Do you remember those Lifesaver hard candies in the 80's?

Do you remember those Lifesaver candies in the 80's? During Christmas season they would sell it Lifesaver Sweet Story Book that you give out to your family and friends having six pieces rolls of candies inside. We use to give out the flavors we don't like to eat to our families who is next to you in case you wanted to skip and go to the next flavor. I remember my mom would always ask for the color green and yellow Lifesavers hard candies. My sister would only eat the orange color. My dad would eat the color red. Carmina was able to find the childhood Lifesavers hard candy from  Body Rockers Ph  Shopee Philippines for PHP 59.00 ($1.18) not including shipping and handling. Too bad living in a humid climate our Lifesavers hard candy became sticky hard to separate each one. The taste is the same just the printing of Lifesavers have melted away from the heat. I had placed it in the refrigerator when it had arrived. Note: Carmina is not selling or advertising for Lifesavers hard cand

Bangkok Sweet Tamarind made in Thailand

Long time ago we had a visitor who had visited us from the United States she wasn't Filipino but Vietnamese. Her son is married to a Filipina and the mother went to visit the Philippines for the first time. The only thing that my cousin's mother in-law brought back from the United States from her stay was Moniegold Bangkok Sweet Tamarind made in Thailand. It was one of her favorite candies that she wanted to give away to her family and friends a token from her vacation. I was told Asian food sold in the United States are expensive to bring something back in return was a benefit from her vacation. Carmina was able to purchase Moniegold Bangkok Sweet Tamarind made in Thailand from  Body Rockers Ph  Online Shopee Philippines for PHP 281.00 ($5.62) 800g. It is also my favorite Moniegold Bangkok Sweet Tamarind made in Thailand that brings back memories from my trip with my mom and Auntie Edna with me.
