Old Time Candy for Mother’s Day & More

Powered by Mom gets an early Mother’s Day Gift – Old Time Candy!

It’s true that I can have a sweet tooth sometimes and I definitely LOVE chocolate. I have some favorites from over the years, from when I was a young child, teenager and now that I’m all grown up. Some you can’t seem to get any more or haven’t seen in stores for years but if you go to Old Time Candy you might just find them.

Old Time Candy Mother's Day

They have candy that fromΒ the different decades, I know when I went and looked on their website there were some that they had that I hadn’tΒ seen in years. There decade boxes, chocolate boxes and more make for a fun (and yummy) gift any time of the year. I got my husband a box for Christmas and I admit I was eyeing some of the candy he had. Apparently so much so that my family decided I needed one for Mother’s Day, well before since we had to share it beforehand for this review πŸ˜‰

Β My daughter came up with the personalized message on the box take a look. She was pretty proud of herself for coming up with this message lol

I of course was in heaven wiht all that chocolate, I’m slowly making my way through, savoring my favorites, enjoying some nostalgia. I’ll admit I had a few flashes of my childhood when I saw the Chocolate Mirage Sticks that look liek they’re in a cigarette pack. I can’t believe we used to think it made us look cool to have a pretend (or even real) cigarette hanging out of our mouth. The chocolate sticks were eaten though regardless πŸ™‚

I’m going to be enjoying my box for quite a long time as this awesome 4lb chocolate boxΒ Β is jammed with over 40 of your old time favorite candy bars including Bun, Charleston Chew, Goo Goo Cluster and many more.

  1. i remember those cigarettes, lol

  2. So many candies that bring back memories of being a kid πŸ™‚ I remember Fun Dips and Ring Pops were the fun thing to have in the summer and whatchamacallits was my chocolate candy bar of choice. The man that ran the little store around the corner always had them on sale because they were his favorite too πŸ™‚

  3. Reese’s peanut butter cups. Great and fun idea as a gift. Charleston Chew, talk about a blast from the past!

  4. Trisha McKee says:

    The decade boxes are so much fun! I love looking at these and remembering candies from my childhood!

  5. Lisa Aliperti says:

    One of my favorite reasons to go to a Cracker Barrel restaurant was to leave with some of the candies from my childhood. Now I have another source! Thanks for the review and the information.

  6. One of the coolest ideas out there. I love the blast from the past feeling of not just eating but seeing candy from when you were a kid! It would be cool to get my grandma one of these from the year she was born and see if remembers the candy from her childhood. I wonder what the 2010s assortment would look like?

  7. Hershey kisses remind me of my Nanny. πŸ™‚

  8. barbara dunaway says:

    this is my kind of giveaway. I love me some chocolate

  9. Vickie says:

    This is such a nostalgic gift idea for gifting to our parents and grands too. The memories and stories that will be shared from giving this or receiving.
    I have very fond memories of my papa and daddy getting me candy as a little girl.

  10. I love how these boxes bring you right back to your childhood, when candy bars didn’t even cost .25 !
    Some of these are my favorites! Especially Milk Duds!

  11. Kathryn Mcneal says:

    You’re so lucky to have gotten such a great box of different chocolates. I hadn’t heard of some of those brands before but they were probably from a decade before I was around. lol I bet you enjoyed all of those.

  12. Charity Cram says:

    This really would make a great gift…the nostalgia factor makes it more fun!

  13. Aw, cute and happy pics. πŸ™‚
    Kit Kat candy, I loved so much as a kid. I have been trying to avoid having it except for special occasions. πŸ˜‰
    Would be a wonderful treat for Mother’s Day. My mum often was the one giving out candy on Halloween when we were kids decades ago. She enjoyed seein gll of the kiddie costumes.

  14. Susan Burge says:

    It’s hard to pick just one – I remember so many candies from my childhood, probably because my mother would only let me have one piece at a time! My grandmother used to give me honey candies and horehound drops, which she decided were healthy. And my paternal grandfather kept Life Savers in his car when we visited, just so he could give them to me when we went somewhere.

  15. Fleta Wright says:

    I would love to try these candies and do a review for the candy.

  16. janet aycock says:

    this is a great idea for a giveaway every one loves chocolate. i would love to have this thanks

  17. Stephanie Phelps says:

    I love that your family remember that you loved your husbands from Christmas. My kids would have totally forgotten and yes I remember the ones that come in the cigerette type box those were the best back in the day!

  18. I LOVED a candy bar called 7 up and little gum that,came in a bag called,gold rush.

  19. It is neat how candy can bring back memories of childhood! I had so much fun browsing the great selection at Old Time Candy.

  20. erin Marie says:

    This would be so fun to share with the grandparents and grandkids.
    Lots of good stories and memories!

  21. susan byrne says:

    I need this!

  22. cheryl lister says:

    This is quite a nice assortment of sweets. I remember the Abba Zabba candy bars from my days as a kid. One of my favorites.

