Old Time Candy Company: 1970's Decades 4lb Box Review

Disclosure: We received the below products in exchange for our honest review. All opinions and experiences are our own and may vary from yours. 

Old Time Candy 
 Old Time Candy is located in LaGrange, Ohio and owned by Karen and Donny Ray. They grew up in the late fifties and early sixties. Back in 1999 they walked into a large candy store in Cleveland, Ohio, that's when this all started. This store specialized in old time candy, Karen and Donny had no idea that many of their old time favorites still existed. They went online in early 2000 with their first candy assortment and began to grown. In 2003, they moved into a larger facility and expanded at the beginning of 2004. Then again in 2006 they moved into a much larger facility and this is where they've been located since. 2015 marks the 15th Anniversary for their candy business.

1970's Decades Box (4lbs)
I was so excited when I was presented the opportunity to choose and review a Decade's Box from Old Time Candy Co. They offer Decade's Boxes from 1990 all the way back to 1920! I knew right away which decade I wanted, I chose 1970's. My mom isn't a huge chocolate fan and after receiving this box of candies from her childhood I can see why, there wasn't nearly as much chocolate in this box as we have today. I'm also not big on chocolate so it was a win win for us. My mom was pretty excited when I received the box and went to share with her. There were definitely some candies that she hadn't seen in years and didn't know they were still being made. My grandma also loved the candies in this box, she's always had a sweet tooth. 

  4 lb Decade Gift Box opened 

Our 1970's Decades Box included; 
100 Grand Bar, Atomic Fire Balls, BB Bats, Bit-O-Honey, Blow Pops, Boston Baked Beans, Bottle Caps, Bubble Gum Cigars, Butterscotch Disks, Candy Buttons on paper tape, Candy Cigarettes, Candy Necklace, Candy Ring, Caramel Creams (Bull's Eyes), Charleston Chew, Charms Assorted Squares, Charms Sweet Pops, Chick-o-Stick, Cinnamon Disks, Dubble Bubble Gum, French Chew Taffy, Fruit Stripe Gum, Gobstoppers, Good & Plenty, Home Run Baseball Gum, Hershey Special Dark Bar, Hot Dog Bubble Gum, Hot Tamales, Jawbreakers, Kit Kat, Kits Taffy, Laffy Taffy, Lemonheads, Lik-M-Aid Fun Dip, Lollies, Marshmallow Ice Cream Cones, Mike & Ike, Necco Wafers, Now & Laters, Peanut Butter Bars, Pixy Stix, Pop Rocks, Razzles, Red Hots, Reese's Pieces, Ring Pops, Rolo, Sixlets, Smarties, Peppermint Sticks, Sugar Daddy, Swedish Fish, Tootsie Pop Drops, Tootsie Pops, Tootsie Roll, Wax Bottles (Nik-L-Nips), Wax Lips, Whatchamacallit, York Peppermint Patties and Zotz Sours.

For a detailed candy list for all decades please visit Old Time Candy's Typical Decade Candy List.


Every devoured the candies in this box. It was quite funny watching my 9 year old and 5 year old asking, "What is this?" about so many candies. My daughter tried Wax Bottles for the first time, my grandma and my boys enjoyed the Marshmallow Ice Cream Cones and so much more. I couldn't believe how quick this candy disappeared. As you can see above, I was left with lots of empty wrappers. 

A decade's box would be a wonderful surprise for your parents or grandparents. It would also be fun to share old memories of old time candies with your own children, they probably haven't seen, tasted or even heard of about half the candies from your childhood. 

Another thing I loved from my 9 year old daughter, "These candies are that old?!". Yes honey, most candies have been around at least as long as I've been alive and I'm only 26 years old.

  5. I would pick the 1950's Decade Box. That is my Era and I would love to have my Grandchildren see and taste the Candy that me and Grandpa grew up with! I only remember a few Candies back then..I couldn't find anywhere on the site where it actually showed you what was inside the different Decade boxes! A Little disappointing! Would love to win!

    1. Hi Cathy, I'm sorry. I know it's a bit difficult to find the candy list, I definitely should have included that in my review, I will add it now. You can find what candies are included in each decade box through the link above below the section where I stated what was in the 1970's box that I reviewed. Good luck!

    2. I would pick 1970 decade box. I like the candy. Getting into the 80's you get lots of sour candy.

  13. I think I would pick the 1980s box just because that's the decade I was born in. I think my favorite things in there would be Sour Patch Kids and Caramello Bars.

  14. Thanks for the Wonderful Review on Old Time Candy Company: 1970's Decades 4lb Box Review! I think it's so funny how our kids don't know about some of the candies we had growing up! I know that my kids will be asking the same questions! I love the 1970's box! It's a trip down memory lane! We do not get much candy in our home because I just can't afford it when I grocery shop! I'm on such a tight budget that purchasing something, as my husband calls it, not what we really need!, it's hard to slip it in! Every now and then I'll slip in something for the kids, candy wise! Both myself and my husband are disabled from a hit and run auto accident and I have my 2 children and my 2 grandchildren here with us! It's been difficult to say the least and I haven't even gotten the ok to do any Christmas shopping! I would love to receive this boxed candy! Thanks so much for sharing your review and for the wonderful giveaway! I truly honestly do appreciate it! Thanks again so very much! Michele :)

  15. So hard to decide! I am not sure which box I'd want. Either the 1950's so I could see what was available when my mom and dad were growing up or the 70's to revisit mine.

  21. I would love to have the 1980's Decade box as I grew up on that candy, I have many memories of going to the baseball card shop and buying some of this candy for 5 cents a piece!

  22. I would pick the 1960's box so I could share with my Granddaughter the candy I enjoyed as a child. She would be thrilled to get her own box of candy for Christmas.

  23. These boxes look so fun. While the 80's was my decade box based on their selection criteria of being 10 during that decade, I think I would love to try the 60's box because fruit strip gum is awesome and I love Now & Laters!

  24. I would pick the 1970s decade candy box because it was the decade I was born and I love all the sweet tart type candies that were so popular then like Wonka Gobstoppers and Bottlecaps.

  26. I would choose from the 70's or 80's. I'm thinking I would pick Bubble Tape original flavor. Or even bananaramas. So many fun choices!
