they're baaaaaack!

the big ones are back!

we turned the corner yesterday and found the display...and both squealed "oh em gee!"

for years, i have regaled with memories of the big lipsmackers, so much in fact that they are probably on the topshelf with the land of the lost and soultrain. what was your favorite flavor? mine was sour grapes which i could only describe to the princess as grape bubble yum flavor. sadly, they didn't have sour grapes, but we picked up dr. pepper, bubble gum, strawberry kiwi, vanilla and cotton candy.

oh em gee!
we hightailed it back to get a package of snowballs to celebrate. forget roses, diamonds and fancy cars. bring me a snowball and honey, you are in like flynn.

Oh, Dawn! Snowballs were my favorite treat when I was a kid. My Dad used to save them for me from his lunch bucket! And I'd TOTALLY forgotten about the big Lip Smackers...you SO ROCK!

Oh, yay! I hope that the giant ones make it to Canada. Um, embarrasingly, I still do have my giant Dr. Pepper one. In a box with my yearbooks. It tastes a bit funky though......

Ok, I apparently missed the lip smacker craze the first time around but I do remember snowballs and ding dongs went well together. :)

dawn - i can relate to your spaz over the big smackers! i found their website earlier this year and got the 10-pack of flavors. fave is strawberry, closely followed by peppermint (but the biggies don;t come in that flavor, drats!)

reminds me of my first kiss. :)
