So I was having a deep, I mean, super deep, heavy philosophical type, esoteric discussion on the really good candy. My Wife, is a lil bit older than me so she thinks she's got it on lock when it comes to the greatest, bestest, super duper type ish. But she don't know!
And just so you know, for the record. Just cause you were old enough to dance to the Ohio Players and Earth Wind and Fire and carry the cool Afro Fist pick don't mean y'all know every damn thang! Besides, Polyester and the Pet Rock came out in the 70's too. So there!
Well, wait....Death before Disco!
Gotta recite the pledge ya know. On with Mista Jaycee's List of the Greatest, Bestest Candy! Feel free to join in, make suggestions although I think I got it on lock!
If You didn't own a Pez Dispenser You was deprived!
The Ring Pop! It worked on so many levels. It was the cool, Mack like. Pinkie ring. Cute Lil gyals, dug em and dug you for a moment. The Cute Lil Gyals thanks to 3D ripened to become beautiful young Sistahs, still roxxin the ring pop but with an extra mass appeal. ( WINK) Oh, come on, none of us was seeing or doing nothing except getting hot and bothered watching Select TV or On after dark. BE Real!
Now, this was probably the first piece of jewelry any of us owned. It was overpriced, cheaply made, sugary and gaudy as all hell. Then after it got wet, your hair got stuck on it but you ate it anyway. ( Admit it) AHHHH! Good Times!
The Matching Bracelet! ( read the above caption)
Oh, one of my first loves! Now Laters! The Apple were the greatest! They were Hard but we loved them and if you got a stale pack they were chewy and good. Now they jacked em up and changed the recipe. They ruined!The Big Hunk! You had to have them G Teefis to eat this!
The one that filled a thousand and one detentions! Still going strong! Still filling detentions! Still getting kids in trouble during Church Services but boy do they ever make your breath stink!
Breath just be Howling!
Again, got you in trouble in church and filled detentions in schools all over America.
The Straight up no nonsense pure unadulterated Funkadelic candy! It was Hot! Good to have at the movies!
The Jolly Rancher! Same thang as the ring pop but more bang for ya buck! And if you really grown and sexxxy the fire stick was the bomb!
Jolly Joe's was the Original Hub City Compton California Candy! Sugar! Water! Purple! Nothin else!
The Absolute Top Dawg! Lemonheads! The best 10 cent candy for 35 cents! Hey! It was marked up but so totally worth it!
Ok, You got to be a real Candy connoisseur to know the original Fun dip! The one with the hard candy stick and the three flavors that would mix together. Another one they tampered with and jacked!
