Oldies but Goodies

I don’t believe in “retro candy”. We don’t think of Snickers or Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as retro, yet they’ve been around as long as Tootsie Rolls or Heath Bars. Some candies are simply classic, they endure because they’re good at what they do. Here’s an interview I did for Professional Candy Buyer.

  1. Clicking them gets me a “This photo is private” message.  The pictures look nice, though.

    Dang, I am really sorry about the snafu with the large size image. I fixed it now.

  6. Really fun post, Cybele, thanks.
    I presume it would be hard to find the starting year for some of them…
    Re: the Cup-O-Gold, it looks like a candy that my husband goes crazy (and out of his way) for:  Mallow Cup (chocolate cup with wafer bottom and gooey yummy marshmallow filling).  He grew up in PA and I think the candy is made there or East Coast.  We are now finding it more and more in the Midwest.  Would you like some?
    Re: others… How about Baby Ruth and Butterfinger? Are they old enough to be part of this line-up?
    Cheers, TriciaGab

  7. I’ll second that, when it comes to the Necco Wafers! I’m curious to see though, how many ‘Wafer-Haters’ leave you a comment about that. lol…

    I don’t like the brown, green and white ones though. So I have a huge container full of those. Anyone have any ideas for creative ways to use those?

  8. While I respectfully disagree with your thoughts on retro candy, I think this is a great look at some great brands.  I might have to use it as a checklist of sorts.  :D Btw, I have absolutely fallen in love with the Clark Bar since you reviewed the newest iteration!  I’d never had one before, and they are ridiculously good, basically my new favourite candy bar.
