Worst Candy Ever Made
As a youngster, I recall seeing Sen-Sen at every checkout counter. Also, every adult I knew seemed to have a package of Sen-Sen in his or her pocket.
I was about eight years old when I chanced to ask what the stuff was. I remember being told that Sen-Sen was candy.
Of course, I asked if I could have some. I spit it out. Candy? Not in my opinion. It was disgusting. As a kid, I judged that Sen-Sen was the worst candy ever made.
A number of years later, I learned that Sen-Sen was primarily used to mask the smell of alcohol on a drinker's breath.
Sen-Sen is no longer on the market, I don't know why. Alcohol is still on the market.
