Candy from the 1940s – great gift idea

Now this is amazing. It is a package of classic candies from the 1940s , so if you are looking for a birthday gift or retirement gift for someone that was born at that time, this is sure to bring a lot of memories :)

I recognize some of the brands, but not others (I’m not from that time :)). They include : BB Bats, Bit O’ Honey, Bubble Gum Cigars, Canada Mints, C Howard Violet Gum, Candy Buttons, Candy Cigarettes, Charms Squares, Chuckles, Coconut Bars, French Chew, Jujubes, Kits Taffy, Long Boys, Pearson’s Salted Nut Roll, Red Hots, Sen Sen, Smith Brothers Licorice, Snaps, Sugar Daddy Pops, Teaberry Gum, Black Taffy, Bulls Eye’s Caramel Creams, Chick O Stick Nuggets, Necco Assorted Wafters, Root Beer Barrels, Slo Pokes & Walnettos. They say that the total weight is around 2 pounds, more than 50 pieces of candy.

The same company prepares similar gifts for other decades so look for the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, 1980's… So there you have, not only a good gift idea for someone in their 70s. but also for people in their 60s, 50s, 40s… just count backwards :)

It is an emotive gift, and quite inexpensive for the size of it.

I hope someone is still making this stuff when I’m older – it would be awesome to open the box and find all the memories from childhood.
