Flashback!

Work took me to Covington, GA yesterday. My coworkers and I are famous for our detours, so it was no surprise when we detoured from work and found ourselves at a candy shop. Being on a never ending diet, I was not going to purchase any candy. I was satisfied with just looking around at all the neat and yummy treats this quaint little shop held. That is until I came upon these.......

CANDY CIGARETTES


I didn't think they made these any more! Amazing! I used to love candy cigarettes as a kid, and yesterday was the first time I had seen them in twenty years. Of course, I purchased four packs. You can't be stingey when candy cigarettes are involved! You have to have packs to share! Now if I could just find those new Coconut M&MS, my life would be complete! :)

I remember those candy cigarettes!
I use to stand at the bus stop on fall mornings, when it was foggy, and I'd act like I was smoking those! Ha! Ha! The memories!:)

Oh my gosh! I loved candy cigarettes when I was little! My mom wouldn't let me have them, but my granddad would sneak them to me :)

I thought they stopped making those guess not. Coconut m&ms do sound interesting. They also have pb&j m&m's that were released as transformer m&ms that I've been wanting to try.
