I was recently at a store that had a bowl of candy out at the register (well don’t mind if I do!), and I was beyond elated when I plucked out an old school Atomic Fireball. I haven’t had one since circa 6th grade, and the funny thing was I STILL had to rinse it off with water first because it was too fiery for my tastebuds. Now I’m totally nostalgic for all the Warheads, Now and Laters, Bubble Tape, gobstoppers, and jaw breakers of my youth that we traded at recess and snuck into class despite threats of detention.
My sweet tooth luckily doesn’t flare up too often these days, and when it does, my favorite indulgence is sea salt dark chocolate, but I think a Push Pop now and then is in order!
