Those long cigars with the red tip, I think it's made of icing or something.....Used to love those as a kid and only recently discovered them again but no red tip on the end, But they're still large, about 15cm long and still yummy as I remember them..........

Never heard of those, what were they, and what do you mean real toys?

For that Kinder Eggs........They used to have good stuff in them but not any more. I know people that have collections of all the stuff they used to have and some of th toys you used to get were amazing value for the time.

I loved getting Bottle Caps off the ice cream truck. Of course, I got ice cream too, but I licked the Bottle Caps

Up until the 1970s, I think, Cracker Jacks used to have a variety of toys, from little plastic figures and whistles to mini-models that you had to assemble. They also had food-color tattoos on paper and mini comic books, but consumer advocates got on Cracker Jacks for the many toys with small pieces that could pose a hazard to kids.

OMG that's some collection. You know some of that stuff is worth good money.

That's what I meant about Kinder Eggs in the good old days, meaning for me around the late 80s to mid 90s when I was just entering adulthood........Some of the things you used to get were quite intricate and I had friends who had amassed big collections of the more useful items like the model planes and even some trains and stuff you had to assemble.

Now Kinder eggs are a bit of a disappointment now. I show some of the kids in my family the stuff I still have and their eyes light up.... "we don't get that stuff"

I wasn't allowed to eat candy that much growing up because I have severe ADHD, but when I did eat candy, I was all about these:

Love those.

I still grab some Haribo gummy bears, Toblerone and Big Hunk -- another childhood favorite -- at the dollar store on occasion.

When I was an Army brat in Germany in the very early '60s, we got lots of creative candy. My favorite was a clear-candy-filled clam shell (real shell) with a toy embedded in the candy. The only way to get the toy was to lick the candy out. Took all day.

I'd send you some if I could. The local grocery store sold them for 25 cents a box. LOL!

Thanks but they're on the list of banned imports, but thanks for the thought.

Gummi bears, candy necklaces and something I forgot the name of, maybe any of you can help me on this:

It looks like an ammunition holder and the candy droplets go inside, stacked to the top. At the bottom a small spring pushes the candy upwards. At the top it can be anything from an animals head to something like a clown, you push the back of the head down, the mouth opens and the droplet is pushed out.

So you buy the thing ones, and after that buy the refills.

Pez dispensers were originally developed to dispense medication.

I suppose in a way they're still serving that purpose.
