    Yowsers! I'd forgotten about those. Some sweet syrup was inside and you were to spit out the wax. I think?

    Oh, you were supposed to spit the wax out?

    The wax was flavored, like gum. You chewed it and then spit it out, like gum.
    The things with the sweet syrup inside were "Pop Bottles". You bit the top off, sucked out the 1/4 ounce of syrup and some chewed the wax and some tossed it out. Sometimes they came in tiny pop bottle carriers and had 4 colors/flavors: yellow, green, orange and red. I'm assuming lemon, lime, orange and cherry. They were called Nik-L-Nips

    ^^^ Oh yes, now I get it. Remember Now-a-Laters wrapped candies? Still available but smaller. I loved the artificial bright yellow banana flavored.

    Known now as 'Anni-hi-lators' as they'll pull any filling out of your teeth!

    Yup. My buddy who still lives up in Rogers City confirmed it was Mr. Ed's IGA.

    I just thought of another: Pork Rinds!

    Better Made makes the best. Just think, parts of the pig are those made from. Yet they are so light and fluffy. Used to love them!

    Remember the little packet of hot sauce that used to come inside the bag?

    pork rinds, chicarrones, big down here in South FL with the Latinos. Local store has 3 different brands. But if not marked "hot", bring your own hot sauce.

    When I was young my father used to slaughter 1/2 pig and make "meats" out it... such as Head Cheese... a disgusting European delicacy that I mercifully never sampled.

    When we were young my siblings and I used to call it "Pig Jello", and we'd stay a mile away when my parents ate it. I'm sure it's probably not good or you... once you read the ingredients.

    I've had 'Hog Head Cheese' as it was called in my neighborhood.

    Maybe in early 80's... Never again. Just congealed junk.

    I've NEVER had chitterlins (sp?), never will.

    But had my parents made them I would have. But they did not. THANKFULLY!

    I always wondered how can you tell when chitterlings are clean.

    I tried them once. They taste worse than they smell. Never again.

    swizzle sticks. lemon heads. Mike & Ike. Now & Laters.
    I never "got" the appeal of Sno Caps. anyone else?
    Butterfinger candy bar. Whatchamacallit.

    I can't eat sliders like I once did. I once could eat six in a row, but no more.

    I look up the calorie count of various things at restaurants nowadays and I'm blown away. Just for the coffee-beverage industry alone: wow.
    When I was a kid I liked "blizzards" from Dairy Queen. I look at the calorie counts now, and it's just so depressing. I haven't had one in I don't know how many years.

    Like trying to remove quills from a porcupine I would imagine. No way to verify 100%... only hope for clean-er I suppose. No thank you.

    Rather than spending hours cleaning hog fecal guts, I prefer slicing and cutting fruit for my juicer.

    That's a pain too (especially the clean up)!! But far healthier results!

    After all of these yucky posts of disgusting food... here's something I have had many times, but it's probably not good for you... but when you taste it... who cares?!

    Black Forest Kirsch Torte....
