Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Candy Memories

My neighbor and I were talking about candy we enjoyed as a kid and it was pretty funny what we came up with. I have vivid memories of going to Grand Haven every Summer as a kid, and the thing I remember most was getting Bub's Daddy Sour Apple Bubble Gum sticks. They were huge and would last the weekend. We just had to be very careful to make sure we tucked them away good so they wouldn't get sand in them.
Here are a few of the other candies I enjoyed as a kid.

We called these dots, but apparently the correct name is "candy buttons."
I wonder how much paper we ate while enjoying these?

We called these Ju Ju Be candy, or Jujubes. They were like the gummy dots (not the ones above) all dried out. Kinda chewy, kinda not.

Candy Cigarettes. Right? Who thought this was a good idea? They had the candy stick version or the bubble gum variety.

Chuckles. Thus began my love for gummy candies. Except the black ones. I always gave those away.

Slo Poke suckers. They were worth their money just for the amount of time it took you to eat one. I remember being able to order super big ones too.

Chunky. A chunk of chocolate filled with peanuts and raisins. It doesn't get any better than these.
