Old Time Candy is such a fun website for the candy lover, as in, all of us! You can walk the virtual candy aisle, which arranges all of your favorite candies in alphabetical order, with photos! And you can sort candy by decade, flavor, type, occasion, and more. You can buy candy in bulk, pack a bag of candy, and sort retro toys as well. One of the coolest things you can do is make a candy gift. These are good for ANY occasion, but one occasion I think is pretty awesome is to find that perfect birthday gift for a loved one, young and old. That’s where sorting it by decade comes in handy. Whether you’re gifting new candy, or old fashioned candy, or a mix of both, you can have fun shopping for all the goodies! From corporate gifts to candy gift mugs, it’s fun to give candy.
The Candy Store Candy You Ate as a Kid:
In my household, giving subscription boxes is a real win. At Old Time Candy, you can subscribe to your favorite candy products, or that of a loved one, and choose how regularly your gift recipient will receive the candy. There are flexible delivery dates with real time notifications before each delivery so that you can keep track of the shipments. And there are no long term commitments. You can cancel the program at any time by logging into your account.
Candy Birthday Ideas:
You can find the perfect gift with candy. I just had a birthday and what did I want? That’s right. Candy. Candy can be so powerful because it can bring loved ones back to the cherished days of childhood, and can help relive a treasured memory. I remember eating Starburst as a kid, in order to pass the time in 8th grade. I love it to this day! Old Time Candy has good options for birthday candy, like ordering a gift box of candy from your favorite decade, or packing your own assortment with the Pack-a-Bag option. You can buy bulk candy in 2 lb. or 5 lb. bags, as well as whole cases. Or you can take a slow walk down the virtual candy aisle!
Birthday candy gifts come with a free, handwritten gift card like the ones you get from a florist. You can enter your message while checking out and they really are handwritten by Old Time Candy staff! If you’re looking to delay a birthday gift to arrive in time for an event, there’s that option during checkout. And the website has birthday ideas by decade, if you’re feeling stumped about what to get your loved one. I think this is so cool! I clicked on “40th birthday gifts” and saw some awesome candy gifts from the 80s and 90s, like Atomic Fireballs (remember those?) and Blow Pops too.
We have many fond memories of going to an old fashioned candy store as kids, and I like to take my kids to candy stores these days too. I find that there are still old fashioned candy stores out there, and there are new candy stores as well. I love that Old Time Candy is a perfect mix of the old and new. It’s sure to make anyone smile.
