As soon as I came across Old Time Candy I was intrigued. I was so excited to see some of my past time favorites like Candy
I chose to review the 1960 4lb decade box. Decade boxes are available in themes like Easter, Father's Day, Birthday's and many more. They are also available in standard decade boxes like I reviewed from the 1960 through the 80's in 2lb or 4lb boxes. Can't decided on a decade? They even have a assortment decade box.
Four pound decade assortment boxes measure 12 x 9 x 3 inches and are jammed with over 70 pieces of candy, 60 different candies with some duplicates. This box really was jammed packed I was really impressed with the assortment included and really excited about some of my all time favorites!
I'm not sure if I can name it all but I will try my best with a little help from Old time Candies list. My 1960's box included: 5th Avenue, Atomic Fire Balls, Banana Splits, Bit-O-Honey, Bonomo's Turkish Taffy, Boston Baked Beans, Bubble Gum Cigars, Candy Buttons, Candy Cigarettes, Candy Necklace, Caramel Creams (Bull's Eyes), Charleston Chew. Chick-o-Stick, Chiclets, Chuckles, Chunky, Cinnamon Disks, Dots, Dubble Bubble Gum, Fizzies Drink Tablets, Good & Plenty, Heath Bar, Hot Dog Bubble Gum, Indian Brand Pumpkin Seeds, Jawbreakers, Jujubes, Junior Mints, Kits Taffy, Lemonheads, Life Savers, Lollies, Coconut Long Boys, Marshmallow Ice Cream Cones, Milk Duds, Mint Juleps, Necco Wafers, Now & Laters, Pay Day, Peanut Butter Bars, Pixy Stix, Planter's Peanut Bar, Red Hots, Root Beer Barrels, Saf-T-Pops, Sen Sen, Sixlets, Sky Bar, Slap Stix, Peppermint Stick, Sugar Daddy, Sweetarts, Teaberry Gum, Tootsie Pops, Tootsie Roll, Wax Bottles (Nik-L-Nips), Wax Lips, Zagnut and Zero Bar!
Talk about a box sent from heaven..mmm I of course went straight for the Sugar Daddy oh how I missed those. Old Time Candy may have just become my favorite shop for all my candy cravings. I can't get over the items they have available, that I have been dreaming of. My Father always talks about his favorite candies of the past, I'm seriously considering getting him a personalized Father's Day decade box, this Father's Day. As I was putting together this review I discovered Apple Heads! I loved them ( yes, I was a kid I loved a lot of candy) My Father and I often reminisce about them. He used to bring me home a sack of candy every Friday and those were ALWAYS included!
Don't worry if your not the assortment type, you can walk the aisle of Old Time Candy and pack your own bag filled with all your personal favorites with over eleven jam packed
