Guess the Candy! UPDATED!

I played a little guessing game on my friend's blog http://thesilentpodium.blogspot.com/2008/12/meme-phocus.html and I won! So now it's my turn to play it in my blog and since I like the idea of a candy theme, here is a piece of a picture of one of my favorite candies. It is a variation of a well-known candy that has been around since the 1960s. This variation has been around at least since I was a kid and I'm *gulp* 30 years old. Ooh, this is fun!

You can take a guess and try to be specific. I will reveal the complete picture after I have gotten enough people to try to figure it out. Ready.....GO!

*UPDATE* Wow, look at all the guesses tumbling in! Haha, ok, really. The winner is my sister, Prolifegirly! The candy is... Chewy Sweetarts, cuz I like 'em. The real question is: how often do I eat them?
I haven't eaten them in over a decade I'm sure. It's a dental thing. The thought of coating my teeth in sugar keeps me away from all candy for 99.9% of my waking life. Ok, Samantha, you're the winner so it's your turn!

Looks like a bubble gum flavored candy. Or it could actually be bubble gum?

Prolifegirly said...

sweet tarts? or maybe necco?

My first guess was Bottlecaps, but then I remember the Bottlecap faces look more goofy like Nerds. My second guess was Gobstoppers but the text didn't seem right. Unless it was the edge of the "T" even so, I don't remember it being capitalized.

My final guess if we could only be limited to one and without any research is Jawbreakers!

Iris: I can see why you would guess bubble gum!
Sam: you are GOOD! almost perfect.
G: all good guesses. The happy face of this candy is probably used on all those candies you mentioned, I think. Or something similar.
Farhan: Thank you so much for visiting my blog anyways!
Husband: thank you, too, even though you just came here to make Iris laugh :D

I came here to see the update. I was like AWWWWWWWWWWW I've seen that before! Then I read everyone's guesses and laughed so hard at Jose's guess. Then, I read Sarah's final comment and felt so predictable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAO!

But I really did giggle at Jose's Pelon Pelorico candy comment! I used to eat those :D
