The apple juice parody is for those mini cartons filled with bubble gum nuggets, not an actual carton of juice.  They made it in several flavors over the years.  Might even still be made, not sure.

I know what the candy is. What i'm trying to figure out is where you saw candy stores in the 80's.

Not a throwback pure candy store if thatís what youíre asking.  Newsstands, coffee shops, convenience stores, anyplace that had the best selection of candy items, thatís all.  I use the term loosely.  Itís what we called those types of stores back then.

After the last of the local candy-shops closed, I remember a time between candy-shops and mini markets that drug stores were big purveyors of CANDY.

(side note) I drove by the, now long closed, meat market that my mom bought my first pack of Wackys. Its now a run down residence, BUT the door to the place is still the same.

Anytime I go back to where I grew up in Westlake Village in Southern California, I remember the good times we had as a kid visiting a candy store called Shawís Candy. We used to buy giant jaw breakers that would not even fit in your mouth. We loved those things.

Soooo very excited for OS9! With these coming I'm kinda hoping Topps wraps up the weekly series. I'm tired of the long wait for weeks old sets and was not happy with the "sticky"cards I received. (Topps never responded to my two emails about that.) So having retired from the weekly series, which I enjoyed immensely initially, I'm more than ready for OS9. Thanks for the previews!

We had a few independent pharmacies with good candy sections too, come to think of it.  One was pretty good for cards too, being the only place I remember seeing 1980 Creature Feature and certain oddball early 80ís sports series.

Aside from places like Woolworth's and McCrory's, we had a few "Five and Dime" type stores that were great for candy and sometimes cards.  There was one right in Centereach called Smiles that I loved.  Old wooden floor that creaked, and stocked with all different kinds of stuff.  The last local pharmacy that sold lots of other items was awesome!  They sold ANS Wackys, candy, and I even found the Wacky backpacks, lunchbox and flip flops there.  Unfortunately, they closed a few years ago.

Sadly, that option disappeared a while ago  :sad:  You could create a Spoiler Thread.

one option is to just post the url of the image on a hosting site, such as postimages.org

go to that website, upload image. Copy the url, then paste it in the message here

like this:  https://postimg.cc/jW363mdC

(i.e. don't use the "Add image to post" function on this forum)
