Old Time Candy,com Review
**** I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion****
We are Karen and Donny Ray and our business is located in LaGrange, Ohio. We grew up in the late fifties and early sixties and are certified “baby boomers.” It cost 50 cents to go the “picture show” and a large bag of popcorn from the “dime store” was only a dime (really!). We remember the first McDonald’s in Cleveland when the burgers were 15 cents and the fries sold for 12 cents. Those were the days!
This adventure began in July, 1999 when we walked into a large candy store in Cleveland, Ohio that specializes in old time candy. We had no idea that many of our old time favorites still existed. It was the candy we ate as kids. Necco Wafers, Candy Buttons on paper tape, Wax Lips, Candy Cigarettes. Amazing!
We went on-line in early 2000 with our first candy assortment and began to grow. In 2003 we moved into a larger facility and expanded at the beginning of 2004. We moved into a much larger facility in August of 2006 where we are located today. 2015 began our 15th year in the candy business. Thanks for helping us be successful. We hope you like what we do and will continue to support us with your purchases and referrals.
Just a week ago my cousin came home to visit from Florida, and we were reminiscing about our childhood growing up. We spent so much time story telling from one story to the next ,belly laughing.
We talked about being superhero’s and how our Jido(grand father) made us costumes, capes,wrist bands, head bands and belts out of tin foil.
Everyday we were a different super hero and we were off fighting villans. Our grand father even made us sheilds out of card board and tin foil. We were kids with great imagination and were full of adventure, we even built forts and hide outs, played hide and go seek.
We would get change from our grand father back in the day and go to the corner candy store for all of our favorite candies. We would buy Now and Laters, Chico Sticks, Lemon Heads, Red Hots, Mike and Ike, Slap Sticks, Mary Janes, Bit O Honey, Tootsie Pops, Charms Blow Pops, Laffy Taffy, Dots, The little wax bottles with juice in them,wax lips, Fun dip, Jaw Breakers, and so many more.
We talked about our trips to candy store and all of our favorite candies , and all the fun we had, we laughed and laughed. Then I told him about this candy review that I had coming in mail. I have to say that we were like little kids all over again, as we clicked through decades of candies from Old Time Candy.com. It brought back so many childhood memories.
