  • Loved these as a child always were allowed to get one when we went to the city. Had fun teaching this to a nephew who had never heard of these.. He loved drinking them though we made it abit different.

  • Loved these spiders as a kid growing up and did introduce them to my children. After reading this and getting my hopes up again, I must introduce them to my grandchildren – bet it will drive their parents wild, too.
