Milk duds at the movie theater

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.


I freakin’ love Milk Duds. When they make their way into my greedy clutches I cannot stop eating them.

My taste for candy faded in my mid-teens. I don’t know why - just stopped eating it.

My big food vices are starches and anything fried in batter (typical for a Southerner).

I like fried things and starches, but what is really attractive to me is anything that is both fatty and spicy, e.g., Indian, Thai, Mexican.

Since I’ve been disallowed salt and many spices and vegetables I’m relying more and more on various hot peppers for flavor.
