Holiday Gift Guide ~ Day 17 ~ Old Time Candy

When you were little did you parents take you to the candy store and just let you go? Let you take in all of the sights and smells. Maybe you got to grab a few samples to test. Maybe you had a few dollars and got to pick out your favorite pieces of candy to take home? Some of those moments came back to me and I remembered how I felt when I received my box from Old Time Candy to review! 

Old Time Candy offers candy going all the way to back to pre-1920s! And of course you can find all of your favorites of today! The have a lot of different decade boxes for you to choose and they come in 2 or 4 pound boxes. Also holiday themed boxes and chocolate boxes! And many many options to build your own box and just straight up buy you favorite candies. 

How do you figure out what box to get? They suggest thing about when you (or the person you are buying the box for) was 10 years old. That's the decade box for you! 

I was born in the early 80s and went with the 1980s Decade Box. I opened it up and it was like my treasure chest didn't end. Ooohh there are Pop Rocks! Oh one of my favorites Razzles! I haven't had a Cow Tale in years! I wonder if I can still handle a Crybaby without making a face? That answer is no by the way because I had to try it out! 

It was better than any night I ever did trick or treating. And finding a couple of true treasures in the box really took me back! 


I didn't even know they made the cigarette candy anymore. Found a box of those in mine! Giant Sweetarts and Pop Drops I missed out on because I had never seen either one of them before!

Razzles and Reese's Pieces are my two favorites today and we included in my box. My daughter immediately went for the Ring Pop and Push Pop in the box. 

If you are looking for something fun to have with the family gathering I suggest trying out a Decade Box of Old Time Candy. Imagine sitting around on Christmas day and someone breaks out a box. Everyone will get a smile on their face and it'll open up the chance to share stories about what memories come back about the candy. There were several pieces in the 80s box that my daughter had not seen before! Imagine getting a box from earlier! 

And thanks to the wonderful people at Old Time Candy we have a box to giveaway to one lucky Clair's Freebies fan! To enter for your chance to win simply use the Rafflecopter below! Giveaway ends on 12/18 at 11:59 pm eastern time. 
Good Luck!!
