Let's talk the candy of my childhood, shall we? Most of my weekly allowance always went to candy and chocolate. And not to be all 'when I was young I had to walk to school in four feet of snow in my bare feet -- uphill both ways" or anything, but I do remember candy bars (aka chocolate bars) being 5 cents a bar. Then they went to ten, then soon after to 25 cents and very quickly went up to nearly a dollar after that - the price jumped fast once they started going up.
Anyway, I could get a candy bar for 5 cents and a bag of penny candy for 5 cents (because penny candy used to be exactly that - in fact two pieces of bazooka bubble gum was a penny) and that used to be my allowance. I remember when it went up to a quarter, and then to fifty cents. Fifty cents buys you very little these days.
Anyone remember this chocolate bar?
The Bar Six! They had a great add - get a bar six and make it snappy, something something, bar six will make you happy... It was kind of like a kit kat, but with orange notes, if I remember correctly. I could be wrong though.
