|Candy buttons were my favorite |
back in the days.
Today I had a random thought on my ride home from my freelancing gig, candy buttons. You know candy buttons -- the hard little disks made of sugar in pink, yellow, orange and sometimes blue. They were sold on strips of white paper that resembled a cash register receipt.
Candy buttons were colorful dots kids had to eat directly off the paper. It was inevitable you would get tiny wads of paper stuck in your mouth. You didn't care, you were young and the button candy was so appealing to the eye. There was something so pretty about it.
