Reminiscing on the good ole days of childhood brings back so many memories. Playing ball in the park, staying up late at a friends house, or even family road trips come to mind. Just a few days ago I had a chance to think about my childhood days; when it seemed like the days were less frantic. One memory in particular that brought a smile to my face was thinking about when my friends and I would pick out our favorite candies from the local store. Modern day candy just doesn't feel the same. There is something about old fashioned candy that makes me smile. Today's candy is no match to the likes of: Teaberry gum, Necco wafers, Boston Baked Beans, root beer barrels, or Abba Zaba. Each one of these yummy candies brings about associations to different childhood memories. Since many of these candies are no longer sold in stores it got me thinking, what are some fun ways to celebrate these retro candy favorites? One idea that came to mind was to order a bunch of old time candy from the internet and throw a party with a nostalgic theme. One approach could be to send out invitations that have a classic look to them encouraging guests to dress according to the decade they were born in. Then you can surprise them all by setting up appropriate decorations and music, but more importantly, creatively displaying some of the nostalgic candy you ordered. Not only does candy serve as a great decoration, but it is the perfect conversation piece. When guests notice some of the candies they haven't had in years they will have to get a taste. Everyone is surely to have a story of their favorite childhood candy memory. Another way to celebrate with nostalgic candy is to send it as a gift. There are websites that sell nostalgic candy by itself or as a bunch that is neatly arranged into a gift box. What a great way to send a thank you to a friend or anyone else. Once I received a whole bunch of retro candy as a business gift. There were about fifteen different kinds of old fashioned candy that I hadn't seen in years. The fun part was sampling each candy and reminiscing with my family about those times as a kid. Who wouldn't love getting some of their old time favorites in the mail? A friend of mine used old fashioned candy at their kid's birthday party and it was a hit! It makes sense; we love old time candy not just for the memories but because it tastes good too. Kids these days still get excited over gum cigarettes, circus peanuts, gold mine gum, or even rock candy. You could use nostalgic candy as a thank you gift to the party guests or create a game and hand out the candy as a prize. I have also heard of parents putting their old time favorite candies in their children's stockings at Christmas. To their surprise, the kids loved it and said something like, "why


don't we have cool candy like this today?" These are just a few of many ideas to bringing back some old favorite candies. No matter your preference of old fashioned candy there is certainly a fun story to go with it. This is why we all love retro candy so much; it's fun! More than just eating candy, nostalgic candy provides stories and entertainment with friends, kids, neighbors, or co-workers. Give it a try and expect a real big smile!
