I feel all nostalgic thinking about Texan bars and parma violets, we also ate candied cigarettes complete with red tips and after a few pretend puffs they were munched down with much enjoyment. I was born in the late 60's Anyone else have any candy nostalgia?

parma violets, spangles, everlasting sticks, Victory 'V's (consumed many while waiting for train to school - I think they were made of chloroform) Licorice pipes, tom thumb drops.
born in the late 50's (when you could buy all of the above and still get change out of a ha'penny )

you can still buy the fake cigarettes sweets, they come in a spiderman box! ditto black jacks and fruit salads and the sherbet dib dabs.
parma violets are gross
there is a website that sells all this kind of stuff, i foget the name of it, but have ordered from them before and i am lucky that we have a little old fashioned sweet shop near us that sells it all and you get to buy them by weight etc and they come in little paper bags, great when i want to treat the kids-myself...
