For some good nostalgic fun, today my husband and I drove up to a huge car show in Lake George, NY. There were thousands of people there and hundreds and hundreds of cars from the '40s, '50s, '60s, and '70s were on display. Besides the acres of parked cars, there were endless parades of muscle cars and hot rods up and down the main street. It seems like anyone who owns a classic car loves the nostalgia of a particular time. We always reminisce about the '60s, partly because of the 1968 Camaro convertible that we own, and also because it was just a fun time back then, kind of care free here in Woodstock. On the way home from Lake George, we were trying to think of songs from the era of great cars that have to do with the theme of nostalgic candy memories. This is what we came up with:
"The Candy Man," by Sammy Davis Jr.
"Peppermint Twist," by The Sweet
"Sugar Shack," by Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs
"Sugar Sugar," by The Archies
"I Want Candy," by Bow Wow Wow
"My Boy Lollipop," by Millie Small
"Candy Girl," by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons
"Tutti Frutti," by Little Richard
"Incense and Peppermints," by the Strawberry Alarm Clock
"Sugartime," by the McGuire Sisters
"Sugar and Spice," by the Searchers
Candy and sugar were a popular theme in songs back then. Things have certainly changed...
Does anyone have any other titles with a candy theme?

This is nice wish we could organize something like this in London. I am a sucker for classic cars too. Sure you must have had loads of fun reminiscing.
