Nostalgic sweets and more

Ah, we love nothing more than to turn the big band music station on the TV (that's channel 435 on our Comcast dial), flip through The Vermont Country Store catalog and imagine that we're in another era. They have goodies like "Gee, Your Hair Smells Terrific" shampoo and the original Snoopy Sno-Cone machine. They even ask for your suggestions for beloved beauty products or old timey foods that you have a hard time finding now. They have a big selection of some sweets that you probably used to enjoy as a kid and might not have thought about for awhile such as Sugar Daddy, Necco Wafers, Mary Jane, Chuckles, Now and Later, Slo Pokes, Mallow Cup, Bun Bars, and Zagnut. Do any of these sugary delights bring back memories? Is there another treat from your childhood that you liked to find again? Locally, a good place to find these is at the Noblesville Logan Village Mall. There is a room up front with lots of nostalgic candy (and some good birch beer in the cooler).
