I've heard before that when trying to recall memories from long ago, your sense of smell and taste can prove even more powerful than sight. It seems that our brains really tie our past to specific smells and flavors.
Recently, I had the opportunity to experience one of the most yummy "blasts from the past" ever, because I received a 4 lb. decade box of 1980's candy from the Old Time Candy Company! Want to learn more about what was inside this box as well as what fun ensued because of it? Then, keep reading!
Old Time Candy specializes in bringing you over 400 fresh candies from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's and with their decade box assortments, you really can go back in time and remember the candy you ate as a kid! Since I was born in 1976, I was a child of the 80's and loved receiving this 4 lb. box of nostalgia. I was so surprised at just how many of my childhood memories were triggered by different pieces of candy!
The 1980's Decade Box included over 70 pieces of candy, 60 of which were completely original and not duplicates. There was everything in there that I loved eating when I was younger, such as Bubble Tape, Fun Dip, Sprees, Reese's Pieces, Gobstoppers and Chewy Sweetarts. My husband and I dove head first into this box and started laughing and talking about what was inside and the memories we had associated with each.
I got to hear all about the HUGE Sugar Daddy he bought one summer, which took him over 5 days to eat, and he got to hear about my softball-playing adventures while eating Bubble Tape. We had so much fun with the 1980's Decade Box, that one day my husband even challenged me to an Atomic Fireball eating challenge, which I hadn't done since I was in the 5th grade!
If you are looking for a fun and unique gift for an upcoming birthday, Mother's Day, Father's Day or Easter, then I highly recommend shopping the large selection of Decade Boxes from Old Time Candy Company. They know how to make your trip down memory lane a sweet and delicious one!
