    I remember those quite well. My mom used to buy them all the time.

    I enjoyed them a lot. A dark, rich, powerful herbal flavor. But if a friend would ask to try one, I’d warn him strongly against it. He’d insist, pop one in his mouth, then immediately spit it out. There’s a lesson in that.

    Horehound is an acquired taste.

    Thanks for sharing this, Jim. There’s some fond memories there for a few of us!

    When I was little, I told my dad in great detail at length about a movie I’d seen while he listened patiently. Years later I asked him why he put up with me doing things like that, and he said because he could tell I enjoyed talking about it.

    Another time we all went to a play that was very silly. Being only 8 years old, I laughed and laughed. Afterward I asked him if he liked the play, and he said, “I liked watching you enjoying it.”

    Never heard of Horehounds. Are they like half a HoHo?

    I thought it was a derogatory remark about some guy and his morals.

    My dad wouldn’t be able to impart that lesson with Snickers; the Snickers were for him.

    It puts those nasty Werther’s Original candies into perspective.

    This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.

    I loved horehound as a kid! It was sold in a little retro-penny candy stand in the Stroh’s ice cream parlor I used to frequent. It was like rebelling against the Snickers hegemony!
