How about candy cigarettes....they kinda tasted odd.

The pink buble gum cigars were awesome...could feel your teeth rot.

Yeah those candy cigarettes weren’t very good. They did have a red painted tip though, to emulate a lit cigarette, and that was cool

Heck I tell my kids about buying Bazooka Joe bubble gum---complete with a comic!---with the two pennies I found on the ground outside and their minds are blown. Nothing in their world costs less than $0.50 and $20 is a decent amount to hit the toy section with. I remember my maternal grandparents (both born around 1920) expressing shock they had spent $30 on a Transformer for me for Christmas (Defensor, #7 below). Some years later they spent $200 on a Discman, but I think by then they understood the "new" cost of things.

And back when Electronic Arts wasn't a soulless micro-transaction focused shit company. I stacked several cords of firewood to pay for this game...which wasn't really a game at all, it was work and when you were done building a game you had something really cool, but ultimately a bit deflating since you knew how to solve all the puzzles and missions you'd built. Such is the life of a game developer...

I remember when going trick or treating on Halloween was a huge event in the surrounding neighborhoods. It's pretty sucky it's dwindled into nothing. I loved going and taking part in scaring people at my friend's highly decorated home.
