Hummmmmm....good idea David. I never even thought about this taste in a drink. This is one aspect I've really enjoyed on LTH...all the information on the taste of drink.
Speaking of candy from days gone by, I recently purchased a SlowPoke. Wow things have changed. There was no chocolate coating, no stick (the seam was there where the stick use to be), and the caramel was soft. They made it too easy.
You can still get that sweet tart taste in sweet tart valentine candy that can be found on the grocery shelf.
