Now that I'm getting older, my friends & family are getting older too. In the past few years I've been invited to several "key" birthdays. 40, 50 and even 60 years old. I find it hard to believe that I could be reaching those milestones myself. But what is even harder is to find a birthday gift for these aging people. By the time we reach these ages we either buy what we want or what we want is too expensive for a gift. So what to do?
I love what Old Time Candy offers. You can buy what is called a "decade box" which is full of candy eaten as a kid. From the pre 20's right through the 90's.
I was sent a 70's box loaded with these candies:
Atomic Fire Balls, BB Bats, Bit-O-Honey, Blow Pops, Bubblicious Bubble Gum, Candy Buttons on paper tape, Candy Cigarettes, Candy Necklace, Candy Watch, Gobstoppers, Home Run Baseball Gum, Hershey Special Dark Bar, Jawbreakers, Kits Taffy, Laffy Taffy, Lemonheads, Life Savers Swirled Pops, Lik-M-Aid Fun Dip, Necco Wafers, Now & Laters, Peanut Butter Bars, Pixy Stix, Pop Rocks, Razzles, Reese's Pieces, Rolo, Root Beer Barrels, Sixlets, Smarties, Sugar Daddy, Swedish Fish, Tootsie Pops, Wax Bottles (Nik-L-Nips), Wax Lips, Whatchamacallit and Zotz Sours.
