MY CHUPA CHUPS STORY
I bought some tonight at the grocery store. First time in years, just as sweet as I remembered them. 😋
- •When I was a kid, CHUPA CHUPS were my favorite candy.
- •It all started when a nice fireman let my kindergarten class pick a flavor from their display after a firehouse tour.😍
- •I loved them then, and got one whenever I could growing up.
- •Fast forward 35 years or so, to a few weeks ago in Honduras.
- •I saw a giant Chupa Chup in the duty-free shop and a wave of memories came flooding back.It had 15 regular suckers inside.
- •I squealed a little and mentioned to the sweet Honduran teenage sales clerk that they had been my favorite as a kid.
- •He replied, "Oh, so they've been around a long time?"😡
- •I said, "Well, this was the 1970s, so I guess..."
- •He interrupted, "WHOOOAAA, that's a LONG time ago!!"😡😡
- •He did not make a sale that day.
