Atomic Fireballs

Atomic Fireballs

The Atomic Fireballs is a classic jawbreaker that has been around since the 1950s. I remember walking to the local gas station with my best friends just to get a fireball. This hot and spicy confection was our favorite treat, and perfectly priced at a nickel. Once we would get our stash, we would race back to the house, and sit with big glasses of ice water ready for our Atomic Fireball stare down!

We would try and try to hold the fireball in our mouth as long as we possibly could. The burning sensation would clear your sinus, and cure the common cold (ok, not really, but it felt like it could!) With my red stained fingertips, I would pull the fireball in and out of my mouth until I licked all the spiciness off. Then in one good chomp I would hear “CRUNCH” in my ears, and hope that it was the fireball that shattered and not my teeth.

I still love fireballs. However, I must admit that I haven’t had one in quite some time. I think they are especially pretty out of the wrapper and stored in a clear glass jar. I may need to get a jar full for my desk. I’ve always heard that fireballs can be the cure-all for many ailments. From sinus problems to weight loss, the Atomic Fireball could be your answer. I’m here to tell you, if the weight loss theory is true, then it missed this girl! I can say that the fireballs will clear your sinuses, and calm a sore throat. I know you can find Atomic Fireballs at most gas stations and Cracker Barrel restaurants. If you are unsuccessful in finding the fireball, check Amazon. Mostly because Amazon has everything you can imagine. Get a little retro, and try out an Atomic Fireball. I wonder how long you can stand up to the heat!
