I think I found out about Sprees when I was about four years old.  They sold them at the snack bar at the pool in their long skinny tube of black & silver & yellow.  They looked like they came from outer space.  Of course we weren’t handed over money to buy candy at the snack bar.  Eventually I got to try a yellow one from a pack my sister got on a road trip & as life went on occasionally one of my siblings would get them & I’d eat a few, but they were never my personal choice.

So it’s been 20+ years since I last had some Sprees.  I bought them on trip to the dollar store with my niece & nephew.  I was a little let down they were in a box instead of the classic roll (ends up the still come that way in some places).  Also the pieces in the box are about 2/3 of the size of the classic ones.  It says that a serving is fifteen of these things, but I gave up on the fourth one because it seemed to be soap flavored.  So not having had these for a long time, I can’t be certain they actually used to be good, but I am confused by people intentionally buying them today.
