Today, it is possible to purchase candy from any era, including before the 1920's. Imagine what a pleasure it would be for someone to receive one of these retro candy gifts and, opening the box, find candy that was popular when they were young. It will bring back the nostalgic feeling of a different time or place.
Penny candy was extremely popular in the early days. A child could take five cents to the store and come home with a bag full of candy. Wax containers full of a tasteful liquid, Licorice Snaps, Mary Jane's, Rock Candy, Goo Candy, wax lips and many other confections were a delight to the youthful shopper who often spent quite some time in making choices.
As time went on there were favorites in the 20's, 30's, 40's and so forth, up to today's generation. One way to determine exactly what kind of a purchase to make is to add approximately 6 years to a person's birth date. That will equal about the time when they were doing serious candy shopping. Finding a gift of their favorite childhood candy is something that would be a big surprise and gratefully received.
Today it is possible to have a professionally wrapped gift that will carry the theme of any era. These are artistically done to emphasize the occasion. Depending on personal choice, the gift can come in a basket, box, or other container that specifically pertains to the pleasant memories of the recipient.
Today's retro candy outlet can furnish any kind of candy that was popular from the 1800's to today. Gifts can include things such as Marshmallow Peanuts, Anise Squares, Maple nut goodies and others that were popular before 1920. Then there are things such as Cherry Red Buttons, Chick O Sticks and Tootsie Pops from the 1930's. The 1940's, with sugar rationing due to the war, still brought forth favorites such as Bazooka Bubble Gum,Turkish Taffy, Fun Dip and others.
These are just a few of the examples of candies that are available that represent different eras. Retro candy gifts are an excellent choice for any occasion and are something that will be remembered for a very long time.
