I think one of my favorite things in the whole world is candy. Candy is sweet, lifts the spirits and is a tantalizing morsel made to tickle our taste buds.
Through the years, I have tasted many kinds of candy and can recall the many varieties we used to have. When I was little, I would go down to the local grocery store and stand for hours in front of the candy counter, deciding what kind of candy I wanted to spend my few pennies on. Yes, back then you could get a piece or two of candy for a penny.
One kind of candy I have never cared for is licorice. At one time all licorice was black and tasted nasty to me. My taste buds were not tickled at all by that strong anise flavored candy.