  23. This is a great relic from our earlier times.This looks like a very great gift idea for the gift-giver.

  24. Debbie Loy says:

    Turkish Taffy was my favorite. Thanks for the reviews and giveaways!

  25. Laura Ari says:

    I think this is a fun idea for the person who has everything. I mean who doesn’t love getting candy!

  26. Our family has enjoyed one of their decade boxes before. The various unique candies bring back lots of memories, especially if husband and wife grew up in different areas of the U.S. and therefore had memories of sometimes different candies. It was fun to see and taste the candy of our childhoods again!

  27. Desiree Dunbar says:

    I loved Nerds and Laffy Taffy as a kid.

  28. CHERYL WOOD says:


  29. Jodi Hoppe Wresh says:

    this definitely has a lot of variety of candy from over the yrs. this would make a great gift for any of my family. i liked the jolly rancher sticks and candy cigarettes the most.

  30. This would make a great gift

  31. Susan Smith says:

    This would be a great treat for any holiday or birthday. I love the big selection of candy, some of it not available
    to buy at the store.

  32. Janene zigman says:

    I absolutely love the boxes. It’s a fantastic idea.

  33. maureen says:

    Love the array of candies in the box. But I think it is a great way to share memories with family members and you can remember the last time you had such a great treat.

  34. Jesse S says:

    These candy boxes are awesome. Thank you for reviewing and sharing!!

  35. Judy Schechter says:

    I just took a trip down memory lane! I had forgotten all about good n plenty, which I loved as a child, and my mom always got juju bees when we went to the movies! I would love to receive any of Old Time Candy’s collections!

  36. Sherrie C. says:

    Your daughter seems so pleased with her personalized message! Being able to add a personalized message on a box of delicious candy is a great idea! My family and friends would love that πŸ™‚

  37. Evelyn Goettner says:

    I love the idea of giving this as a gift. Some of these candies are hard to find. I would love to try the candies my parents and grandparents grew up with.

  38. Emily Endrizzi says:

    My favorite childhood candy was Fun Dips. I still enjoy them today!

  39. Roxann says:

    I’m sure this did bring back a lot of memories. My favorite when I was little was Fruit Stripe gum and there was a candy bar called Choco-Lite that was my fav. chocolate bar.

  40. Michelle Washburn says:

    Reading this review has brought back so many childhood candy memories and now a few dreams for tomorrow too! I haven’t had a lot of these in so long. Thanks for igniting the sweet tooth in me, I think I’ll take a trip to the local candy store now.

    Some of these candies are hard to find nowadays. I think this is a fun idea and I love that the box the candy arrives in can be personalized.

    This is such a great gift. It brings back memories of your favorites and means so much that your family gave you such a gift that too a lot of thought and not just a generic gift.

  45. Calshondra Williams says:

    I love all the candy included it really takes me down memory lane and reminds me of my childhood.

  46. Rhonda Breeding says:

    What fun to be able to trigger memories to share with your kids !

  47. Monica Nuss says:

    You picked good ones from the past. Good job.

  48. These would make great birthday gifts! Looks like they give you tons of candy!

  49. Peggy Johnson says:

    What a fun concept to have a box of candy from each decade….brings back sweet memories

  50. Marga S says:

    Twix had always been my favorite. I love seeing all these candies, it was always fun as a kid to try something new. I think the idea of a personalized gift box is super fun! I would be thrilled to get one.

  51. this candy might be for mothers , but i say if i win i might share==i love candy from way back

  52. Stephanie Larison says:

    This is such a cool idea to bring back memories as a kid! The person who thought of this is a genius! lol

  53. Grace Mitchell says:

    It’s nice to have all these old time favorites together. It’s hard to find some of them. I have a friend who would love this!!

  54. jules m. says:

    i would love to see some of the candy from my childhood, and to share with my kid!

  55. breanna pollard says:

    This would make a great gift!

  56. Ruth Epstein says:

    Would love to surprise a friend of mine who is going through tough medical issues with this box – she would be in seven heaven πŸ™‚

  57. Amanda Ream says:

  58. I really like the idea of sharing this box with my Mother!

  59. Lisa V. says:

    I like the idea of a nostalgic box and would love to share with my grandchild. One candy I remember as a kid were those colored sugar dots on a sheet of paper.

  60. Zoleaykah Whittaker says:

    This a great ideal

  61. Kathy Church says:

    I love these boxes! The decades boxes are wonderful to help you relive your childhood and I’m really envious of you getting the chocolate box! I just had to hunt down the 100 Grand bars which used to be called the Hundred Thousand Dollar Bar. Needed the wrappers for vision boards for my team members.

  62. LeAnn H says:

    This would nice to have for the familys next movie night

  63. Pat Walker Pinkston says:

    I’m a chocolate addict, and love the idea of the old time candies of my childhood.

  64. Ann Marie says:

    What a great product to introduce some of my childhood favorites to my children! Great idea!

  65. These are so much fun! What a great gift they’d make too!

  66. Jenn Short says:

    Skybars were some of my favorites growing up. It felt like I was getting so many different candy bars. I always ate them in a certain order, too. I don’t remember the Mirage candy, though.

