Dum dums are lil round pops that are just the right size for a child. Or even an adult who wants a marble sized zap of sugar and flavor.
Root beer was my favorite, altho butterscotch ran a close second. I think those are two of the oldest flavors, tho there were other original flavors that have also stood the test of time.
I don't remember ever buying a dum~dum. I never turned in the wrappers for rebates. But I always inspect the waxed paper, flattening it, as tho this time, I might save it.
Dum dums have been around over sixty years. Lots of kids have eaten these treats over years and I suspect that a few adults have had more than their fair share too!
I think next time I'm at the bank, I'll ask for one.
