When I was a kid I used to hang out at my uncle's house a lot. The only two items of food I EVER saw in that house were hot dogs and circus peanuts. He ate those spongy fuckers by the dozen.

He's dead now, coincidence?

by the dozen is the only way to eat them, just eating one circus peanut is almost a contradiction in terms

Trick question; clowns were always creepy, people just didnt realize it yet. Go look up vintage clown pictures, they were actually more creepy before we tried to MAKE them creepy.

I might be more on my own with this, but I don't understand how people eat these goddamn things:



Maraschino cherries in general are vomit-worthy, but slapping cheap chocolate and some sugary spooge into the mix just makes it all worse.

okay my hypothesis about the banana flavor is wrong.

i don't know why i like circus peanuts. they have always seemed like, perhaps the perfect candy to me. they send me into raptures.

i almost never eat them. no interest in searching them out. but whenever they fall into my hands i am in heaven.

I'm a girl, and you're

I'm a fan of most unpopular candy.

Circus peanuts are okay, but I'd never actually seek them out. I love candy corn and those chalky conversation hearts and cadbury cream eggs though.

Black licorice can get hosed.

Thanks for reading.

Talking about meh old candy, I recently noticed that these things still exist.



And they've still got ugly bucktoothed kids on the box.



Sure that middle girl looks like a terrible Chinese stereotype but since she's surrounded by other kids with dental problems it doesn't seem quite as bad. Hell, the black(?) kid doesn't even have teeth. Clearly a cautionary tale against overindulgence in sugary treats.

i grew up with limited access to candy so i would always get all this leftover garbage candy.

i love every one of them even the chocolate cum bombs.

but sugar packing peanuts deserve national shame. tastes like something batman would pull out of his utility belt to use as an instant cement

my dad really liked circus peanuts and i guess he passed his like for terrible candy on to me because i think theyre kinda good. havent had any in like 10 years and now i kinda want something styrofoamy and vaguely banana.