  67. hayley s says:

    I think I would have to hide this box for both myself and my 2 year old to have a bit of control before eating it all in one sitting!

  68. vickie allbright says:

    this is so fun and a great gift idea also love the personalization on the box and ty for sharing this info on your review it took me back to my childhood days for sure πŸ™‚

  69. Maria D. says:

    Haha, your daughter’s message is great! πŸ˜€ I remember when WarHeads candy used to be a huge thing, back when I was a kid. Oh, the many, many irritated taste buds I got from those! However, if I had a box like yours, I would definitely go with chocolate! Yummy!

  70. Chavonne H says:

    Wow! what an awesome gift to give to someone who loves sweets such as myself and my mom and my boyfriend. We’d all be super excited to receive this as a gift. I’m gonna look into this for upcoming birthdays, I am sure it brings about big bright smiles. I love seeing all the different kinds of candy, brings back memories.

  71. Janet Gillich says:

    Omg, so much candy. I think if I had to review this ,I would go into a candy coma. So many different candies, some I didn’t realize where still made.

  72. Brings back so many memories, I haven’t seen or thought about a lot of these in years. I love that you can put a personalized message. I used to save up my candy and sell it to my brother (sometimes I was nice and gave it to him) since I didn’t used to be able to eat chocolate – I think when his birthday rolls around again this will make a very nice gift for him. πŸ˜€

  73. teri thomas says:

    Thank you for the chocolates

  74. Danielle D says:

    This candy makes me think of my childhood and all the fun treats we had.

  75. Rhonda R. says:

    Thank you for showing the back of the box. This looks like something the recepient would like to read! Thanks for answering my question of how many pieces are in there. 40 WOW!

  76. crystal gibson says:

    This is so great. I love nostalgic things like this.

  77. Margaret McRae Davis says:

    You and I think alike; 100 Grand would be my first choice, too!

  78. Sheila H says:

    your daughter did a wonderful job choosing just the right assortment of goodies for the chocolate box! it made me smile to see that she gave her dad a little credit too πŸ™‚

  79. Tiffanie Hope says:

    Great review!!!! Your posts are always so helpful!

  80. Jennifer Reed says:

    I love candy and it’s nostalgic nature. It can make you feel like you are a kid again. I personally love Sky Bars, made by Necco Candy Company. I always pick one up when I find them because they are usually hard to find. However, I see that Old Time Candy Company carries them. Yeah!

  81. Stacey A Smith says:

    I keep looking for a candy bar that I have not seen in 15 years or so but I can’t even remember even what it was call.LOL

  82. sheri anderson says:

    It’s amazing how candy can take you back concerning early memories. I remember getting the wax shaped candy filled with liquid and I would bite off the top and drink the liquid and then chew the wax. Seems so weird now to me. This was way back in the 60’s when I was a small child, what fun!

  83. this is the perfect gift for eating and sharing

  84. Samantha K says:

    That’s really interesting that they offer candy from different decades. It’s also neat that you can personalize a message on the box.

  85. terry myers says:

    The old time candy brings so many memories back to the days I ate candy with my mother and grandmother they are bitter sweet but I love them anyway

  86. Alaina Brown says:

    That’s really cool that they put your message on the box!

  87. Katherine Oliveira says:

    It’s funny you say that 100 Grand brings back memories for you. One time when I was younger, I was eating one and my tooth came out in it LOL .. Thank you for such a great review, this seems like such a fun idea!! I love this delicious box of nostalgia!

  88. Elaine Powell says:

    reading about all those Old time favorites of mine has made me hungry. hope I can win this and I will be glad to write a review. Enjoy!

  89. Sheila H says:

    I have always been a Snickers fan, but my chilhood favorite was a big fat 3 Musketeer bar

  90. wow four pounds of chocolate ugh that would take me near a year to eat πŸ™‚ i love the chewy candy best but others in my house love chocolate πŸ™‚

  91. Sara K. says:

    Your review reminded me of when my aunt and uncle introduced me to Goo-Goo Clusters when I was young. Oh, were they yummy! I haven’t had one in years!

  92. Charlene says:

    I love chocolate in any shape or size but looking what was in the box brought back so many memories. I used to always eat Chunky’s and I’m hearing the commercial for Good and Plenty. What a blast!

  93. Marnie G (Derrick Todd) says:

    These boxes are so neat. The Decades Boxes would make great birthday gifts! How fun to open the box and see your goodies.

  94. Fun memories from childhood. Funny you used to eat the candy cigarettes. I remember those and just chomping on them like they were just a white piece of candy with a red end.

  95. amanda rauch says:

    I so remember the candy cigarettes! My sister and I used to walk around and pretend we were smoking. They were definitely not the best tasting candy but they were fun to play with

  96. Geena S says:

    Wow! This is exactly perfect to make moms cherish with old memories. making them happier by even one event is worth life long cherishing..

  97. angie c says:

    Don’t we all love chocolate! this would be a fun prize win!

