For those candy lovers who enjoy nostalgic Easter candies, the opportunity to handpick your favorites from a wide selection of delectable retro candies is as close as the click of a mouse.

Many of the memories that people hold onto for years and years are often associated with smells and tastes, so including nostalgic Easter candies is the perfect way to share some of your fondest memories with loved ones.
Filling a colorful Easter basket with all types of chewy, chocolate, or sour candy can send a person’s thoughts down memory lane to all those nostalgic candies that tasted as good as they looked.

Tucked away in the back of a closet shelf filled with Sunday bonnets and fur-lined hats, the tiny china tea set waited for the next tea party. Its tiny dishes decorated in fancy swirl patterns of bright blue color would be filled with deliciously sweet pieces of chocolate candy, Necco Wafers, and Licorice Wheels. Sometimes we pretended to have real tea and other times we made do with Kool-Aid. Occasionally, we varied things up a bit and had regular or peanut M & Ms for our tea party, pretending the red ones were cherries, the yellow ones were creamy butter cookies, and the brown ones were expensive chocolates. However, nothing tasted better than our caramel or peanut butter filled pieces of chocolate candies!
