Wax Lips, licorice laces, 5 Cent chips
Remember what you could buy for a dime in the 60s. The greatest thrill was finding an empty pop bottle, trading it in, and getting 2 cents to buy candy at Bud's in Crawford Park.
We could buy black balls, jube jubes and other penny candy at 3 for a cent.
Bottles of pop were ten cents. Popsicles were five cents and in those days they had great flavors not like now. Remember the wax lips, belly button candies. licorice laces - the green ones were terrific. Fizzies. Mallo Rolls. Remember those little Weston pies for a dime.
Archie Comic Books were 12 cents. WOW.
