Blast from the past

I was out beating the path today instead of studying, when something familiar caught my eye. TAFFY! As a kid this was one of my favorite things to buy, for twenty five cents you got chewy tri-flavour goodness wrapped in wax paper.

In the store jumping up and down with excitement, I noticed that the wax paper is now crimped at both ends instead of cut to size with the sugary treat, which could account for some of the $1.04 price increase.

Back in the car I gnawed away the wax paper and chomped into the brown, it gave way under my teeth with a brittle crack, my impatience had won and I didnt' wait to get my treasure to a more temperate climate. Curse you winter weather!

I still ate the brown first, then the white and finally the pink. Its gonna a lot longer for me to save up my pennies for my next piece, but now that I know where to go look out!


  1. Start saving the loonies for the dentist! Ha ha ha!

  2. man, i remember loving taffy as a kid, too. there was this little store near where my family would go camping (which was a big deal to me, as there were no stores near where i lived), and me and my cousins would collect soda cans to cash in and buy candy. thanks for the memory!

  3. Oh, yes. This brought back memories! Yum!!

  4. Taffy is a fun, nostalgiac treat. There are so many great flavors. I love the neopolitan ones too.

  5. Yum! I LOVE taffy!
    Then I discovered abba zabbas had taffy with peanut butter inside and I was in heaven!
