Old Time Candy Review, Discount Code & Giveaway *CLOSED*



I know I'm not all that old, but I still remember a lot of the 80s candy at Old Time Candy. I also remember some of the 50s on candy that we used to buy int eh penny candy stores!! 

I loved a lot of the stuff we received from them for review. I got a 4lb box. I chose the All Decades box and got a little of everything.
 It took this picture the right way. Then I uploaded it. SORRY!!
Lots of goodies though. Things I remember, Junior Mints, Tootsie Roll, Sour Patch, Dots, Bit-O-Honey, Life Savers and LOTS more!! 
There was also a bunch of new stuff neither Jon nor I had heard of. But it was lots of fun trying them.
I had heard of razzles before, but never tried them. I love those little buggers. First they're candy, THEN they're gum! Pretty neat. 

I'm the candy eater here in the family. Jon ate some chocolate stuff and our friend (a 50s baby) was over and he was going crazy over all his childhood favorites. So we let him have some. But I ate all the gummy and sweet candy. 
Avery and I shared the Wax Bottles. She got them right away and enjoyed them. 

She also had a few smaller things, but I ate the majority of it. 

I like that they bring all those old favorites and bring them back around. 

FROM OLD TIME CANDY:
We have a lot of fun eating and selling the candy we ate as kids. Sometimes we are asked how we can sell 50 year old candy. It makes us smile and our response is that our candy is fresh from the manufacturer. We don't make the candy, we tracked down the manufacturers who are still in business and sell their candy on the Internet.

You can buy candy in bulk, individually, or you can buy decade boxes. 
HeatherandAvery 10% off through May 15th

Price: The Decade Boxes are $36 for 4 pounds or $23 for 2 pounds. And it's a collaboration of items in there. They also have Christmas and Birthday decade boxes!

Overall: ***** Loved this company. It brings back the memories!
