I don't remember either of those being available in Canada, but I remember wax lips and candy cigarettes. I also remember making pull-taffy at home with my brother and our friends.

I like this photo very much. You get a double dose of attractiveness because of the reflection.

Great photo. I do remember Necco's and giant taffy. Both were also available at the movie theater along with flicks, guess whats, and dots.
