What was your favorite candy when you were a kid? How does that compare to now?
I was partial to “Bottle Caps” – especially the root beer flavored. I don’t crave them much though.
The candy that has carried over from childhood to my adult years is Hersey’s Chocolate Bar without Almonds. Every time my dad would come home from work, he would bring home one of these. I’d sit there at the kitchen table and imagine the whole chocolate bar represented a building, with each square a floor of the building. I then imagined myself as Godzilla, devouring said building until there was no more.
I still devour the chocolate building. I just don’t make the Godzilla noises any longer. My wife finds it irritating.
