Too bad the flavor is gone as soon as you open it.


Yup, super sweet. But only chewable for a couple minutes at best. And I just realized, those satellite candys with the beads inside were actually CALLED Satellite wafers. All I remember is that I thought they were pretty bad.



And I completely forgot about THESE things. They used to make a hard candy whistle that you could actually play a tune on if you had any semblence of musical prowess. It was an actual instrument, but it was so sweet you'd end up sucking on it until it dissolved to the point it couldn't play more then a super high pitched whistle in short order. The biggest problem with this thing is that the shape it was countoured to ended up dissolving in a reeeeallly uneven and awkward way, leading to very sharp edges that if you weren't careful could slice your tongue up in a hurry. But these suckers were delicious. I don't know if they still make them anymore. I haven't seen them in like... a decade.

Edit: You know what, I thought Necco wafers went out of business. But a google search reveals they reopened their business last year. Here I thought they'd be gone forever. I was never a big fan of that candy...like... at all. Many of the flavorings they used on them were....questionable in my eyes.
