i recently saw mammoth bags of marshmallow strawberries and marshmallow bananas at a wal-mart in toronto recently...i have fond childhood memories of the strawberries with their sugary-tart coating...you could get 2 for 5 cents at the corner store.
Haha, do I dare say, I remember those same prices, haha! I think we are aging ourselves, haha.
I remember the peanuts well too, they are a bit harder to come by now. Hhmn, do I dare say that I still like all of these things, haha! You folks are missing the point with sweets, let me educate you. The trick to really appreciating sweet things is to eat them when you are really hungry, like first thing in the morning. Then you can truly appreciate sweet but if you eat sweets when you are already content, well then they taste sicky sweet. Which is why candy and cake and such are really good for breakfast, unless you are diabetic!
Haha, I hope you know I am kidding, well sort of. I am terrible for pulling stunts like this. Some of us never grow up and remain a kid in a candy store, haha!
Cotton Candy anyone, haha!
