7 Nostalgic Christmas Candies, Do You Remember These?
I loved the Advent calendar that had the little pieces of chocolate behind each window. I was a pretty simple candy eater as a child, anything with peanut butter and chocolate and I was happy. I certainly didn't make my parents happy, they were always buying the Christmas candy we now call nostalgic and I would turn my nose up at it. Like the gum drops in the picture, not a fan! Check out this list, do you remember any of these, did you like them? Do you have a memory of Christmas candy I didn't list?
I didn't mind the milk chocolate santas, but they were missing the peanut butter. It was a glorious day when Reese's decided to start making their candy bars in shapes!
These were very popular (at least with my mom). Again, I turned up my nose because there wasn't any peanut butter involved. She even tried to entice me by buying high class Russel Stover santas. Evidently I was a hard to please kid!
I tried to like these, I really did! I didn't mind the individually wrapped filled strawberry hard candies though. Still not peanut butter and chocolate though!
We ALWAYS had these and I could usually find some favorites like lime or grape. But, there was always those mishaps when I would end up with an "icky" flavor and have to spit it out. Seriously, how do you describe the flavor of a piece of lavender candy other than "icky" when you're 6?
Ok, half way there. These candies DID have chocolate in them, it was the "straw" part I wasn't fond of.
There's a story behind these. We heated our home with oil and during the holidays when the oil man would make a delivery they would give us a box. I doubt that they do that anymore and frankly, I don't mind. Remember these? You'd bite into them and the clear liquid that surrounded the cherry would squirt out. Um, yeah....not a fan.
Looks festive, I'll give ya that. I absolutely adore Peppermint Bon Bon ice cream, but unless it's gum peppermint anything isn't my fave. However, if you remember Hot Air Candy I liked that, but again it involved chocolate.
