Prompt:
"I always cling to things that remind me of being a kid again." Melanie Martinez. How do you feel about this quote?

Well I don't really identify but in one little way with nostalgia about being a kid again, probably because I don't consider my childhood to have been all that swell, like many peeps. Yeah, I was a huge candy connoisseur as a kid, used to actually steal change from my mom's purse because she didn't like us to have many sweets. It was never about buying the same candy bar or pack of taffy to me, no, I had to sample everything in the store!

We have this area at our local (way over-priced) grocery store that is ALL nostalgia candy. Did they see me coming, or whata *Bigsmile* Actually, I haven't bought any, I just look and salivate. It's completely nostalgia based, none of it is really any different than the candy of today, but the packaging and the names evoke my memories of gorging on sweet, delicious candy. I mean they have shredded bubble gum that is supposed to be like tobacco 'chew'; gold coins; even Pop Rocks! Man, nothing beats that slightly dangerous feeling of those rocks popping in your mouth as you imagine choking on them (as some people actually did!) *Ha*

It wasn't about McDonald's Happy Meal toys in my era, it was all about the candy...