  98. Nicole Tobin says:

    This whole post just brought me back to my childhood.

  99. Annmarie W. says:

    Even though my kids would like these, I feel like I would love these boxes even more…taking a trip down memory lane! I’m not sure they’d appreciate all those candies like I would. To them, it’s just chocolate. To me, it’s memories of all those years ago when I first had certain candy bars or candies…who I was with, what was going on in my life, and in some cases even who I was dating.

  100. Dana Matthews says:

    This is awesome! Some of these I had completely forgotten about. Thanks for sharing…sure gives me an idea for upcoming birthdays!

  101. Oh my gosh!! I didn’t know some of the old time candy still existed! When I was younger most candy bars cost a nickel. Other candies were just a penny! Like candy cigarettes, bottle caps, single now & laters, Mary Janes & the candy dots that was on paper. So for a quarter, this candy addict brought home a small bag of candy!! I still LOVE chocolate though!!
    This brings back memories of my siblings & certain childhood friends – some that I lost touch with!!

  102. trista hoskins says:

    I love that you get so many different kinds of candy

  103. Betty Jones says:

    It is funny how something like a candy bar can bring back childhood memories. My fondest candy was a Goo-Goo Cluster. Always had one with my pawpaw. He would have a Peppermint Patty & buy me a Goo-Goo Cluster. Thanks for bringing back sweet memories.

  104. When I was a child we would walk to the little country store next to Grand mama’s house and buy penny candy. Sometimes we had a nickle and sometimes we had a dime. But oh the delight we had in choosing and eating our candy.

  105. rochelle haynes says:

    I grew up on most of this candy love it really would like to enjoy some more of this candy

  106. I love the idea of the assortments by decade. It is amazing how some of these candies – no longer readily available – bring back so many memories from our childhood!

  107. Kim Pinch says:

    I love that you get a bit of everything from the past. I would love to share this with my kids so they could try what was my favorite.

  108. I love sweets this would be a nice mother’s day gift for me

  109. Linda O'Brien says:

    This would be a great gift for a milestone birthday. The candy and toys from our youth can really stir up the good memories.

  110. Melinda Stephens says:

    I have so many candies that I remember from when I was a kid, but you can’t buy them at the store anymore. I’m glad there is still one place I can get them.

  111. This is a very great idea for a gift that anyone would love to have to see all the candy from their childhood. Very great review thanks.

  112. renee wood says:

    Brings back such childhood memories and now I can share these kind of treats with my kids

  113. michelle elizondo says:

    They really make high quality products that I enjoy using.

  114. They have Astro Pops =D I loved those growing up. Can’t believe they are still around. They have Razzles as well. I love this company!

  115. Wendy McBride says:

    Those chocolates from our childhood days bring forward a sentimental feeling when I eat them. Mirage chocolate sticks are one I never heard of, but I do remember candy cigarettes and so silly we used to act like we were smoking cigarettes.

  116. Kimberly Flickinger (@kaflickinger74) says:

    I am new to this site but I love the old fashioned candy. Brings back memories!

  117. Going to the candy store with my friends was a big part of my childhood. I grew up in the city, & we would walk to the candy store, & then to the park to play. It’s not like that now for my kids. Getting a box from my decade would put a big smile on my face.

  118. michelle cavanaugh says:

    I love these boxes, brings back so many memories!

  119. Cynthia C says:

    I think we all have fond memories of the candy we enjoyed as kids. This would be a wonderful gift.

  120. Dawn Monroe says:

    The candy bar I miss is sitting right on top of your box, the Bun. My mom and I use to pick these when we wanted a treat. She would get the maple and I would get the vanilla. Bring back the Bun!

  121. merri matalon says:

    good idea! love candy!

  122. Karen Propes says:

    I think this is such a great idea, giving candy of the era of when the person grew up. So many things remind us of our younger years, and candy is one of the great ones to remember. Awesome!

  123. Lisa Coomer Queen says:

    I saw all kinds of good candy on their website. This would be an awesome box! Thanks for the chance!

  124. renee duffield says:

    that is a very great idea…

  125. Jenifer Moore says:

    What a great idea and to personalize the box! I would share this with my best friend we are candyaholics lol

  126. Robin Abrams says:

    I have not tried their boxes yet but I sure need to they have all my old time favorites

  127. Amy McCormack says:

    this box of candy is a wonderful idea thanks

  128. I’ve tried the 80’s box. It had Razzles which I’m sure you know is both a candy and a gum. I loved these when I was a teenager! I really need or want a chocolate box, I might share it. Lol! I loved the bottlecaps in the 80’s box too πŸ™‚

  129. Angela W says:

    I love her personalized note; looks like something my son would do. Awesome and wide range and variety of candy! Looks like a perfect gift to give and receive.

  130. Lisa Kerr says:

    I can’t believe all the good candy that Old Time Candy carries! This is an awesome company to order from for every occasion!
    They carry just about every kind of candy for everyone!

