Fizzies came back every few years, but quickly went away again. A great idea. If you can drop an Alka-Seltzer into a glass and get a fizzy stomach drink, why not drop a fruit- or root beer-flavored tablet and get an instant soda? Because some brands or flavors had an Alka Seltzer/baking soda-type taste, that's why. I remember these from 1966. And 1972. And even from 2010 (Kool-Aid's version, of which grape was the best flavor). Someday someone will get it right. Back to the drawing board ...
FIZZIES! I freaking loved these.

Jacks were my favorite recess game as a child, only we usually played with a golf ball! How in the world did we fit all ten jacks and a big golf ball into our tiny hands? Babies, eggs in the basket, strike the match, pigs in the pen, halfsies, pigs over the fence, around the world, halfway around the world, ups, downs, crack the egg: we mastered them all. Sigh.
My dad would play jacks with me. For money. Until my mom found out I was in debt to him for $6 and she made him stop. I was 7 years old.
