I remember my parents saying they would quit smoking when cigarettes went over a dollar a pack! (of course they did not)

Penny candy: sigh. There was a ovely little "variety store" in our neighborhood; we spent many a summer day walking down the street with our coins to get little brown paper bags filled with gum, chocolate, fruity treats, sourballs, trading cards and stickers that came with their own stick of pink bubble gum with a very special powdery taste (why don't trading cards come with this gum anymore?)
