Old time candy is still very popular today. Candy from the 50's are always a big hit for 50's birthday gifts, parties, class reunions, themed parties and believe it or not trade shows. Many of these sweet treats are just as popular today as it was back in the good old days.
Many refer to these as old school candy, but you my be surprised to know that even the youth of today enjoys these candies from the past. We believe that the popularity of these old time favorites has to do with the fact it reminds many of the past and brings back many fond memories of their youth. Whether it is remembering going to your favorite corner candy store or finding it sitting in a candy dish at grandma's house.
We get calls consistently from our customers asking two questions.
1 - Is this candy fresh? As hard as it may be to believe, yes this candy is still being made today and is fresh. The only problem is, what is here today, may be gone tomorrow. The candy manufactures seem to be discontinuing some of the great one's, but they also bring back some of the lost but not forgotten favorites.
2- What is the most popular candy from the 50's ? We get this question a lot as many are planning parties with 50's themes and are looking for party favors, but it was before their time. Although there are many from that era that is popular, we have come up with a list of our top sellers.
