CLOSED Giveaway: 4 lbs Box of Old Time Candy

About Old Time Candy
We grew up in the late fifties and early sixties and are certified "baby boomers." It cost 50 cents to go to the "picture show" and a large bag of popcorn from the "dime store" was only a dime (really!). We remember the first McDonald's in Cleveland when the burgers were 15 cents and fries sold for 12 cents. Those were the days.

We have a lot of fun eating and selling the candy we ate as kids. Sometimes we are asked how we can sell 50 year old candy. It makes us smile and our response is that our candy is fresh from the manufacturer. We don't make the candy, we tracked down the manufacturers who are still in business and sell their candy on the Internet.



Most of us have grown up, gone to college, maybe moved to a different area of the country, raised families and in the process have forgotten about the candy of our youth. We package and ship our candy every day so it gets into your hands (and mouths) quickly.


We are actually in the "memory business." It is our hope that you will enjoy the candy and at the same time, take a trip down memory lane. Our Candy you ate as a kid® packages make wonderful gifts. Everyone loves candy, especially candy you ate as kid.


Standard Decade Boxes are available in 2 sizes and are available from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s or All Decades. The 4 lb decade box is jammed with over 70 of your old time favorites, 60 different candies with some duplicates. The 2 lb box has over 40 pieces of candy, 35 different candies with some duplicates.
 
I decided to go with the 80's box since this would match my childhood. I really didn't know what to expect before I received my box of memories. Tim & I went through the box in amazement with all the different candy we had when we were young. It was actually a blast to look back on the time when we were young.
 
Both kids were shall we say overly excited by the mere sight of so much candy. We had hands going everywhere asking "what's this?" & "can I have this" etc... I made them put the candy back so we could go through each piece & just take our time. We did have the lemon drops & so did the dog because apparently someone dropped one.
 
Old Time Candy would make a perfect & unique gift for about anyone. It truly does bring back memories of when we were young & carefree. It made us both smile & was so very sweet. So if you are looking for an awesome one of a kind gift then this is the perfect gift.
