Not from health, but from choices.

  13. Milky Ways. I tend to like darker chocolate now than when I was a kid, so the really dark ones (75% cacao) are good too.