  131. I love chocolate. I got 12 boxes for christmas last year

  132. JANICE MURPHY says:

    What a cool idea ,I would love to get one for mother day , see some of the candy from my childhood

  133. Cindy S. says:

    Love these decade boxes. I had forgotten about so many of these candies. Now I want to have them again!

  134. I am so loving this, what a great looking box that the candy is delivered in and so many yummies to choose from. I think in my neighborhood I can find some of those candy but would like to find the candy cigerettes, loved those..

  135. I haven’t seen sky bars in years! Those were so delicious!

  136. Tiffany Greene Elliott says:

    What a awesome early Mother’s Day Gift!!
    I love being able to find the candy I ate when I was a little girl!! Thank you!!

  137. amy rouse says:

    I remember so many candies that I loved as a child. The wax coke bottles, Razzles, pink BB bats…. I probably ate way too much candy as a child. LOL

  138. Eloise Carlson says:

    I loved Bottle Caps and Zotz, they were my absolute favorites as a kid! Thanks for a great review!

  139. I love Peanut Chews. I wish they would bring back PB Max.

  140. heather e.g. kaufman says:

    Yummy, I am a big candy fan. I love to freeze Snickers bars!!

  141. Jennifer Herman says:

    I have never had a Sky Bar – that one is intriguing to me! I would love to win this – so nostalgic!

  142. Leslie S. says:

    Oh my goodness. With over 40 pieces and such a huge selection of the greats, how could you choose what to indulge in. I haven’t had a GooGoo Cluster in around 20 years. My dad used to treat me to one after my doctor’s appointments. LOL.

  143. Megan Cromes says:

    i like candy cigarettes.

  144. The box is a cool idea, but I don’t think of M&Ms and Snickers bars as “old time candy,” exactly.

  145. Tammy Houghtaling says:

    these candies bring back some of the greatest memories from childhood

  146. that candy looks yummy

  147. mmm – all the candy in this box looks so good. Its a unique box something eveyone would love – who diesnt like chocolate!

  148. Angela P says:

    I love anything that has chocolate on them but chitchats have a special memories, I remember hiding them from anyone around me

  149. I didn’t know that sunflower seeds were a “candy” from the 1920s!

  150. Cindy Merrill says:

    I remember Chocolate Needhams from my childhood- a scrumpious coconut candy covered in dark chocolate….sort of like “MOUNDS” only better, portions 4 times larger.

  151. Margaret Puffer says:

    I love the facts on the box. The candy would be fun to share with my kids.

  152. Sarah Oswald says:

    I miss Wacky Wafers I loved them almost as much as peanut butter cups and Butterfingers but I havent seen those wafers for about 20 some years but I loved them.

  153. Darlene Carbajal says:

    So much candy that I love! This candy box will make a great gift for anyone. πŸ™‚

  154. This is such a fun & unique gift. I want to get one for my sister’s birthday.

  155. Christine says:

    I miss the candy from my childhood and I love the personalized note.

  156. I new to the site and I love it. I loved Almond Joy candy and Snickers.

  157. Heather D says:

    I think it is pretty awesome to have items that bring back memories. Certainly things with distinct smells and tastes can do it big time. I still remember my first Kit Kat bar. It was a revelation. I would be interested to see what products my box would include. Probably lots of gummy things and sour things πŸ™‚

  158. Patricia Centlivre says:

    I love the old candy! I didn’t know some of this stuff was still around.

  159. Terri S. says:

    It’s amazing how these old time candies can take me down memory lane to reminisce going to the movies with my siblings on Saturday afternoons. My brother always chose Jujyfruits, my sister picked Necco wafers and my favorite was Charleston Chews. Your daughter looks very happy with her gift for you. πŸ™‚

  160. jeanette sheets says:

    wow i love the personalized note.and these are some candys i gad as a child brings back memories!! love it !!

  161. I used to love Charleston Chews. My mom would freeze them so they were nearly impossible to chew. I bet we were a dentist’s dream come true, LOL.

  162. So many memories from childhood. Going into the store and our dad buying us candy bars! Love 5th Avenue!

  163. Dawn Monzu says:

    I had no idea that you could actually still get candy from your childhood!!! This is so awesome! I used to walk up to the drug store and buy my chico stix (only $25)! Yes…I’m dating myself, but what the heck. I would love to get this box. I wasn’t going to enter, but after seeing how much candy you actually get…heck yes!!!

  164. Amanda Alvarado says:

    I miss the candy from my childhood! I wonder if these are made the same with the same ingredients! Will they really taste the same?!?! LOL

  165. Lynn Solomon says:

    Great idea, so many candies I miss!

  166. marla king says:

    I love Cracker Barrel Restaurants because a lot of these old timey favorites you can still purchase in there.

  167. Frank Zumpf says:

    Best assortment of candy I’ve ever seen, love the box they come in to.

  168. Frank Zumpf says:

    Peter Paul Almond Joys, loved them as a kid, great tastong

  169. I would be a fan of a box from the 70’s. That is the candy I remember!

  170. natalie nichols says:

    This is so awesome. I know I would LOVE to receive this for mother’s day!! Who wouldn’t?

