Satellite Wafers Memories
I was in elementary school, back in the 60's. NYC , midtown Manhattan. Right across the street from the back of the school was a small candy store.
My friends and I would put our money together and run there after school. The store was small, but inside it had candy galore. Big jars next to each other on the shelves.
My favorite was the flying saucers. The wafer like candy with the little balls of sweetness inside. It seems like I was the only one of my friends who liked them. They told me it tasted like the host you got at church. Anyway I always got those and candy cigarettes. Strands of shoestring licorice and buttons candy were my second choices. I use to like to tie the licorice in knots and eat it, don't ask why. I remember doing the same thing some years later too.
Pixie sticks were O.K I would take one if a friend offered, and those little wax bottles of liquid what ever... Along with wax lips. Us girls use to form the wax into
Fingernails and make believe we had long nails. We also use to buy juicyfruit gum and wrigleys spearmint gum and make a long chain from the wrappers.
