Sweet Tooth Heaven

Old-fashioned candy stores may be a thing of the past, but this array of goodies in one of the concourses at Rosedale Center should warm the heart of any small child.

ADDED LATER: It just occurred to me that I could have added an old classic Ogden Nash aphorism: "Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker!"

  7. I remember these as a kid. They were always situated by the door of the grocery store. I always had to ask my parents to put in a penny so I could turn the knob.

  8. Hi Kate - this array pleases the eye, but confuses the palate. Too many choices. I almost forgot about those machines! So American, it was the first time I ever saw it.

  9. I don't think I could find anything like that here anymore! Maybe somewhere outside of the city. If the dispensers are glass -they'd be smashed - sad state of affairs!

  11. I have never seen this many machines in one place before. Our little town has a "candy" store and that's all they sell. And it somehow manages to stay open.

  15. I like Nash way better than candy - no sweet tooth here. Nash also wrote:

    The one-L lama, he's a beast.
    The two-L llama, he's a priest.
    But I'm willing to bet
    A fine silk pyjama
    That you'll never find
    A three-L lllama.
