Memory Lane Monday (on Tuesday): Sweets

Memory Lane Monday is posted on Tuesday this week because I was having router problems yesterday and could not post my comments.  Sorry.  Nevertheless, I'm committed to moving forward with a few of my personal history memories this year, therefore, I'm posting today.

 Here is my Memory Lane Monday memory:

As I turn back the hands of time, I was always intrigued by the various candies at Halloween with their different sizes and shapes when I was a child.  Sugar Babies and Sugar Daddies were my favorite.  (There seemed to be more variety then.)  I remember eating a 3 Musketeers candy bar after school for quite some time when I was a teenager.  (My favorite is now Snickers.)  I also loved “Cup ‘o Gold”. I’ve never outgrown my love for Root Beer Floats, so they are still a favorite choice of mine for dessert today, along with Klondike Bars, Dryers or Bryers Ice Cream, and I love Drumsticks.  Oh My!

On another note:

I was pleased to discover The Old Time Candy Company.  Click the banner below to take a further walk down Memory Lane while remembering candies from days gone by.  I find these candies to be a unique gift for birthdays and holidays for that person who “has everything” or is difficult to buy for.  I try to gather ideas so that my gift-giving can also be along family-heritage lines.  There’s just nothing like happy memories to gladden the heart!

Check out the entire blog prompt and a great (new) book on the market:
