    Button candy...those pastel sugar drops on a long roll of paper...so pretty...not so tasty...OH and candy necklaces that left pastel smears on your neck when you'd start slobbering to bite them off the elastic around your neck. The candy watches were cool too.

    In England it was "All Sorts" & Licorice, when I came to the States it was Lemon-Drops & Bazooka-Bubble-Gum! Those were the days!

    Let's see, all of these weren't necessarily a penny to me, but this is what I ate as a kid...jaw breakers, boston baked beans, horehound candy, bb bats, paydays, those coke bottle things with the colored water in them, candy necklaces, raisinets, lemon drops and butterscotch drops.

    We were not allowed to chew gum, so I have no favorites of those. My mom thought gum was the lowest of low and said people looked like a cow chewing its cud when they did so. So we didn't. :lol

    Carmel Buckeyes with the cream filling. Yumm.. and they have to be soft. I also liked small brach's sourballs that my grandparents kept in a candy jar. :) Denise - I confess I still like Mary Jane's. I don't chew on them anymore though for the same reasons as you mentioned.

    I was just talking to my boss about this. My grandparents lived in Salt Lake City, and we would stay the summer with them. We would collect the empty soda bottles and take them to the corner store and trade them in for penny candy. Candy lipstick, paper cigarettes that you could blow a puff of powder out of, wax soda bottles in a paper six pack container, black wax chewy moustaches, red wax lips, I remember them all. Gosh, good memories.

    When my sister was in hospital for a knee replacement, I sent her a basket filled with old time candies like that. (Ordered it somewhere on line.) She loved it, said the nurses went nuts, came in all day long on flimsy excuses to get a piece! LOL!
