Judy Spooner Viewpoint: How sweet the tooth shows your age


The candy you prefer depends on how old you are, I discovered last week.

While at the grocery store, I stopped to talk to shoppers and asked them what their favorite candy was as they were growing up.

I discovered that people 60 years and older, including me, remember eating conventional candy such as Hershey's chocolate bars.

As we got older, we didn't try any of the candy our grandchildren asked us to buy such as Laffy Taffy.
