Gob Stopped

I was in Target, buying the previously mentioned Altoids Gum.

They also had "movie theater size" boxes of Wonka & other candy.

Not that I've ever seen a 7 ounce movie theater.

Although some of the screens in the multiplexes have come close.

So, I bought Spree, Nerds & Gobstoppers.

That's significantly more than a pound of sugar-coated sugar.

I note, though, that the Gobstoppers are a lot smaller than they used to be.

Previously, they were the size of gumballs. When I used to keep a jar of gumballs on my desk, I used to joke that I would mix in Gobstoppers with them.

Now, they're the size of marbles.

Not the shooter kind.
