Five Cents Plain

Posted by Turk1 on July 18, 2003

I have heard and seen the expression "Five Cents Plain" scralled in chalk on overpasses when I was a kid butI believe it belonged to my father's generation. I have always believed that it had to do with bulk candy that used to be sold in apothacary jars in the old time candy stores. Does someone hear know the actual meaning?
