Dum Dum anyone?

Dum Dum anyone? I just had one for the first time in at least ten years. And now I know why they are so small and what the mystery is all about.

I swear to you, every single bank in this area hands these out at the teller window.

dum dums were one of my main trick-or-treat goals. Their small size made them perfect for use in school. Butterscotch all the way. I remember collecting wrappers for a while...but i don't remember what For....hmmm.

The only reason to accompany Mom to the grocery store as a kid was to get a Dum Dum from the check-out cashier. Grape were my favorite, but us kids were always trying to get a "??" one, even though they looked (and tasted) like drek. I guess it was just the excitement of the mystery flavor.

Got a haircut today, and they gave me a Dum-Dum - nice treat! Best flavor of all: CREAM SODA!

Worst Flavor: Butter Popcorn.

Dum Dum != Jelly Belly, they need to figure that out. Quit trying to be so darned high-falutin and make more Cream Soda and Orange.

I'll add another vote for Cream Soda, but my all-time favourite cherry ANYTHING is a Cherry Dum Dum.

Sidenote: Anyone ever catch the episode of Talk Soup hosted by John "Skunkboy" Henson in which they featured a clip of someone's pet monkey on tv sucking away on a Dum Dum? I've searched high and lo for a .wav of Henson yelling "Work that Dum Dum! YEAH!" but to no avail.
