There are certain things that remind us of our childhood. The Banana Split does it for me. I don't know when the last time I actually had one. I do remember having a lot of them as a kid. They were the keeper candy I'd find in my Trick-R-Treat bag or in my stocking on Christmas morning.
If I had change jingling in my pocket and I was wanting to fill a bag with penny candy at Cartee's (a mom & pop store in my old neighborhood), you'd bet there'd be a handful coming home. I remember having to go to the dentist because of eating one once. It made a filling come out. Do you remember Banana Splits? What were some of your favorite penny candies of your youth?
