I bought this for my granddad for Christmas. (He was born in the 30s.) He absolutely loved it! It was a great trip down memory lane. All the candy was fresh, full-sized, and the correct era.

This is a box of pleasant memories of my childhood days. I can recall counting my pennies as I rode my bike to the corner grocery or drug store to select one of these candy favorites! My personal favorite has always been licorice flavored candies.

We purchased this basket for my parents who are in their 80's. They are really enjoying it. Hill's Cough Drops were a hit right off since they both have colds. Said it had been 75 years since they'd seen that product. There's a lot of reminising going on as they browse all of the items. The "Bun" candy bar, which used to be made in nearby Ft. Wayne, was fun to come across. Mom found herself checking the label to see that it's now made and it's somewhere in the western US. They have placed various calls to me to relate a story to us about special discoveries included in the gift! Perfect!!

My Mother called and just recieved this assortment. She LOVES it. She said it is a large box, filled with full sized candy and she remembered many of them.
She was very suprised and said it was the best gift she has recived so far. The product was true to the description and was well worth the money.

My father-in-law loved it! Xmas with family wasn't just fun for the kids. The "older" adults really got a kick out of seeing memories in a box! And quick service made it great for me!

Bought this for my mother for Christmas. It was an add-on gift, but I am so glad I got it. She lit up like one of my kids getting a iPod!! She looked at each kind of candy and shared some memories. My father chimed in, too! A great gift!

Hometown Favorites 1940's Nostalgic Candy Gift Box, Retro 40's Candy. It was a Christmas present, we all enjoyed remembering and trying the candy. You best like black licorice, as you won't find many modern candy flavors.