  171. Such a great idea! These would make great birthday gifts for my family.

  172. I love these boxes, they would make great birthday gifts and some of those candies bring back memories from childhood.

  173. These old school candies bring back lots of memories!

  174. wen budro says:

    Wow….that would make an awesome gift for Mother’s Day or for anybody’s birthday. I love that the boxes are decades themed so that you can choose the nostalgia you want to re-experience.

  175. Laurie AMERICAN yourpilgrim123 says:

    Some of these candies I have not seen in years. I love chocolate so I would seriously have to hide this from everyone.
    These are making me so hungry thinking about it all.

  176. Pamela F says:

    What a fun idea for a Monther’s Day gift! My mother used to love those “Skybars.” It would be fun to give her a nostalgic taste of chocolate.

  177. Bev Kangas says:

    This would be great for my mom as well, she’s a self-diagnosed chocaholic!

  178. I have a friend from Ireland named Sian. Pretty name! I really want to try that SkyBar.

  179. Nicole Given says:

    I love the fact that you can do decade boxes. perfect for my pops.

  180. Deborah W. says:

    I think this is such a great idea. Everyone remembers special candy from their childhood. I would love to receive one of these boxes. I remember my dad bringing home Zeros, Paydays, Clark bars and Zagnut bars that he would pick up at the gas station on his way home. It meant so much to my brother and me when he did this. Great memories.

  181. Laura Hattabaugh says:

    I love the fact that the box of nostalgic candy can be personalized.

  182. I like remembering the good times from my childhood and my favorite candy.

  183. Amanda N. says:

    Oh my goodness, I love the look on your daughter’s face. How fun to make her own personalized message for you. The decade boxes sound so fun. I bet more than a little nostalgia would fly back seeing (and eating) things like Charlston Chews that I haven’t even thought about since I was a kid! πŸ™‚

  184. Amy Jarratt says:

    These old time candies sure bring back good memories !

  185. nicole krutz says:

    Getting a box full of candy in the mail would make my kids month! LOL!

  186. Kristen M. says:

    The personalized note is a neat touch! I would love to get something like this for mother’s day, but my husband doesn’t like chocolate so I’d have to give some pretty hefty hints.

  187. Darlene Owen says:

    I so enjoy candy any kind is great, but I do so love the old time candy from my childhood.

  188. Crystal Rogers Walker says:

    I love this store they have all kinds of candy from my childhood, I order my husband Black licorace that is his favorite, everyone needs to try this place out, wouldn’t these make great Christmas gifts for families How surprized would they be and you know it would bring back memories

  189. Fee Roberts says:

    I love most of these candies, but my favorite candy when I was a kid was the Neapolitan Coconut Bars. I have a hard time finding them anymore.

  190. Thanks for bringing back the memories. My dad would have loved to have this. Now my mom has a sweet tooth and I don’t know how long one of the boxes would last. Mom is 74 still going strong. Of course, I bring her, atleast once a week, candy and chips. LOL!!!!

  191. Christina Sparks says:

    I remember eating the candy cigarettes when I would wait for a school bus on a cold day, and acting lke I was smoking.

  192. Cassandra Huber says:

    I am a candy fanatic. There are some candies from the 80’s and 90’s that I really wish were still sold. I’d buy these boxes for myself, and as gifts!

  193. What awesome memories this could bring back. I think it’s really cool you got to personalize the box. I miss the awesome candy from our childhoods.

  194. Cathy Jarolin says:

    Your review Brought back a lot of awesome memories. Especially remembering the Penny candy that was around when I was a kid. I would go to the store with my quarter and I was able to buy a bag full of penny candy and even a couple of candy bars. Candy Bars were 5 cents back then. 3 Musketeers were my Favorite Back then along with Mars Almond bars & Mounds Coconut Bars. :0)~~~

  195. Mary Rutter says:

    This would make a great gift.I loved the candy cigarettes

  196. karen hinkle says:

    love the box and all the chocolate in it ty for the infor

  197. Kim Hampton says:

    My favorite treat from childhood was Boston Baked Beans. My dad used to buy them for me when we visited my grandma in the nursing home, and they tasted SO good! I don’t even remember what the ingredients were, but I sure loved them.

  198. I absolutely love that this box is not only customizable, but that you can add your own customized note, etc. I agree, it’s so hard to find the old fashioned candy that we grew up loving. You can never have too much of a good thing, right??

  199. I do see quite a few I’d forgotten about! I know a couple people this would be a good gift for.

  200. I absolutely am jealous!! I love this concept and am thinking it would make a great gift for my husband! Thanks for sharing and I like the personalized message too!

  201. I totally remember Goo Goo Clusters πŸ™‚ We thought those were heaven on earth lol Bun was good too, but my favorite were Snickers. Unfortunately they were my dad’s favorite too, LOL I agree, we used to think we were so cool smoking candy cigarettes, πŸ™‚ Thanks for a walk down memory lane πŸ™‚

  202. What a fun gift! I have a big sweet tooth so would love to win this box, or get it as a gift!

  203. I love that there is actually a company that makes all these good old time candy it brings back good memories

  204. This would be so fun to win. There are so many candies that I used to eat as a kid and I would reminisce those innocent days riding my bike to the store to get some candy.

