Maybe now... not when I was a kid. Only the ones invented by a dentist to rip out your fillings and force you to come back to his office :)

I grew up on this crap:

All my mom ever gave me to drink was Hi-C, Kool-Aid, and little sugary-drink containers in my school lunch.  So. Much. Sugar.  It's a wonder I didn't end up with diabetes.

Nowadays most of what I drink is water, with an occasional beer or glass of wine.

They remind me of Opal Fruits, only I don't think they're called that anymore. Soft but chewy.

I also loved putting these guys in the freezer and trying to chip a tooth:

I grew up with two different kinds—the white sugar ones with a colored red tip, and the paper-wrapped chocolate ones.  And the funny thing is they never made me want to smoke.

Just a fillling? I had one of these things rip out a whole tooth.

I've been traumatized about Now and Laters since. I mean, I'm sure I would've lost that tooth soon anyways... but as a kid chewing down into a piece of candy, then opening your jaw to a gory ripping sound and the taste of blood: NOT a fun experience.
