I don't know why I liked it as a kid. Because it was sugar? Anyway if I eat too much, and that isn't much, it does weird things to my tongue. Did it do that when I was a kid too? I don't remember. Maybe I didn't notice.
Canadians have a Crunchie Bar which is chocolate covered sponge toffee. I don't mind that and it's the rare occasion where I feel chocolate inproves something. Still, I didn't really notice I didn't like the toffee until I ate it alone this past week.
The older I get the more I eat like an old person. Pretty soon I'll be ordering a small, black, decaf coffee, regular untoasted egg salad sandwiches (and complain about how hard the bun is) and old fashion plain donuts at Tim Hortons.
