When I was little, my mom would give my brother and me each a quarter to buy candy at the (then Daytons) candy counter. We would walk up and ask for a “quarter’s worth” of our candy of choice. For Clay it was usually sour red cherry balls, and I think mine were Sour Patch kids.
I was recently swept up in nostalgia when I can across the candy shop and reminisced the memories from my childhood. It hadn’t changed at all. The lady working asked me if I needed anything, and thinking that I couldn’t buy anything worth a quarter anymore, said no, but proceeded to tell her my tale.
She told me that I could certainly still get a quarter’s worth of candy. I dug in my purse for the change, and below is what I got. (With tax, the total came to $0.26)! It was quite fun. And delicious!
