Some nostalgic candy has been around for generations. All of these candies have been on the market for at least 85 years; now that's a long time! Here is a time line of other things happening in the United States when these candies were being introduced. This should give you an idea of how far back these nostalgic candies go; a lot of them were in stores before our grandparents were even born.

  • 1871- Doscher's French Chew Taffy introduced, same year that Ulysses S. Grant was United States President

  • 1893- Juicy Fruit Gum

  • 1895- Goetze Caramel Cream

  • 1896- Tootsie Roll introduced, same year Utah becomes a state

  • 1900- Hershey Chocolate Bar

  • 1901- Necco Wafers, same year Theodore Roosevelt becomes President

  • 1902- Necco Conversation Hearts

  • 1906- Hershey's Chocolate Kisses

  • 1912- Lifesavers- Same year Girl Scouts of USA was started

  • 1914- Red Vine Licorice

  • 1920- Baby Ruth Candy Bar-The first radio broadcasts in Pittsburgh, PA

  • 1923- Mounds Bar - Same year of the Teapot Dome Scandal

  • 1924- Milky Way Bar

  • 1925- Bit-o-Honey

  • 1926- Milk Duds introduced- Calvin Coolidge was President

This says a lot about people's tastes; food trends come and go, but our love of nostalgic candy stays pretty constant. All of these candies are very simple and have an appeal to people of all ages. Many parents and grandparents who grew up with these candies pass along a tradition to the younger generation. That's a good reason to keep eating yummy things. Nostalgic candy is here to stay!
