    Just Like Dad Candy Cigarettes. I didn't know they still made these. I remember them from when I was a kid. As an adult I see it's a HORRIBLE idea though.

    HA! Candy Cigarettes! I remember these! ~ I loved these! I wonder how many kids started smoking the real thing because of these...

    Just another reason why we retro kids were bad-asses. Protect us from smoke? Oh hell no! Adults were training us to imitate them. Someone else wrote:"Candy Cigarettes and I've never smoked the real ones."

    80s food - Candy Cigarettes. My favorite was the 'puff' you could do in the beginning to blow out some candy dust like real smoke. Gosh if these things were around today...just imagine the lawsuits.

We had these EVERY Christmas at my Grandma and Grandpas. The peanut shaped/flavored were my favorite.

Remember these?! Fruit-flavored candy sugar in fruit-shaped bottles. I used to LOVE these!

...well, not ALL 8 flavors are delicious--the chocolate and licorice flavors can take a hike, but those purple clove ones? NOW those are worth buying the whole pack for. I still buy these every year to put in the kids' shoes on New Year's Eve (what? Santy Bogus doesn't come to your house on New Year's Eve and leave candy in the shoes by the fireplace? This must be a southern mountain thing.)

My Daddy wasn't a carpenter by trade, but he was good at building and repairing things and he always used one of these rulers. I still have it.

Oh Tart n Tinys where have you gone? I may never get a chance to beat my tiny candy stacking record again... Sigh.
