It is all a matter of perspective, I thing you are one of the best things ever at times (circus, baseball games, bars :o)

Those things were nasty! I think they were invented by accident during a science experiment.

GAK! You are the worst thing ever. I'm a little nauseous now because you make candy corn look good, Mr. Artificial Gross-Colored "Peanut Candy." Ick Ick Ick. -Cin

my fraternal grandmother {she always liked my brother best} loved those tacky ass things, along with peeps in the spring and sandwich spread with olive loaf between two slices of wonder bread {cuz it's white}. that particular grandmother gave me the creeps more than once. you may remember i wrote a longish entry {a short story} about her, her death {on the toilet}, her viewing, and her funeral {with the damn squeaky toy in the coffin}. see what you've triggered now?

I haven't been to a circus in so long I wouldn't know about you.

No, I LOVE those things. How can you not love something that is orange but tastes like banana flavoring and is called a peanut, it is so logical......okay maybe not. But I would eat them until I was sick. That is about 4 of them.

i mentioned to tony that i had never tried these and we got some and failed to notice the bag was slightly open- so i went to take a bite and almost lost a tooth- the next time i tried them i though they tasted like a pepto bismo flavored peep that had sat out of the box too long.

yuck!

Depends - boiled, salted or something the elephant decided to use as spittoon? (Hugs)Indigo

My dad always bought those things - that was always my clue to avoid them. He had strange tastes when it came to sweets. (nice art!)

Ewww...I used to love them, but like so many other candy varieties, say 'Peeps', they are not so biodegradable as we would think...I saw a detective show one day, they found circus peanuts in his pockets, and then figured out who the killer was...by the dried up c. peanuts they found in an attic years later...the rats would not even eat them!

Dude, do you have any idea how much I've spent on dental work in my old age?

My Dad used to like those things, and I always thought they were incredibly gross. I don't think I could stand the smell now, if I ever happened to get a whiff. Bleahhh!

almost 50 but not quite said...
