Milk Duds and Popcorn

As a little boy I grew up in downtown Savannah. I lived two blocks from three movie theaters. Tickets were twenty-five cents though when I first went the theater with the best (most trashy) double features charged only fifteen cents.
It was there that I bought Milk Duds, it was one of those candies that you never seemed to see elsewhere. Occasional promiscuity would turn my affections to Heath bars and Bit O’Honeys but it was to Milk Duds I returned.
I bought popcorn as well. Which should go in the mouth first, the popcorn on the candy was a conundrum I ever solved. Probably both were equally correct.
Last week, decades later, I bought a box of Milk Duds as I’d intended to for years. Sadly you can’t really go back to chocolate coated bits of caramel.
