The correct answer is Jolly Ranchers.
+8 or +12 (I can't remember how many flavors of Jolly Ranchers there are)
Del are you old enough to remember when they came in those long, thin strips?
They still come in those. I think I have some at my office right now . . .
And what is good, Phaedrus, and what is not good? Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?

Really? I haven't seen them in that size in forever... go figure. I wonder if I'm just oblivious or if they actual only sell them in markets where they do better. Doritos does that with my favorite chip ever- can't get them in St. Louis :x

Oh my, yes! (and you know how old I am!)

For a little while, Jolly Ranchers were also available on lollypop sticks. that seemed like a natural match to me.

Turtles.

And it's not even close.
+1. Jolly Ranchers always stuck to my teeth. I think you could seal your mouth shut with them if you weren't careful.

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

Yep that's them.

Another one that I like that is simple but good is a good ole flavored candy cane stick like the ones you can get at Cracker Barrel. I remember someone used to sell them when I was in high school as a fund raiser.

Have you had the sweet tart jelly beans? I'm pretty sure a mass tasting would end this debate permanently.

Sorry everyone, but the correct answer is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. We would also have accepted Reese's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. Thanks for playing.

How about the squares they use to come as? I loved those, They use to sell'em in like a little tin like thing. something that a mint gum would be in, but i haven't seen them in forever.

My vote goes to Jolly Ranchers!

My favorite. Probably the memories just as much as taste. My grandparents always had some of these on hand when they babysat me. Of course, they're still good.

Wesley makes a good point. Whoppers are top notch.
