Wedding Friday :: Need YOUR help :: 1980's Candy

One of our favors for our wedding, is we plan to have a candy buffet. I don't want to do the "traditional" color of your wedding candy, so Aaron and I were discussing that we would have candy from the 1980's. The time frame when we were growing up.
I've already ordered our favorite must haves!!! It was really fun to be taken back. I was and still am a candy whore! I love candy. It's terrible. Aaron... not so much!

So, What I want to know is YOUR favorite candy or the Candy you LOVED as a child!
I did this same thing on FACEBOOK. Since I can't share with you the candy we've chosen already, I will share some of the candies that my FB friends have said...
Some, in which are the candies we have bought. [yay]

Pop Rocks
Fun Dip
Ring Pops
Charleston Chews
Sugar Daddys
Bottle Caps
Large Chewy Sweet Tarts
The Candy Dots on a paper
Wax bottles w/ the juice in it

Go ahead - Add some more...
We are NOT finished purchasing so We need YOUR help!

Great idea! My favorites were the Razz...something or others. The candy that turns to gum. (Whats the name??????) Also the squeeze pops. Most of my friends think they are disgusting, but I loved them. It's like goo in a tube!

What were those candies called....fizz pops or something like that? They came in different colours like red, purple and orange. They were individually wrapped, and they came in a long strand of them. They fizzed in your mouth.

Anyone know which ones I'm talking about? I loved those!

Oh, and Big Feet and Hot Lips!!

wow.. lots of candy.. now Im having a sugar fit!

I was born in 1980.. the candy I remember the most, were those fake cigarettes - the gum with the paper wrapped around! Great thing for kids right? haha

also the penny gum... fortune? I think.. umm, bubble tape, that other gum in the red,white blue wrappers (pal?), whatchamacallits, brown cows,

think thats all. How did I not weigh 500 lbs as a kid??
