Remember them?  Oh how I would love it when I would manage to get one.  I’d put it on and wear it intact as long as I could.  But eventually the candy was too much to resist and so I’d pull the necklace up and bite off a piece or two.  And I’d nibble again and again.  Before long, my neck would be sticky and candy colored from trying to wear the necklace and eat it at the same time.  Eventually, I’d take it off and finish the candy, savoring each piece until I was left with the sticky piece of elastic.

And I was happy with this simple childhood pleasure.  Funny the things you remember.  I wonder if I would like it if I ate one now…

No candy was provided to me by either company.  I would eat it if some was and be sure to fully disclose the fact.
