My mom had her box of Ayds that she kept on a high shelf so that we wouldn't get to them -- of course we did! They were like candy to us; not sure they did anything for Mom other than give her an excuse to ban us from the kitchen for 20 minutes while she unwrapped two pieces to enjoy with a cup of coffee.dz
dz, I could have written your comment myself - it was EXACTLY the same at my house - LOL!
Wiki says the active ingredient was BENZOCAINE? Weird.rm
Once you remember the hysteria over AIDS that gripped us in the early to mid-80's, it's easy to understand how people seriously thought you could get AIDS from eating Ayds. Just like you could get AIDS from a toilet seat, a public swimming pool or being within 100 yards of anyone who looked suspiciously gay...
Oh, I remember these so well! They were supposed to suppress your appetite, but I would eat five or six at a time. I also remember when AIDS effectively killed this product.