  205. Jaclyn Anne says:

    Wow, what a fantastic idea for a mother’s day gift – or gift for a birthday. I think my mother would love a box of memories of her childhood!

  206. sally gearhart says:

    Wow, what a great way to go down memory lane πŸ˜‰ i have fond memories of me & my twin sister being very little & walking to the corner store with our pocket change & it seemed like it took forever to pick out the few things we could actually buy, lol πŸ™‚ i know what her next B-DAY gift is gonna be!

  207. Alison Gibb says:

    I loved the 1000 dollar bar when I was a kid. This box sounds wonderful and fattening but who cares!! Your daughter did a great job personlizing it for you!!

  208. Y’ALL HAVE ALL MY FAVORITE CANDYS I LOVE YAS’ BLESSED BE Old Time Candy Chocolate Box Giveaway!!!

  209. I would be in heaven if my husband and kids bought me a box of chocolate. I would love to try some of the candy that was before my time or wasn’t available to me as a kid. There are some that I saw I know my husband would like. Like skor and the sky bar. He remembers those and loved them, but I had not!

  210. I like the do you remember facts on the actual box

  211. heidi eaton says:

    I love chocolate and caramel this box would not last long around me. Of course I would have to share with my husband. I would love to get a box like this.

  212. Super cute idea. I love the idea of old time candy all in 1 box.
    Kit kat is my favorite as it was a nick name!

  213. Tracy Robertson says:

    I like candy cigarettes. For some reason I thought that they were banned? I’m glad they have them but I wonder how they can do that?

  214. this is the neatest idea so neat to be able to get candy from your childhood. thankyou, ken

  215. My favorite candy from my childhood is Mounds, I always had trouble deciding between Mounds and Almond Joy.

  216. Arlene Mccurdy says:

    I loved candy

  217. Krystal Waters says:

    I would like to have the 80’s box there is so much candy that I haven’t seen in years.

  218. Deborah D says:

    Is that a mallo cup I see in the box? If so those are great and we can get them here in our area of Pennsylvania. Love those things!

  219. This is such a cute gift idea! It’s great to bring back feelings of nostalgia and memories of your childhood. Unfortunately, I have never even heard of some of the candies in your box, like the sky bar & bun. I can’t even believe there is a place that has candies like this that we haven’t seen around in many, many years.

  220. thanks for specifiying what was in the box, that’s one thing I was wondering about

  221. Patricia Cameron says:

    I remember a lot of the candy in the box, but has been a long time.

  222. Tamra Phelps says:

    I’ve been seeing Old Time Candy online for a while now. I am so tempted to get my brother a 70s box for his birthday!

  223. I could eat the screen

  224. Jenna Dorsey says:

    My favorite is reeses peanut butter cups & the candy that you could wear as a necklace then eat it. I always have candy in my bag at work on the ambulance for snacks

  225. I miss the ‘old time’ candies. When I find any of them, I’m immediately transported back to my carefree and innocent childhood.

  226. Kellie Murray says:

    All of the candies look yummy. I can feel a sugar rush just by looking at the pictures lol.

  227. Yummy, that’s all I can say πŸ™‚

  228. Arik Issan says:

    I have not had chocolate in seven years. Candy should be about flavors and sugar. And memories, I suppose.

  229. Rhonda R says:

    I loved ALL candy in my childhood! In particular, I loved Milky Ways, chocolate coins and footballs, and that Halloween wax harmonica! among many, many others!

  230. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I remember many of,these canines from when I was little. I haven’t seen wax lips in years

  231. Oh my!!! I remember those candy cigarettes. We were so cool. The Chick-O-Sticks, Bit O’ Honey and so many more. Sitting by the pool at the college my daddy worked, always with our candy at hand. You brought back some good memories.

  232. Joni Mason says:

    My favorite candy from my childhood was the Mlikshake candy bar. They quit making them but I would still love to try some of my other childhood favorites, such as the Oh Henry candy bar, These boxes will make a great gift for any occasion!

  233. thanks for having this giveaway. i love candy and be great one to win. i still can get some of this candy at walmart

  234. Heather Ann Barker says:

    Love all of the different candies from childhood. The picture on the box is beautiful and so is what your daughter wrote.

  235. Kathy Bose says:

    Thanks for the great review. These candies remind me so much of my carefree childhood. How I wish I could go back and experience that time again.

  236. Lynn K Shaffer says:

    I LOVE Old Time Candy. I have been buying from them for so many years. Never disappointed.

  237. belinda bell says:

    I love all the good old candies and the box the very fine.

  238. laura rubenstein says:

    I loved all candy lol but I really like Clark bars. They remind me of my childhood.

