Thursday/ sugus and Pong

It didn’t take long for me to polish the little bag of Sugus gummies.    Way back when I was growing up, I knew Sugus in another form, as square chewy candies wrapped in wax paper.    So I was looking for a picture of the packaging from back then and stumbled onto these young Spanish lasses playing a soccer version of Pong (while chewing their Sugus, I presume).    Pong is one of the earliest arcade video games to reach mainstream popularity, originally manufactured by Atari Incorporated (Atari), who released it in 1972.    I loved it when I played it the first time – in a Holiday Inn where I stayed with my family in the port city of Durban in South Africa.
