Retro candy is just about irresistible to young and old alike. From wax lips to Nik-L-Nips, BB Bats to bite-sized Kits, retro candy appeals to the nostalgia of a simpler, more innocent time. And for kids, it's all brand new. If there are children who don't like root beer barrels, I haven't met them.

Of course, nostalgia isn't limited to the Boomer generation. What strikes a chord for you might be the gold gum nuggets that came in a drawstring bag, or pacifier pops, bubblegum tape or Pop Rocks. Remember Sweetarts and Sugar Daddies, Charleston Chews and hot dog gum? Did you wear your candy necklace until your neck looked like it had been tie-dyed?

Retro Candy Makes an Imaginative Gift

If your brother-in-law is turning 40 or you're going to visit an old school friend, what better gift than a collection of retro candy? Many online candy merchants offer selections packaged by decades. The '50s collection might contain Saf-T-Pops, Hot Tamales and Pixie Stix, while the 70s collection could include Chick-O-Stix, Bottlecaps and Razzles.

Retro candy isn't just confined to the groovy stuff, either. Old-fashioned candy sticks, horehound drops, sassafras candy, and molded maple sugar treats are also available from online merchants. All of these types of retro candies are still being produced, which means your order will be fresh. They just aren't widely distributed any more. Online shopping makes it easy to find just about anything you're looking for.
