Classic Candy

A bit bored during a lull at work, I found a rather interesting site. It has all kinds of classic candies, all your old favorites you can't find anymore plus the more common stuff, categorized by what decade it came out in. I briefly thought about buying a couple of their assortments and selling the pieces singly - a scheme that worked far better than lemonade stands when I was a kid. But I realized there would be issues in stocking and logistics, and regretfully let the idea go. I've been a serious sugar addict - as a kid, I loved sour apple jolly ranchers, gummi fruits, Sour Patch Kids, Blue Razzberry Blo-Pops, chocolate of course, anything Tootsie-Roll - and those foamy circus peanuts - I loved it all. I have a special memory of going with a dollar to the corner store after church, buying a Mello Yello, as well as forty or fifty cents worth of sour patch kids and gummy fruits. I'd go up to the playhouse in the church play ground and eat them. Do you have a particular food or candy that always takes you back?

Small peppermint patties remind me of my grandpa, and Andes mints remind me of my old pilot friend Don. I miss him.

@Jessicalynnt Sometimes one person is like the trunk of the family tree - the hub of the wheel.

Ah yes, I've seen the site as well. I've thought about doing a purchase from there for a family member's birthday or christmas or what not. I haven't yet done so.

@Rohvannyn I just hope no one thinks to do so for me. I am very picky about my chocolates.

I like the non-chocolate stuff. Recently I've been on the hunt for red ropes. I can't find them anywhere! They are available online but only in the $25 box!

They are $17.59 at Oldtimecandy.com but that's still a lot of money.

I liked gummy worms too. Still do. They're good for a sore throat.
