Oh, how I remember this Christmas hard candy. When I was little I used to buy a clear package, looking at all the flavors there were inside. I knew them by heart. Picking out the peppermint, which I didn't like, and tasting all others one at time. Sometimes I cracked them with my teeth and sometimes they lasted for a long period because I loved the flavor.
I am sure this candy was the reason I had so many cavities, but just couldn't resist the delicious taste of each one. Sometimes spending my allowance and buying two or three packages because it tasted the way the holiday was supposed to taste!
Now, I can't even find them anywhere. They used to be in all the drugstores just waiting for my arrival. I know they are pure sugar and not good for you, but once a year I celebrated and popped them in my mouth.
It's funny when pictures like this appear and my taste buds begin to feel like the holidays are here and I am celebrating. I'm going out to search for them and if I happen to see them packaged in paper or cans, buy some...to relive years gone by!

I remember this well, of course it came in a paper sack w/peanuts, apple, maybe an orange, decorated cookies.

As soon as I saw this photo I wanted a piece of that candy, Dick! Brought back so many wonderful memories.
