Hi Jandi and Miss Sullivan. You both bring the best smile to me, and it is great that we can share in the fun and adventure of life. Maybe we will meet at Uncle Jakes corner candy store one day and have a large egg cream or frosted sassparilla and some old fashioned rock candiy. My best to you both, Wadey (Baron Von Drake)

Hi ! .....Haven't seen you in a while....I am so in the mood for a Drakes cake...or a Devildog....mmmm...good....

Did you ever have Bonomo's Turkish Taffy bars?

Oh...I remember....Bazooka Gum?...it was more popular then.....they have it now...here and there...but not as much..

The Bazooka gum came with a cartoon..like a little funny paper story....remember?

Man, do I remember! September 02, 2005 9:28 AM

Man, do I remember Turkish Taffy, Bazooka bubblegum (which can still be purchased like at 7/11 and other places--especially in the candy mix bags at halloween time!), astro pops, clark bars, Peanutbutter but no jelly (now I think they are the Butterfingers bars--but stiffer and dryer than the Peanutbutter but no jelly bars!).  Let's see what else do I remember? Carvel ice cream flying saucers (the chocolate/chocolate were my faves) and parfaits! Jreck subs, Carroll's club burgers, and I can't think of anything else! Now I'm hungry  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Oh dear, I forgot September 02, 2005 9:31 AM

Oh dear, I did forget one thing! My favorite ice cream treat from the ice cream man was called "Buried Treasure".   It was like a tutti frutti ice cream with a plastic stick.  The treasure, when you finished your ice cream was a little circus animal or something to do with the circus at the end of the stick.  One time I got this and my stick was upside down, so I saw my treasure before I even ate my ice cream! I miss that ice cream treat!  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Commercials September 02, 2005 2:54 PM

I don't remember the commercials for Carvels.  I know Tom Bodette for Motel 6 has an annoying voice, but I don't know about Crazy Eddie or Tom Carvel.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

TOM CARVEL HAD A VOICE LIKE ROCKS BEING CHEWED BY A PIT BULL AND CRAZEY EDDIE AN ELECTRONICS STORE IN THE 60s I THINK IT WAS IN MANHATAN. EVERY YEAR WOULD HAVE A BIRTHDAY CAKE FROM CARVEL ALSO WHEN I COULD WOULD STOP AT CARVEL STORE ON FLATBUSH AND AVE P.FOR A CONE  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Is Tom Carvel dead? Boy, I sure hope so, what with the things I am reading here. Mr. Carvel was a man's man who wasn't afraid to take on the big things such as Fudgie the Whale. Let's see today's "metrosexuals" come away from that without a scratch. I think Tom cut his teeth on a whaling ship, that he was able to so easily put on ice creatures from the briny deep.

(I am laughing as I write this and I hope you are too.)
