Woodstock Candy of the 80's Review & Giveaway ends 8/29 Daily US

 
We have been in business since 1992.

My name is Bridget, and I am a baby boomer.

I remember back when I was a kid, we would ride our bikes to Folk Art of Woodstock to buy penny candy with our allowance. We could choose between Mary Janes, Bit-O-Honey, Kits, Wax Bottles, Candy Buttons on Paper, Jawbreakers, BB Bats, Pixy Stix, Fireballs and other candies that were in the glass jars. Thinking back, I realize how much patience Nina, the proprietor, had with us kids.

We started selling candy in 1992 and realized people loved seeing the nostalgic candy they grew up with. There was an actual demand for it! Selling candy online is not the same as being face to face with children counting out their pennies, but it's still rewarding to sell the very same candies that I grew up with. The nostalgia of this retro candy reminds me of being a kid, and I hope that when you see a collection of this candy, you'll go back in time as well.
 I was born in 1980 and my husband in 81 so this review of Nostalgia Candy Memories From the '80s was a great way to bring back childhood memories. I waited until my family was together to open the box up and it was funny the look my son gave over candy cigarets. Man do I miss being a kid and taking my allowance up to the store and getting a big bag of candy and meeting up with my friends going to the park and eating all the candy. Those were the care free days where we played outside all day and didn't have to come home until the street lights came on. I loved sharing the candy with my family & friend and the box didn't last long. This would make a great gift for anyone. I loved the Jolly Rancher stick the best :)  
Now for the giveaway: One lucky person will win a Nostalgia Candy - Memories From the '80s box. This is open to the US only and ends 8/29 @ 11:59 pm est.
