The Challenge: Eat or drink something today that brings back childhood memories.
Two words: Swedish Fish! They were like the Cadillac of gummy candy growing up. We rarely got them but when we did, I savored every bite. I honestly haven’t had them since childhood and I’m ashamed that I have deprived myself of such joy all of these years. I have to admit what I was originally looking for was shoestring red licorice. I thought that was so neat that you could tie it in a bow and then eat it. Since we are in a different state tonight (sunny FL) I wasn’t sure where to even start to shop around. The Swedish Fish are a great 2nd choice. Boy do they get stuck in your teeth, though.
I strolled down the candy aisle at a supermarket in Tampa looking for a package of childhood memories. I found them in a box of Sour Patch Kids. As a wee lad, I loved these little buggers. Most grown-ups I knew didn’t know why I’d subject myself to such a horrible abomination disguised as candy. Sour Patch Kids truly are an assault on the ol’ tastebuds; I couldn’t get enough of ’em as a kid. It’s been a long time since I’ve had one, but they still make me pucker.
