They used to be called penny candy
because they cost
You took a handful, dropped them in a paper sack
And paid 13 pennies……..or 18 pennies, if you had big hands.
Today they cost nine and nine-tenths of a penny and come in a plastic bag that doesn’t make the same wonderful sound as a paper sack.
Does that make them pennies candy?
Not to be confused with Penny’s candy, in which case you won’t be eating them anyway. Unless she shares.
