Gold stars remind me of Sunday school in damp church basements. My siblings, Tina, Dorie, Charles and I got these for perfect attendance in Sunday School. My children, James Kenneth and Jessica Diana got these in preschool as well as Sunday School.
Brach's Royals ad - These were chewy, like tootsie rolls, but softer & they came in all different flavors. I remember going to the grocery store & getting a bag of Brach's Mix candy. I loved these, ate them often.
