Old Time Candy Decade 1970 Review

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

We have had the opportunity to receive a box of decade's candy from Old Time Candy .

I chose a box of the 70's Candy because I was born in 1977. Then I thought I should of asked for a box of 1980's candy. I grew up eating 80's candy. It was pretty cool though, to see the candy kids were buying back when my parents were younger.

Some of the candy in our box was Chic-O-Sticks, Candy Buttons on paper, Wax Lips, Life Savers and Lemon Heads. Some of the candy I remembered as being some of my favorites growing up.

My kids were over the moon excited about a box of over 650 pieces of candy. They thought it was cool too,that the candy was what was in, in the 1970's. They didn't kid me though, they were in it for the candy, it could of been 1800's candy, as long as it was candy. The only item in the whole box none of them cared for was the Wax Lips, they don't get into those or the little wax juicy bottles. Of course, because they weren't here through the wax phase they just can't understand. They will never understand the thrill of watching the first Jaws at a Drive in theater either. I kinda feel a little sorry for them.

Karen and Donny Ray of LaGrange, Ohio are the owners of Old Time Candy and certified baby boomers. They both grew up in the late 60's, when it was .50 to go to the picture show and buying a large bag of popcorn only cost a dime. Their daughter grew up in the generation x time, and when she was old enough joined Old Time Candy to work along side her mom and dad.

Old Time Candy would make a great Mother's Day gift. Give your mom a box of candy from the decade of her youth.
