Candy was CHEAPO!
My brother and I would walk to Dolly's candy store in Catonsville, MD and spend $.10 each and come out with a BAG of candy.
The most expensive candy item there was a Snicker's for $.06.
But remember the Wacky Packages? Those totally cool packs of stickers and a stick of gum (think baseball cards). The stickers made fun of brand named items such as Crust for Crest, Weakies for Wheaties, etc. They kind of reminded me of my favorite mag at the time: MAD Magazine!! I used to collect those!
Wacky Packages website!
I loved Wacky Packages so much that I actually had a Wacky Packages outfit!! Top and pants...and I wasn't that young either...I think it was 5th grade...ok I was a nerd.
Wax bottles (what was with the wax?)
Big Buddy Bubble Gum (I never see this any more)
Tell me what you remember.
