Imagine a close friend -who hadn’t seen you in some time- asking you just how you lost so much weight? “Well, I had Ayds” you might reply… Yep, this disastrously named candy from the 70’s and 80’s, actually was an ‘appetite suppressant’ candy which contained benzocaine, in order to reduce the sensations of taste, which presumably was to stop you eating it.
