    You actually LIKE those? MAN! I liked the first few seconds of the taste of horehound sticks (with that dusty powdery substance)....but man o man when the REAL taste kicked in! I thought I did something BAD!


    Speakinh of "horehond" and being bad, I feel horrible for how we used to treat these twin sisters back in high skool! Yep we used to yell in the halls "run! Here comes the hore - hounds!"

    I hope they arent members on a f! No one would remember that except those involved....and I do feel bad. We three became friends before the sr year....but they STILL LOOKED LIKE....

    When it came to medicine - the lousier the taste, the better the medicine was for you.
    Cod Liver Oil anyone? If it tasted good, it didn't work.

    These little bites of chocolatey heaven were the SO freakin' good. If you've never tried them, trust me - you're missing out. When I was a kid, almost every convenience store had a plastic tub of these at the check-out counter. They do still make 'em, but they are really hard to find. I've had to resort to ordering them online a couple of times.

    On the other hand, a popular OTC medicine was Paregoric(sp?). It is camphorated tincture of opium.

    I still see all the colors, man . . . far out, groovy.

    Oh man, loved these. I used to buy them on a "pad"? Sort of like 10 to 12 bits o honeys on a paper slab wheee u could peel one off and pig-out!

    ABSOLUTELY! Horehound drops are great.

    Google "salt Liquorice and order some of that. It is salted black Liquorice and it takes getting use to. There is, actually, a world of different types of Liquorice out there. Including a carbonated beverage (or once was, someone Google, quick) that was flavored like chocolate Liquorice.

    Very nice stuff indeed.

    Yep, but the individually wrapped are much easier to open (the wax paper inside the bar would get stuck and tear off with the candy) and carry!

    Now I want me some BOH. Any form or size. And a large glass of milk.

    Trust me on this, a BOH is great with milk. So are malted milk balls, Snickers, Hershey's Kisses, Butterfingers and beef jerkey.

    And it was hard as a rock! Not at all like today's over-processed over-preserved imitation bubble gum. Tasted so much better back then.

    Bubblegum:
    It was Fleers or TOPS and it had baseball cards inside.

    Dogs have a larger variety in their diet today. You can see this in disintegrating dog poop in the park. Mittens, pieces of plastic, you name it.

    I did have a bubblegum comment but I think I can blend it in wirh the Stinky-Stinkster post (which is true ...they dont "make" it like they used to...lol:


    Oh, my bubblebgum post: remember when it seemed that bubblebgum went cheap on us? Regarding "consistency", remember those flat bubble gumn"sheets" that sort of crumble as u bite down? Felt stale?

    They don't use ash in the food anymore as a filler.

    Some of the meat that goes into dog / cat food is a higher grade than goes into some cheap brands of pies and sausages.....trust me I used to work in an abattoir.
