I want candy

I was craving a particular type of candy this afternoon. I don’t know the actual name, but it’s these chewy, coin-shaped, candies with a hard candy shell and a sour, fruit flavor. I used to get a handful of them from one of those little machines at Santa Monica Place. Today, I suddenly remembered that there is a candy store in the mall here. I went over and bought 1/4 pound bag for $3. I just about finished the bag.

My tongue is killing me!
