All right, I admit it: I have a sweet tooth. Growing up, I couldn’t get enough of it. I always had a glass jar filled with colorful drops, gummi bears and licorice. I loved anise, caramel, double lollies and woodruff leaves. So guess how excited I was to find vintage candy stores online – from candy bars to necklaces, most of them offer sweets from all decades.
Old time Candy, for example, lists candy from the 1920s through 90s – all fresh and mouthwatering of course. Hometown Favorites starts in the 50s, specializing in “hard to find” tidbits that will remind you of a bygone world. Same goes for Nostalgic candy, another store that takes its customers right back to their childhood days by selling Dubble Bubble Gumballs or bubblegum cigarettes.
