You might know that candy from the 1970s is as popular as ever, but did you know that the clothes are popular, too?!! Today an email in my inbox from a major department store was advertising "dresses with a 70s vibe." That store has come full circle. Last year they were pushing high fashion and now this season it's clothing styles from the '70s that are in vogue. For the fashion world, the 1970s are back in! How crazy is that? Platform shoes, floral prints, fluid fabrics, and bow tie styles are the rage. It seems like just yesterday that we wore those fashions in high school. Times change, trends come and go, but history has a way of repeating itself.
At Woodstock Candy, we never left that decade behind. Actually, our whole town of Woodstock, New York is kind of in limbo between the '60s and '70s. Kids who grew up during that era have great memories of that time, and we help bring some of that nostalgia back to life through candy.
We carry on a tradition of specializing in candy from bygone eras, and candy that was popular in the 1970s is especially fun. Do you remember Pop Rocks, Skittles, Razzles, Candy Cigarettes, Pixy Stix, Candy Buttons on Paper, Gold Mine Bubble Gum, Bonomo Turkish Taffy, Jujubes, and Atomic Fireballs? It's all still made today, even though you might not find it for sale in big retail stores.
While growing up in Woodstock, we used to go to Folk Art on Rock City Road to buy our penny candy. Nina, the owner, was so patient with us. She's still driving a car at age 92, and seems so youthful for her age. Folk Art is long gone, but thanks to the internet, all that 1970s candy can be found at WoodstockCandy.com
