WOODSTOCK CANDY REVIEW.
My name is Bridget, and I am a baby boomer.
I remember when I was a kid, we would ride our bikes to Folk Art of Woodstock to buy penny candy with our allowance. We could choose between Mary Janes, Bit-O-Honey, Kits, Wax Bottles, Candy Buttons on Paper, Jawbreakers, BB Bats, Pixy Stix, Fireballs and other candies that were in the glass jars. Thinking back, I realize how much patience Nina, the proprietor, had with us kids.
We started selling candy in 1992 and realized people loved seeing the nostalgic candy they grew up with. There was an actual demand for it! Selling candy online is not the same as being face to face with children counting out their pennies, but it's still rewarding to sell the very same candies that I grew up with. The nostalgia of this retro candy reminds me of being a kid, and I hope that when you see a collection of this candy, you'll go back in time as well
WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT WE WERE GOING TO BE GETTING TO REVIEW SOME OF THE CANDY FROM WOODTOCK, I WAS SO EXCTED THAT I WOULD BE ABLE TO LET MY GIRLS TRY SOME CANDY FROM WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I WERE YOUNGER.WHEN THE PACKAGE GOT HERE MY HUBBY WAS SO EXCITED. HE OPENED THE BOX AND WAS IN AWE OF HOW MUCH CANDY THERE WAS. HE SAID WOW THATS ALOT OF CANDY. THEN HE WENT THRU THE BOX AND WAS TALKING ABOUT EACH AND EVERY KIND OF CANDY IN THE BOX. THE GIRLS WERE LIKE DADDY COME ON I WANT TO TRY SOME PLEASE. LOL. THEY COULDNT WAIT. I TOOK ALOT OF PICTURES OF MY GIRLS TRYING DIFFRENT CANDY'S. WE ALL LOVED THE CANDY. IT BROUGHT BACK GREAT MEMORIES TO MYSELF AND MY HUBBY. YOU CAN FIND THESE AMAZING CANDY BOXES AT WOODSTOCK. CHECK OUT ALL THE GREAT PICTURES BELOW.
DISCLAIMER:I WAS GIVEN AN ASSORMENT OF THE CANDY. I WASNT CONPENSATED IN ANY OTHER WAY FOR THSI REVIEW. THESE ARE ALL MY OWN OPINIONS.
