Thankful Thursdays: World's Greatest Daddy!

Sugar Daddy, that is!

Remember the Sugar Daddy pops? When I was younger, I chewed on them quite often because of the amazingly-chewy-milky-caramel-goodness. The brightly decorated packaging looked festive and probably helped me in making the decision the first time I bought one, tried it and then got hooked!

I'm quite sure these were the culprit of many a ruined filling from tugging and pulling a bit of dense caramel away from the bar and chewing and chewing, in order to soften it up.  Despite that, I generated toward the Sugar Daddy time after time whenever I came across a nickel that was dying to be spent.

It's been a long time since I had one of these caramel treats and maybe I'll have to go to the store and see if the Sugar Daddy pop is still available.

What is one of your favorite childhood candies?

Wanda, oh bring back the memories.  When I was growing up treat time was Saturday night.  Couldn't wait for Dad to come through the door with my favourite, those spong toffee squares! oh, and don't forget the orange pop soda!

That sounds yummy! Nephi or Crush?

Oooo!  I haven't thought about Sugar Daddies for years :)  There are two others that pop in from the past. One is those paper straws full of tart powder (what were they called??) -- tear off the end and pour the powder on your tongue and it would fizz a little. The most special were those candy sticks that you stuck into an orange to suck the juice out of the orange through the candy.  My brain is forgetting what both of them are called, and I can taste them!

Orange Crush for sure!

Shoshana, Pixi Stix? I'm not sure of the other one but it sounds tasty!

Gabe, I love Yoo Hoo's too! I used to love to just say it!

That's it!  Pixie Stix!  Wow -- thank you, Wanda!  My nieces have had the others, so I kknow they're still out there: the center of the candy stick is sort of a honeycomb that let's you suck juice through it...
