Little sugar addicts

To the editor:

Reading Bob Seidenstein’s column on his childhood sugar addiction reminded me of my own visits to the candy store when I was in grade school. A dime could buy a lot in those days, but I still couldn’t afford to spend hastily. Much thought went into whether to get a Mars bar or an Almond Joy.

Alas, I often had no money at all. Even then, however, I couldn’t deny my sweet tooth. I’d take a slice of Wonder bread, slather it with butter and sprinkle (or dump) white sugar on top. My friends and I, not being clever, called the confection “Bread, Butter and Sugar.” Perhaps Bob knows what I’m talking about. If not, I encourage him to try it.
