Raisinets consist of sun-ripened, juicy California raisins covered in chocolate. Introduced in 1927, Raisinets were originally made by the Blumenthal Brothers Chocolate Company of Philadelphia.Before developing Raisinets, the Blumenthal Chocolate Company had produced two other classic brands, Sno-Caps®and Goobers®. A favoriteof movie-goers for nearly 50 years, Sno-Caps were first introduced in theearly 1920s. Goober is a southern word for peanut, and was a natural choice as a brand name for the milk-chocolate covered peanuts first avail-able in 1925.The Blumenthal family ran the candybusiness from 1905 until it was sold in 1969. The company sold a box of Goobers or Raisinets for 1.25 cents to the theaters, which in turn sold each box for a nickel. The candy was also sold at New York subways. After several ownership changes, Nestle®finally bought the rights in 1984 to produce Goobers, Raisinets and Sno-Caps. Source: www.candywrappermuseum.com

I loved a chocolate bar called a Lunch Bar. It had a pretty wrapper of deep turq blue, with a pink neon lettering. It didn't last long, and it should have. My very favorite...candy is one no one will remember...It was only found in Movie theatres in the 1950s. It was a package..an open white paper tray, with cellophane on it, and it contained what appeared to be Giant M and Ms..they tasted like JOTS.(the poor kids M and M) They were the same colors as M and M's, but were an off brand. They were a tad smaller than a quarter...and there were about 12 to a box. I remember the Sprint bar, too. It was a gourmet bar from M and M ? Layered wafered chocolate..with a chocolate cream filling...and I remenber Hersheyettes..shaped like little footballs. Jujubes were always a strange alien puzzle to me, but delicate, and bearable.

Hollywood and Milkshake bars were 3¢ when all the others were 5¢.
Someone mentioned the Seven-Up bar which was like buying a miniature connected box of assorted chocolates.

Favorite was frozen Charleston Chew bars ! The Marathon bars (frozen) were good also.

Neccos seem to be universally dispised (at least according to this forum). Obviously some people do enjoy them or they wouldn't still be in business. Anyone...?

My ex-husband and my son love them, could live off them. They aren't so crazy about the chocolate though.

Oh the memories!! I remember vanilla and banana flavored taffy as being something I could live on. Three musketeers yes, and anyone remember milkshake bars? chocolate nougat in white chocolate coating. and yes, any candy bar frozen, especially in the summer.
mallow cups are awesome. and heath bars.
the only candy I really remember hating was good and plenty.
I was not a picky child.

They WERE nasty.

Loved and still love:

Snickers
Heath Bars (not Skors)
$100,000. Bar

Milky Ways
The now defunct Caravelle Bar (sob)
Nestle Crunch Bar
Russell Stover choco bunnies (heads bitten first)
Brach's Mellocreme pumpkins (can we say "Halloweenishere??!")
Zotz

Junque I loved as a kid:

Pixie Stix
Sprees
Sweet Tarts
Candy buttons on paper (which look like LSD candy)
MILK SHAKE Bars (oh my!)
Pop Rocks
Those banana-flavored taffy lollipops

Candy I can't abide:

Tootsie Rolls
Jaw Breakers
Almond Joy
Mounds
Black licorice
Root beer barrels
Milk Duds

hmm...I wonder if it's all the food coloring in those bright easter eggs that gives them that bitter aftertaste??

Anyway, as far as candy I that really sticks out in my mind from when I was little:

I remember marvelling at the changing colors and layers of a jawbreaker; a necklace you could EAT, bead by bead; the way cotton candy just MELTS in your mouth (when we were lucky enough to get it!); milk duds (they really DO look remarkably like deer droppings - my dad was a bit of a jokester); and MACKINTOSH's toffee (gotta remember that red and plaid box)! Oh yes, and jelly beans and candy canes, of course! and Oh Henry! and Eat-More candy bars.

I also remember Mom's yummy homemade peppermint patties...MMM!

I'm a candyholic. I liked/like any candy (including Necco Wafers) except these:

Milky Way
Mars Bars
3 Musketeer
Circus peanuts
Peeps
Walnettos, or any candy with walnuts
Sour cherry Jolly Rancher

Hershey chocolate (I'm a chocolate snob who can't abide Hershey chocolate. It smells like baby sick to me)

That nasty dill pickle flavored hard candy sucker from the mid sixties. I just had to try it....

But my all time favorite candies that I still buy almost every time I head to the store: Lemon drops and root beer barrels.

i love peanut M&Ms and i have to tell you the story...When i was a young woman and had the horrible monthly curse, my Dad always gave me a hot water bottle for my abdomen and a bag of peanut M&Ms....never failed, but no words exchanged.Just thought he was being a nice guy....I never knew the connection of my Mom craving chocolate and he assuming I did-i liked salty!!!Nevertheless, when my Father went to the Mayo clinic to have his lung cancer further investigated, at the airport i slipped a bag of peanut M&Ms in his pocket..he looked at me quite funny, and then his face softened and he said "Thanks, Goofy"(my nickname forever)He survived the lung cancer, by the way....

I use to love those candy lipsticks that were covered with gold foil that were a funny red color and kind of soft(not the ones available today). I found out that they are discontinued. I also loved Astro Pops and I think they are discontinued too. I would take an Astro Pop to the movies and it would last me through the whole show.

Though not technically a candy I absolutely love cin. candy apples. Can't wait until cool weather so I can get my fill of these.
