Cheryl-
Thank you! You're such a nice ghoul.

I think I stumbled upon the Schlitz ad over at Rare Ads.com. I come across all kinds of stuff on my neverending quest for pop culture images!

I laughed when I first saw it because the first thought that came to mind was "Oh yes, and we all know the merits of getting loaded and carving a jack o'lantern with a sharp object." LOL!

Livi aka Crazy Mountain Woman-
Those were the days! I'm so glad someone else besides me remembers the black/orange red hots! My mother was a red hot fiend (as am I) and they were always around in abundance at Halloweentime, Valentine's Day (the heart-shaped ones) and Christmas (for decorating gingerbread men!). I really miss them as well. I wonder why such a great idea isn't still in production?

And the peanut butter kisses are still being made by Necco! I bought a fresh bag this year and last year!

Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)

I actually almost feel sick with nostalgia......aching inside for the "doog old days" when missing The Great Pumpking on tv meant a year without it, when people actually carved REAL jack o'lanterns and didn't get reusable foam ones, when trick or treating was on the 31st, in the dark, and you could accept a caramel apple or popcorn ball.

Thanks! And I am getting a bag of Mary Janes this morning.

Man, am I glad I bought those two cases of Schlitz to hand out to all the little ghouls and goblins tomorrow night. ;)
