Old Time Candy Chocolate Lovers Review

Powered by Mom shares her Old Time Candy Christmas Chocolate Lovers Review

My hubby and I don’t buy each other expensive gifts over the holidays. We will save our money to get our daughter something she really wants and we will give each other smaller items. We enjoy doing this as it challenges us to think of what the other person might enjoy without blowing our budgets. When I heard about Old Time Candy I knew that I hand found one of those perfect gifts for my hubby and to be honest almost anyone in my family!

Let’s face it almost everyone loves candy and in my family chocolate can rule supreme! That’s why I was drawn to Old Time Candy and their entire line of products. They have these cool decade boxes where you can have either an assortment of different candies and chocolates from the 20s to the 90s or you can have it all as one decade. Talk about bringing back childhood memories, I know that certain candies take me back! All I could think was how cool is this company?!


For this holiday season I was of course drawn to the Christmas Chocolate Lover’s Box where you can select one of their covers and then have a personalized message printed on it. You can also get these awesome chocolate boxes with birthday covers! As you can see in our first picture we went with Merry Christmas Dad as my daughter really wanted to be the one to give this to my hubby. That’s okay as it totally fits into our keeping it easy on the budget gift giving to us grown ups. However when my daughter got to see what was inside the box I could tell she was wishing she could dive in and start eating some of those treats!

Can you see that smile on her face below, she really wanted some of those chocolates. It was hard for her to close that box but she did and left the contents intact. I suspect I’ll be having to get an Old Time Candy Box for her in the future. They haven’t made her decade yet so she might get to try a bit of all of it or maybe the 80s since that’s when her parents were kids 🙂

My daughter says she wants dad to open this gift first. I’m not sure if it’s because she’s excited to give it to him or excited that he will share some of the contents with her :). Either way I know Old Time Candy is going to be a hit in our home if my daughter’s reaction is any indication. I have to admit I’m tempted to explore the box more and maybe try a treat but so far I’ve resisted.

See why we have to try so hard to resist?

I got one for my daughter and I picked the 80s since she was born in 1985. It had some yummy candy in it. The Razzles brought back so many good memories, both a candy and a gum. Lol!

    I had never heard of this company, Thank you for your review! I just liked them on facebook and I know my children and grandkids would love to get some of the candy I grew up with as a present not just for Christmas but great idea for Birthdays!

  17. I had never heard of this before, but I must say this would make an awesome gift!!! I love the nostalgic value of this gift and just reading this article conjures up memories of my own childhood. At 56, I’ve tried a lot of different candies in my life. One of those that brings back vivid memories are the spiral caramel candies know as Snirkles. My grandpa used to take my siblings and I to the corner gas station to buy them. I believe they were two for a nickel back in those days. Beautiful memories of days gone by.

  27. Thanks so much for the Terrific Review on the Old Time Candy Chocolates! I think that this is one of the neatest gifts to receive! If you get the box for the year you were really growing up, it really takes you back when you look at the candies you used to love when you were young! I would love to receive a gift like this! I think you’re going to have to hide that box until Christmas or there might be some things missing by the time your husband gets it on Christmas day! Thanks for the review and the pictures! I really do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  28. This really brings back memories and those candies make my mouth water.

  29. I havent had a Mallow Cup in YEARS!! Used to love them!!

    Thanks for the chance to win!!

  30. heidi eaton says:

    Seeing your daughter with that box of candy brings me back to when my sister used to come in with a bag full of candy, the only difference is my sister wouldn’t share her candy.

  31. Wendy Rafferty says:

    This box looks so good! Brings back a lot of memories! I probably have a story for each candy! Many of these are hard to find anymore,so its great to see them all in one box. Love it!

  32. Tina Coleman says:

    Would go far filling all the stockings I have to fill this year, thank you for the chance 🙂

  36. Jan Wainwright says:

    Some of them I recognize…some not so much! Looks yummy!

  37. Debbie Welchert says:

    Looking at all the candy on their website sure brought back a lot of memories. Some of the candy I didn’t know they still made.

  38. What a great idea for a Christmas gift. I was racking my brain trying to come up with something for my impossible brother. Thanks for the info!

  39. The pic of your daughter iss adorablee. That smilee and her longing. 🙂 I love this company. I may just get my daughter a box. She’s a big time fan of anything nostalgic. Thanks for your review.

  40. terry myers says:

    Like your daughter wanting to give it to her dad

  41. Gena Durbin Carrico says:

    I would love to get this for my parents, it would bring up a lot of really good memories. Would also be a fun gift to give as a family gift so you could share with your kids what candy you grew up with.

  42. Yum and nostalgic.
    I actually stocked up on these big bars this fall, at least the ones that still exist and made soem bag specials for some old friends. THey loved it. But didn’t have some of the great ones you have listed here!

  43. Sherry Bracy says:

    I Love how we can have the cover personalized!! making it perfect for those hard to buy people on our list, because everyone loves chocolate! I wish my parents were still around as they would have gotten a kick out of the 50’s & 60’s candies lol! Ohh what a great way to bring back precious memories! 🙂

  44. Vickie Marks Allbright says:

    superb memories in a box and its yummy cant lose

  45. Dorothy Teel says:

    How cute that your daughter wanted her dad to open his present fast, and I would be like her and want to share the candy with him. I love chocolate and this company has so many different types of candy to pick from, and I love the idea of personalizing the candy box. Thank you for sharing, this candy review..

  46. What a great idea for our family Christmas gathering – there would be candy to bring back memories for each member of our extended family!

  47. Sarah Kurtz says:

    Love this…. perfect gift for my grandpa. I bet it would definitely bring him back to his childhood.

  48. Colleen Maurina says:

    This is such a great idea especially for those people who are so difficult to buy for. This would definitely please anyone! Thanks for the information!

  49. Holly Thomas says:

    I am going to send a box t my husband, he will be out of town for Christmas.

  50. Brings back memories. Great to know that the candies are still available from long ago!

  51. Tamra Phelps says:

    Oh, my goodness, I remember those candies! I wonder if the 70s box has a Reggie bar? Lol, that would be great.

  52. Interesting to see some of those candies that “aren’t available” anymore. If Old Time Candy has them, someone is still making them. Bring them back for national distribution!

  53. Who wouldn’t love getting a box of candies like this. I haven’t seen a few of those in years. Bring them back!

  54. Debbie Welchert says:

    What a great gift this would make. I had fun just going to their website and looking for all of the candy I had as a kid and you know they had it all.

  55. Lori Williams says:

    I think this would be a great give for some of the “older” folks on my Christmas list. Opening a box like this one with candy from when they were in their younger days would bring back some “sweet” memories for them. I am sure they could tell some great stories as they eat and enjoy each different piece of candy. Thank you for sharing about this company and what they have to offer.

  56. This sounds like an awesome Christmas gift 🙂 even personalized!

  57. rochelle haynes says:

    Love to have this box of candy

  58. Oh, so much will-power for such a little girl, lol!! This is great timing; I’m trying to find several small gifts for my parents’ 45th wedding anniversary next year. I thought I’d spread them out over the entire year. A 70’s themed candy box would be perfect!!

  59. Thanks so much for doing this giveaway! It brings back so many great memories!

  60. Chocolate lovers box so yummy
