Old Time Candy Review
*I received Old Time Candy to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own*
I’m a child of the 80s (the best decade EVER), and I love anything that brings back memories of my childhood. So, when I got a chance to try out a box of Old Time Candy, I was super excited!
The Old Time Candy company makes boxes of candy that represent each decade from the 1950s to the 1980s. How cool is that? And, while there aren’t boxes for them, you can buy candy separately from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s and 1990s!
I got a 4-pound box from the 1980s, and the candy sure brought back memories of running to the corner store to get candy. What did my box contain? All of my favorites – Mike and Ikes, Swedish Fish, Pop Rocks, Hot Tamales and my absolute favorite, Bottle Caps!
Check out some of the other candies included in various boxes: Chiclets (1960s), Blow Pops (1970s – I had no idea these were from the 70s!), Bubble Tape – I LOVED Bubble Tape when I was a kid! (1980s), Gummy Coke Bottles (1990s), Gobstoppers (1990s) and Candy Buttons (remember the ones attached to paper strips??)! Guess what decade Candy Buttons came out – the 1930s! Besides reliving my own childhood through my box, it’s fun to go through the candy included in other decade’s boxes!
These are great to send out as gifts, too, because you can get a variety of labels for pretty much every holiday from Christmas and Hanukkah to Mother’s Day and Father’s Day! And, of course, there are labels for birthday gifts and for gifts for any occasion!
The boxes cost $23.99 for 2 pounds of candy and $33.99 for 4 pounds and, let me tell you, the 4 pounds we got is a LOT of candy! We’ve been sharing it because there’s no way we can eat it all!
