A Retro Candy Gift Box Makes a Sweet Treat

Retro candy gift boxes make a fantastic gift for everyone on your gift list. If you or someone you know is longing for a sweet treat from childhood, but you just cannot seem to find it. Do not despair. Retro candy from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s is still available. You just need to know where to look to find the perfect present: a retro candy package that is filled with all of the sweet and tasty goodies you remember.

Each attractive retro candy gift box comes in a variety of sizes chock full of a variety of nostalgic confections. Depending on the decade ordered, the gift box may include such delicacies as Jujubes, Grape Heads, Runts, Saf-T Pops, Pixie Sticks, Jolly Ranchers, Beeman hard candies, Lemon Heads or Atomic Bombs. Your gift box will have a mixture of small, medium and large candies that will bring a smile to the face of even the most challenging person on your list.

We remember eating (or wanting desperately to eat) our favourite candy when we were young and it brings back all of our fond memories as if they happened just yesterday. Trick or Treating with a pack of neighbourhood friends was an annual tradition. Afterward we would all race home, dump out our pillow cases and look for our favourites.

Everyone had his or her favourite candy and trading with friends to get more of the one you loved was all part of the fun. Your friend loved the flavour of molasses and peanut butter Mary Janes, so you traded all of yours from your Halloween cache for her peanut butter and coconut Chick-O-Sticks. Of all the events in our lives, we remember these kinds of little moments with fondness; we can almost taste their sweetness even now all these years later.

Chewy, sticky Bit-O-Honey, the salty peanut flavour of a Pearson Salted Nut Roll or the spicy flavour of tiny cinnamon Red Hots, Teaberry or Beech-Nut Chewing Gum, Babe Ruth bars, LifeSavers and the Whitman Sampler were all favourites of the 40s and 50s.

SkyBars, Sen-Sen Breath Refreshment with their strong liquorice flavour, Neapolitan Coconut Bars, Fruit Stripe Gum, Pop Rocks, Bottle Caps, Wax Lips and Bazooka Bubble Gum, with the comic on the inside of the wrapper, were all popular treats in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

A retro candy gift box makes a perfect gift for birthdays, housewarming parties, going away presents and thank-you gifts; even a new mom or mom-to-be would enjoy candy from her childhood. Cannot think of anything to get grandpa for his birthday? Why not get him nostalgic candy, his ticket to a walk down memory lane. No matter who the gift box is for, one thing is certain, receiving a fun box of old-time candies is sure to be remembered long after the candy is gone.

Whether the preference is chocolate candies like Necco Wafers Chocolate, Look Bars or a Pearson Bun Bar, or hot and spicy cinnamon Red Hots, fizzy Zotz Sours or Swedish Fish there is a retro candy gift box that is just right.