  239. May Lynn Mahler says:

    Isn’t funny how a candy can take you right back to your childhood? I can remember the smell, the texture the awesome huge balloon of a bubble I blew with the best tasting gum ever! ahh, thanks for the trip down memory lane…

  240. I don’t think I could possibly choose one favorite childhood candy – but the ones I loved best were Peanut Chews, Mallo Cups, Caramel Creams, Good & Plenty, and Teaberry gum!

  241. What a sweet personalized message from your daughter! I should suggest to my husband that I’d like a pile of chocolate for Mother’s Day. He’d better include some antacids, though. I don’t digest chocolate as well as I used to! πŸ™

  242. Pop Rocks. Who can forget those.

  243. Debbie Welchert says:

    Boy going to their site sure brought back a lot of memories. I can remember eating the pixie sticks, cigar bubblegum, Fruit Stripe gum and candy necklaces. I found a whole lot of things I want to get so my grandchildren can try what candy I had as a little girl.

  244. Sandra Watts says:

    OMG I remember candy cigarettes. Funny! My favorite is Snickers though.

  245. Matzsmith says:

    Besides the open face picture, I did not see any real nostalgia in that box, on the edge (wax lips and gum stick cigarettes), but not in the box. I would be hard felt it I ordered a (gift) box and it had any M&M’s, Reeces and Snickers in the mix.

    • Matzsmith if you look at the description it tells you what kinds you get and since it’s a mix yes you would get ones that are still around. The candies you can get specific decades if you didn’t want “current” candy. However in the first picture there are 5 “chocolates” that are from the 80s or earlier, this is not the “decades candy box” it’s a mix chocolate one, it wouldn’t have the wax lips etc.. because they are not chocolate. I have link to their full description. Thanks.

  246. I just love your daughter’s message! Swedish Fish was always a favorite of mine, but there are many favorites like: the old fashion Red Lace Licorice, candy cigarettes, Sugar Daddy’s, and the Candy dots on strips of paper.

  247. I think this would make such a fun gift. I miss all the fun candies we used to have!

  248. Oh wow, I totally forgot about the sky bar. I used to love those when I was a kid. There were many good candy bars that they stopped making. Hopefully, they’ll bring them back.

  249. Kasee Johnson says:

    A box of these candies would be so much more than just something to eat. The memories that each one could/would bring back are worth SO much more!

  250. Lisa Ward says:

    I love your daughter’s message.. great review. .

  251. Lisa Ward says:

    My favorite was the little buttons on like sheets of paper… also the wax bottles had juice inside them…reminds me of my gramps. .

  252. Love lots of the Old Time Candies. Candy Cigarettes, the candy dots that came on the paper, bottle wax, chuckles and more. One of my favorites is no longer around, it was the Marathon bar. Braided caramel covered with chocolate and it was about the size of a ruler. It was so good.

  253. justin orkin says:

    I think getting a big box of chocolate is a great idea, as long as they can avoid eating it all at once

  254. Dana Morin says:

    What a great review, I remember those cigg candy too! My favorite when I was a kid and now are the red fishes candies.

  255. christina moore says:

    My favorite candy as a child was babe ruth candy bar

  256. Leanna Morris says:

    Love so many “old time” candies. What a great way to get an assorment of some of those favorites!

  257. jawbreakers

  258. Lisa Schweizer says:

    I have so many fond memories from my childhood, candy necklaces were my favorite! Thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

  259. Marti Tabora says:

    I can’t believe it either, but candy cigarettes were the coolest thing ever when I was a kid. Nobody thought it was odd that we walked around with them pretending to smoke. I used to really love bottle caps too, they were great.

  260. Holly Thomas says:

    This is such a great company, their products bring back a lot of memories!

  261. I still remember the candy cigarettes from when I was a kid, I remember Chiclets also!

  262. I am glad to see that your daughter came up with a nice slogan for the box.

  263. Thanks so much for the Fantastic Review on Old Time Candy for Mother’s Day & More! WOW This candy sure does take a person back! I remember those candy cigarettes, Bit O Honey, and of course the 100 grand bar! I would absolutely love to be given a box of these candies! I’ve seen them before and I must say they really make you want a box! My birthday is right around Mother’s Day and I bet even if I ask for a box, I won’t get one! I love how nice and pretty and the wonderful writing on the box which you received! Very nice! Thanks so much for sharing your fantastic review, all the wonderful pictures, your personal and professional information on Old Time Candy for Mother’s Day & More with all of us! I definitely do appreciate it! Thanks so much! Michele πŸ™‚

  264. judy maharrey says:

    This does take me back to childhood! We used to have a “rolling store” come by our house, and sometimes if we could talk our mother into it, we would get some candy. It was so good!

  265. Carla Wiegand says:

    Hi !
    What a great gift your family bought for you! I bet your enjoying your candy, but how do you keep everyone else out of it? πŸ™‚ I love the idea and I think its great because it is very hard to find the candy we grew up with. Its a gift that will just warm your heart too! Love it !!!

  266. robyn donnelly says:

    I love chocolate overall but especially some of the bars from my childhood.
