Yummy candy! Do I need to say more? How about those childhood candies that we use to love? Well, at Old Time Candy those yummy candy treats are still available.
I would like to thank Old Time Candy for allowing me to review their Decade Candy Box for an exchange of my views.
Located in LaGrange, Ohio business owners Karen and Donnie Ray started their journey back in 1999. It started one day when they walked into a large candy store in Ohio and noticed that those same favorite candies from their childhood was still available. They couldn’t believe it! In early 2000 they went online and sold their first candy assortment. In 2011 became their 11th year in the candy business and they are still going strong. I think it’s wonderful!
The beauty of this is to experience your old time favorite memories of those five or ten cent candies that you can no longer find in most stores. On their website, you will find anything from assortment candy, special occasions, holidays, decades and even some old time toys. Old Time Candy has over 650 fresh pieces of candy and they’re all from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s.
Do you remember those Wax Lips or Bottles? How about Moon Pies, Boston Baked Beans, Zagnut or Lemonheads? Yes, Old Time Candy has them!
Since my husband and I were both born in the 70’s I thought it would be a great idea to share these special candies with our children. Letting them know and tryout the candies that were around when we were little. My children kinda laughed at first when I told them that the box was coming in the mail. One of my sons said “mom” I hope that the candy taste good since it was from the 1970’s. I giggled with him and said oh no these candies are fresh. Needless to say, we were all excited to see what was in the Decade box.
The Decade box is available in either a 2lb or 4lb assortment. This jam packed box (pictured above) had a little bit of everything and even more than I expected.
Here are some examples what was in my 70’s box.
- Wax Lips
- Hot Dog Bubble Gum
- Marshmallow Ice Cream Cones
- Candy Buttons
- Blow Pops and so much more
These boxes make wonderful gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, corporate and graduation. The box can be personalized with a special message for an additional fee.
What makes these Decade boxes so special is how you feel when you open and take a look for the first time. It brought back so many memories for my husband and I. We really did enjoy looking through the candy and saying to each other “hey remember this one”. Brought smiles and laughter. Loved it! I would highly recommend the Decade Boxes specially for those that you have a hard time buying for. It truly makes a wonderful and thoughtful gift.
The 4lb Decade box retails for $33.99
