Candy, candy, candy...
I love candy!
Candy is so yummy to my tummy
It makes me want to have more.
I love how sticky, soft, and sweet it is...
Especially the one-cent candies.
OMG, there is so much to explore
in the everlasting candy land shops!
When I went into my favourite tuck shop as a kid,
I observed everything very closely.
These candies were all in little tiny brown paper bags
priced at one cent, 5 cents, 25 cents, 50 cents, 75 cents and a dollar gave you much more because the dollar selection were not in brown paper bags at all. They were in the dollar surprise bags called the candy loot bags; you never knew what you were going to get inside them!
The tuck shop clerk was a person that I used to call the candy shop dream. He would laugh at my given name to him and said to me: "If you would like some specialty candy that's behind my counter, that's cool too."
My reply to him was:
Thank you, kind sir...I will see you again soon!
