When we were little, we drank coke (or cherry coke!) with a Twizzler as a straw. I’m sure we enjoyed them other times, but THAT is what I remember most about Twizzlers as a kid. It was such a special treat, having soda AND candy…it rarely happened. Isn’t it funny the things that stick with us? Now, at 38, we don’t often buy candy for the kids (or ourselves) but Twizzlers is often one I do purchase- lower in fat and I like the light, fruity taste. Plus, it’s super fun to drink with a Twizzler straw. If you haven’t done it, well, then I guess you better go try it. I’ll wait.
