In all seriousness, I will say baseball cards. I know, they're still made, but who wants to shell out $3 for 7 cards?
I know there are others who can outdo this deal, but for me the best summer of my life was 1987, when I could purchase packs of 15 Topps cards (plus one awful piece of gum) for 40¢. The 1987 Topps series remains my all-time favorite, I just loved that wooden background and the fonts they used. I used to get paid $2/week to do chores around the house. Saturday was payday, so I'd frequently ride my bike down to Van's Market (now the Colonial Market) in Worthington with my buddies on Saturday morning and buy 5 packs of cards...then we'd ride back to my house and open them up to see who we got while listening to the Reds game broadcast. I'd get excited every time I saw a Reds player, even if it was a Wade Rowdon or Rob Murphy.
The guy who ran the Colonial Market never charged us tax for anything, and looking back I think something was up there, but of course we didn't care at the time.
Good memories... But I don't know that baseball cards hold the same attraction to kids these days as they once did. I never see them in grocery stores anymore, and you used to see them all the time.
We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

I'm sure Roy remembers a place called Monkey Miller's in Centerville. I used to ride my bike there when I was a kid for candy. Some of the loose candy they had on the shelves had about 1/4" of dust on it. I stuck with the candy bars in wrappers.

Heck, at this point in my life, even a good buzz.

Some ice cream store in Middletown use to have the best.
