Old Time Candy Will Delight Any Senior Citizen With A Sweet Tooth
When a store opened nearby and offered a selection of old time candy, I knew that I’d found a perfect stocking stuffer to delight my Mom. The store had barrels of candy separated into eras such as 1920’s, 1930’s, etc.
I selected candies that I knew my Mom would have enjoyed in her youth, and I was right! She savored every piece of these old time candy favorites.
Mom’s favorites were always Cherry Mash candies – a soft, chewy cherry center (not too sweet) covered in chocolate. What’s not to like????
When we used to visit her parents in St. Joe, Mo, Dad would buy a whole box of them – this was when they were a quarter pound each. Those days are long gone but that mini Cherry Mash old time candy you see to the left is still delicious!
Note; before buying candy for an elderly loved one, make sure there are no dietary restrictions. You can find sugar free candies that may be more suited to someone with a medical issue such as diabetes, obesity, etc.
Old Time Retro Candy By Decade
When I was buying retro candy for my own Mom, I matched the decade to that time in her life when she probably enjoyed sweets; that would be the 1940s for her. Her favorite candies of that era were the dots and the hard taffy.
