Cosmic Candy and Space Dust

Here is some of my favorite candy growing up. I have many packages of vintage candy, but the designs on these are by far the most interesting. I wish I could blow up the images and frame them on my wall. I may just do that at some point.

    I was always a chocolate and chewy caramel kind of candy gal still missed stuff like this that I would guess is kind of tart tasting. But I love these for the graphics, especially the Elephant Man looking Cosmic one, and love that they’re packaged like Kool-aid or Pop Rocks.

    You’ve taken me back in a good way. I loved how this stuff crackled and simmered in my mouth as soon as it hit my tongue, like it was getting ready to explode. Felt like a lab experiment that you eat. I always enjoyed eating space dust while I played with my glass clackers.
